  • since he had a stomach virus, which was probably painful for him, he is afraid of eating. if he drinks milk, then thats great. add some honey to it.

    no matter what he asks for to eat, even if its cookies, give them to him. it will take him a few days. but dont worry, he will eat. and if its getting to "strange", then go back to the doctor with him

  • hmm try crackers...or maybe if your conserned put yogurt in his milk atleast he'll be getting some nutrients...offer cereal to it works for my kids

  • Start with something soft...soup, pudding, bread...ask him what he wants and go with that for now. Get him back on track later.

    I agree with m.robertson...he's probably afraid to eat.....

  • Sick or not my toddler never eats the way I want him too, the pediatrician just told me that kids won't starve themselves. I have no advice but you are not alone.

  • We're experiencing the same thing here in our house. I'm just letting him drink as much as he wants and letting him eat whatever he wants. Not to worry. They'll come around eventually. Hang in there mama!
