Does eating everything in sight = growth spurt?

Both dss have been RAVENOUS lately. Eating, eating, eating. DS1 hasn't grown much in the past year or so (8.10) and ds2 is just generally very tall.

Do you notice that your dc start eating like pigs when they're growing?

Usually it is the only time he tucks into food and asks for more.

SKerryMum Mon 01-Oct-07 15:51:48

And when he does eat like that has he grown CountDior?

Like a weed grin

I better get the measuring tape out.

Really bad timing though as I'm flat broke and he'll need new clothes for sure. DS2 always gets his hand-me-downs (poor thing) so he's sorted.

Yes, and you have to buy new everything don't you!

DS2 has had 3 doses of those feckers!

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let it not be so.

Why does a dose of worms make them eat more?

SKerryMum Mon 01-Oct-07 16:04:42

Yes, calming down a bit. I noticed when ds2 had them he craved SWEETS only not necessarily more food, just more sweet things.

No, hasn't even grown a cm.

Maybe they are laying down stores prior to having a growth spurt. My DD will eat like a horse, start to look like she's carrying some extra weight an then have a massive growth spurt leaving her all lanky again!
