I ama first time mom and my son is almost 18 months. We went to the doctor yesterday because he woke up Sunday morning at about 5 running a fever, coughing, and had a runny nose. I made the appt with his pedi because we've been through this a lot since January. He had bronchitis 3 times from January to March, then in May he got croup... so when he woke up like that I thought we were about to have another battle with all that junk.
However, when we were in her office I told her he had diarrhea once that morning and I happened to see an ulcer in his mouth when we were being checked in and weighed by the nurse. She said that he had a virus that just had to run its course, and she recommended soft foods and no juice as the ulcer may be hurting him.
I went to Wal Mart and stocked up on yogurt, grapes, pudding, and jello. However, my son is SUPER picky and won't touch the pudding, eats a couple grapes and then they turn into "balls."
All of that to say... do any of you seasoned momma's out there have any advice on soft foods or creative ways to try and get him to eat? I would appreciate any help I could get!
