In Topic: What If They Won't Eat?

Thanks Michelle & Bridget-

Yes, we've tried Pediasure (and meal replacement bars, and protein powder....)
and he simply is not going for it. When I try to slip him something in his juice he just sniffs it, then hands it back to me.

He is really incredibly willful (late talkers usually are) but I can't tell if this is something he'll grow out of. And in the meantime, he still has to eat, right? I know I need to make an appt. w/ a nutritionist, but I'm fairly certain insurance won't cover that, and I quit working when we realized something was wrong with Kent....

AAARRRGH!

My husband and I went gluten-free after my son did- it seemed cruel to have things in the house he wasn't allowed to eat. (I really miss Krispy Kreme donuts!)

The only thing that seems expensive to me is Gluten-Free Pantry mixes- but I buy them anyway. My attempts at scratch baking were not terribly successful.

Your daughter has the same symptoms my son did. When I asked his ped. to test for celiac, he blew me off, and said he was certain Kent did not have it. At the time of the appt, my son had grown 1/2 inch IN A YEAR. I ignored the doctor, figured a change in diet couldn't hurt, and took Kent off of gluten.

He grew three inches in three months, no longer wakes up screaming from gas pain, and his speech continues to improve. I just need to find a new pediatrician before his yearly check up!

Good luck!
