My 21 mo son is refusing solids - He does not want to be spoonfed anymore and is not fingerfeeding himself neither. For longer time he is mainly on fluids + occasionally some crunches. All say toddlers go thru stages but I am so very much concerned about his vitamins intake. He is loosing weight and the drops prescribed to him make him having diarrhea (side effect), it lowers his appetite ... etc. He has been sat to the table on empty stomach with no fluids offered but variety of tastes and textures. Hopeless, he does not even attempt to try. I even considered signing him to preschool for him to adopt behavior from peers but am not sure will it help. He spills out with his tongue anything I manage give him - pures, solids etc. Please help.
