Rekha - I'm not familiar with where too much water would cause colds and do not believe any fruits would cause your son to get a cold.  I've seen where my children have occasionally passed bowel movements which have looked like pebbles - I've seen everything come out of my kids from diarrhea to an almost sand like consistency.  I don't worry about it unless it doesn't change for several days in a row.  Usually, the pebble consistency is caused from a lack of moisture in the intestines.  This is where your comment about him drinking water concerns me some - how often is he getting milk?  Is he still breast feeding?  Appetite changes often happen during growth spurts (periods where the child will seem to want to sleep either more or less often than normal and eat more or less than normal.  My kids, during growth spurts, usually would sleep as lose their appetite.  It's nothing to worry about unless it goes on consistently for longer than a week or two - or if he completely refuses to eat for several days in a row.  I'm not familiar with thyroid problems in infants and do not believe that your son is suffering from one.  I believe that his bowel movements are normal, don't know if there are significant weather changes where you are, maybe a change in the seasons or more/less rainy than usual - this could be causing sinus problems instead of an actual cold.

I can answer questions about children from newborn (including preemie) to school age. I can also try to provide emotional support for people who have had a stillborn child. I am a part-time working, stay-at=home, online college attending Mom who has a very hectic schedule and love it. I also have my own blog -, which includes a very affordable email recipe subscription, shirts supporting my site (all proceeds from shirt sales go into my children's savings accounts, so please be generous) and - coming soon - some of my hand crocheted items (pillows and stuffed animals).


I have 7 children - 2 daughters born November 2004, November 2005, a son born September 2008, a son born in September 2010, a son born February 2013, a son born October 2014 and a son born February 2016. My daughter born in 2005 was a preemie (3 months early) and I also had a daughter stillborn in 2006 and a miscarriage of a daughter in 2009.

I am a lifetime member of Business Professionals of America.


I have a diploma in Child Day Care and an Associate Degree in Teacher Aide. I have worked in the Day Care field, as well as having my own children.
