  • Will he drink anything? I went through the same thing with my toddler. If he will drink something you can get the formula made for toddlers, or the boost drinks that are made for kids. Anything that is nutritious like that in a liquid form will help. Will he eat anything at all? Is he just refusing to eat what you give him or refusing to eat anything? I ask this because my son was very very picky about what he ate. I would just try the nutritional drinks and see if that helps. It did for me.

  • have you taken him to the dr? maybe his throat or stomach hurts when he eats. try giving him ensure or something like it jus to keep him thriving until you can see he pediatrician.

  • If he's losing a lot of weight, I would talk to your pediatrician.
