    eating habit changed

    though my 9 month old son is at 90 percentile in terms of weight, he suddenly refuse to eat and drink worries me. I can feel that he is much lighter when I carried him.
    This started 3 days ago. He probably is having half or even less than what he usually has, both milk and solid.

    I am not sure what causes that. Anyone has experience? I am suspecting two things 1) teething or 2) change of environment (my parents who usually be around and play with him a lot is away. is that possible to affect his diet).

    children eventually stop gaining as much as they did in the begining.

    it could be a combination of things. including what you mentioned.

    give it a few more days and then take him to the doctor if you are really worried about it, but from the sounds of things he's still eating, just not as much.

    They go through phases like that, it's common and not really a cause for concern, but if it persists for a while, then youc an talk to your pediatrician about it.

    My older LO went through exactly this when she was 9 months. It was a combination of getting her first teeth and crawling that made her less interested in eating. She was probably drinking just 12 oz a day and she was only in the 25-50%! Eventually things went back to normal.
