I have a 2 year 4 month old boy who has always had feeding issues. After lots of different advice from professionals, and a long time of worrying about him, it has been decided that he should be on a liquid diet (peptamen junior). The pediatrician wants him to see a GI doctor, for a load of tests. They think he has some problem with his digestive system and I am extremely worried. Has anybody else had similar problems with their little ones? He Is very small for his age and underweight. He is ill more than he is well and I really want to know the cause.

Just waiting on the appointments to come through the post, I'm not waiting for too long. I will go private if I have to.

Like your DR said, get him in to see a specialist to get tests done. It could be anything from allergies to something more serious. Get him in ASAP, too. Good luck!

Use are with a liquid diet ... if people don't learn young how to eat solid foods, they seldom do learn. You don't want him on a liquid diet for the rest of his life
