Danny eats breakfast at 7, a snack at 9:30, lunch at noon, a snack at 3:30, dinner between 5 and 5:30 and a snack at 7.
Do interruptions in your schedule mess up their eating habits?
Danny had been eating 2000 or more calories per day for several weeks once we got his appetite back to normal but last week we were on vacation with 14 extended family memebers and needless to say, the feeding schedule we have always had got WAY out of wack. He stopped eating near as much as he was and even though we are back and back on schedule...just got back yesterday so super early to tell a difference...he is showing no signs of improvment so far.
Do you think that the change in schedule is what has made him stop eating as much? I know schedule changes will affect behavior but can that cross over into not eating more than the equivalent of one meal throughout the entire day? He has never had issues keeping his intake up before when our schedule has changed but he also had never stopped eating more than 2000 calories a day until this march. He stopped eating for 2 days, then would eat 1-3 bites per day for about a week, then ate one meal per day then gradually worked up to eating the 2000 calories per day again. It is just so aggravating that everything changed so quickly and with switching GI's has made it harder eventhough this GI is doing more. The old GI stopped doing anything and refused to believe there was anything going on other than a behavioral refusal to eat. He said that even if he was lethargic and laying on the couch all day he wouldn't take any further action as long as he was still on the weight % charts. o.O I was shocked.
Anyway...back to the original question... Do you think it is just the schedule change and hopefully he should be back to normal soon? I am calling the doc too and will let you know what they say later on today.
I think change in schedule interupts everything. Kids are very routine oriented and when there is a change i just think sometimes ..its kinda like you have to retrain them Hopefully he will be back to normal in no time
