sudden change in child activity
veronica91 posted:
My five year old has suddenly gained weight she has went from a size 6 to a size 12 in 3 months. She falls asleep within seconds of getting in a car. She is sleeping in class. She moves very slowly doing anything. Its causing problems with her learning. She will suddenly fall asleep during conversations. Standing up. When I tell her to wake up she says she is awake its her eyes. Her eyes are sleeping but she isnt is how she explains it.

If you haven't yet taken her to the pediatrician and discussed this, I would ASAP.

You are right to be concerned when there is any drastic change in a child's behavior.

This definitely warrants a Dr. visit - - if you did if fact take her to the Dr., what did he or she say ??
