Feeding Issues

My son has always been a big eater. He's been eating about 5 1/2 oz per feeding every 3 hours normally. Well starting on Sunday he hasn't seemed that hungry. He only took 3 1/2 oz at his last feeding which was 3 hours after the feeding before. I breastfed him before so I don't know exactly how much he had. He was doing this yesterday too and I thought it was b/c he needed to poop which he did yesterday afternoon but he still isn't eating what he was. He seems happy and doesn't seem sick or anything else. I have called my doctor to see if I should be concerned but wondering if any of you had any ideas. He has been coughing and sneezing a lot I think due to allergies since I don't think he has a cold and since my husband and I have them as well.

As long as he's peeing and pooping and doesn't seem to be acting sick you have nothing to worry about.

You'll be very hard pressed to find a DR that will say he has allergies at his age (most are firmly against, and most mothers debate this one way or the other).

As he gets older you will notice changes in his eating habits, when he grows more he'll eat more, when he's not growing he'll eat less (my 6 yo is still this way). Being sick, moods, etc will also affect him. Like I said, as long as he's going to the bathroom and acting fine you and him should both be OK.
