  • Is the pediatrician concerned about the weight? What does he eat? Is he drinking milk? Have you tried pediasure?

    I used to be like that when i was a kid. My mom used to threaten me that i would have to be taken to the hospital is I didn't eat, it never happened. He's eat when he's hungry. You might need to find something he really likes. My mom was making be chicken wings for a long time just to get me to eat.
