My son and his feeding issues

 He has a wellness check for when he is 2.5 years but because of his eating issues, I have made an apt two weeks from now

Here is link to a previous post

I love my son so much that this just breaks my heart. I can't just sit back and do nothing. I am in tears because of my worry. I hope something can be figured out.

I didn't go through the whole other post but can you add protein powder to his smoothies? If you get something like muscle milk, it tastes pretty good and you can easily add several hundred calories to a smoothie. Peanut butter, bananas and coconut oil are other good smoothie additives that pump up the calories without making it taste bad.

I've had the same issues with my ds for 4 years. Up and down. He's been close to a feeding tube multiple times. It is stressful. He's going to a feeding clinic Thursday. This is our last step to try before a feeding tube.
