I get so frustrated. For a while I thought he was going to start eating normal but he is back to his same routine. I put him in his high chair but he never wants to eat. He can feed himself now but he just doesn't like to eat very much. He still gets almost all of his nutrition from pediasure. He will go several days without eating anything at all, just pediasure. But his weight is good now. He is in the tenth percentile which I am happy with. Just frustrated with him.

Do I ever understand your frustration!!! Abigail ate perfectly normal for about a week and a half and then we went flop. It's bad enough now that she won't even drink her pediasure or milk really. She might drink two cups a day and if we both fight her for a few hours she will eat one meal out of three and no snacks. We go back to the dr tomorrow to check her weight so I guess we will see how it goes. We are moving this weekend and after we get settled I am going to try to find a dr who will try to do something. I am so scared though, after one dr callign social services because of her weight it just scares me. Hopefully everything will go ok though. Oh, at our WIC appointment a few days ago the nurse said something about using vitiman b12 to try and boost their apitite, have you ever heard anything about that? just wondering!

I have never heard of using it for that but it couldn't hurt. You are not the first person I have known that had social services called on me. I started keeping a paper trail with Brandon. In October I brought him to one hospital's ER after him not eating for three days. When they said they wouldn't admit him I wrote on the paper that they refused to admit him and that I requested that he was admitted. I wanted it on paper that way if anyone accused me of being a problem or if anything happened to my baby then I would have proof of it in writing.

I have a great pediatrician now but I went through several peds with him before I got help. If you don't find one you like go to another one. Be demanding.
