Created by Updated on Jul 04, 2013
Hi all, My son(3. 5yrs) now a days wants to sleep more..... i mean he takes enough sleep in night n noon nap too... whn he gets up ...he again feel sleepy.... earlier he was quite active and after noon sleep he never gets tired n sleepy.... I hv heard it happens due to lack iron deficiency. i give him b'ced diet. I m little bit concern for this new developement. Could any of you suggest me/share ur experience... whether it is due to some defficiency or lack of proper diet OR its normal. I hvnt weigh him for the last 4months but i believe his weight shud b ok.

Dear AM it is important to check child's weight and height so as to c where they stand in terms of grwoth and development. I wud like to know few things before we proceed further. Has there been any recent new development in his life like joining playschool, or any dance /music /sports class due to which his sleep cycle has been changed? If no, Please do notice any other change such as change in behavior, irritability, emotional disturbance, change in diet, weight( has he lost wt. ), any kind of complaints such as tonsils, bodyaches etc. IF there is no associated change other than the problem u fhave mentioned it could be just due to boredom for which there is no reason to worry. But if u have noticed any other change such as mentioned above please look for possible causes n consult ur paediatrician.
