I am kind of concerned about my sons eating or lack of.... my son will be 2 in November and only eats 5-6 bites of a few different things a day. Some days he eats less some days a few more... I just think he should be eating more am I wrong? He is my first child and im not sure if this is normal or if I should talk to his doctor about it? any advice or help would be greatly appreciated

my kids really like the pediasure drinks. They have the calcium of milk, but they taste really good. You may try those

my son hates milk..... I can only get him to drink maybe and oz a day... the only way he will drink more then that is if it is his cereal... then he likes to tip the bowl and drink the milk but not eat the cereal lol but still doesn't drink a lot of milk maybe 3-4 oz then

My daughter went through a phase of not eating.. Her pediatrician said that it was completely normal. As long as your child is drinking milk and/or pedialite, he is getting enough nutrients. My daughter's doctor said "When she's ready to eat more, she will". I hope that helps. :)
