About a week ago, my 12 mo. old would eat pretty much anything you'd set in front of him. Now, though, he's pretty much stopped eating. Just to give you an idea of how much he would eat a day, he'd eat 3 meals and 2 snacks consisting mainly of finger food and he would eat a full jar of 2nd foods baby food, usually some type of fruit. Now, he'll eat a few bites of baby food and mostly throw all finger food. Today, he had a few bites of banana and strawberry 3rd foods, a few bites of hamburger, 3 or 4 French fries, and a saltine cracker. He had a little bit of a stomach bug for the past two days but it didn't really slow him down all that much. I was pushing breastmilk then to keep his fluids up, but even when he would kind of express an interest in eating, he wouldn't really eat much. Should I be concerned? I kind of am, but I don't want to call the ped. until I know that something's wrong, you know? He's a very skinny kid mostly because of his food allergies and so it's especially concerning because I don't want him to lose more weight. How can I get him back on track?

All you can do is keep offering him food, you can't force him to eat. If you sit down to eat a meal with him, instead of just putting him in his highchair to eat, he might be more likely to eat his food... if he sees you eating too. I wouldn't worry about it too much, he'll eat when he gets hungry. I understand your concern though.
