Could something be wrong or is this normal

DD2 has not been herself lately. It's hard to know if anythings up as she's not the most reliable kid. Most of the time she seems ok. nursery haven't said anything except that she's been a bit cuddle the past couple of weeks or so.

no obvious symptoms no cold, no vomiting or diarrhoea, she sleeps well and usually eats really well.

But lately she just seems more tired than usual in the day. complains of tummy ache , says she's hungry alot then when it comes to lunch or dinner time she hardly eats whereas before she used to nearly finish her plate unless it was something she didnt like.

She also used to finish her lunch at nursery but has started leaving bits.

All this is fine in don't expect her to eat everything all the time I'm not one to be bothered how much they do or don't eat as being a small child I'm. used to one week stuffing her face and the next living off fresh air grin

Just something seems not quite right and I can't put my finger on it.

toilet habits all normal, sleeping fine. although we do have the occasional waking up because something hurts in the past few weeks which I don't know if it's true or not.

I don't want to waste a drs time as I said she's not the most reliable of children.

If you're worried, take her to a Doctor to get checked out. A Doctor will happily set your mind at rest or do further tests if necessary. I think it's always better to get things checked out. At least if it persists, it'll be documented.

Thank you for your reply. It's always hard when it's not something that's so outwardly and obviously wrong. But I'm glad you wouldn't see it as a wasted trip. she fallen asleep now we haven't really done anything today besides school run. I get her up at half six and she's in bed between 7-7:30 so a good stretch of sleep.
