I know its been a long time since youve posted, and I am hoping that you have found answers by now. But, just incase, I thpight I would relay my experience and what helped!
My daughter, right before she turned 2 started the same thing, not eating. What she ate in a week seemed to be what she should have eaten in a day. SOmetimes it was my imagination and hypersensitivity to the matter. I started writing everything down, and then I would look at it from a week long and then month long perspective. From those views I saw it wasnt as bad as I felt it was on a day to day basis. But she still wasnt eating enough. About a month into this her 1st molar broke. I realized that this was probably a major reason for this lack of appetite. Her attitude also changed dramatically in this time, and she was really difficult and MOODY! (she was born with an attitude, but it just got to the point where we couldnt laugh at it any more!)
By the time we got thru her molars, about 2 months total, she was back to eating, and for a while she ate like a horse!! I think she probably lost a little weight, about a pound, but her body shifted around a lot, she got more of a toddler form to her.
Basically, watch the over all signs. Is he generally healthy and happy and like his normal self? Has he gotten his 2 yr molars? Does he like to chew a lot more on things? Write his diet down and look at it from a weekly perspective. And most importantly, listen to your innerself. If you feel like something is realy wrong, seek help!
I do hope al of this is behind you and that this message is now useless!
