My 21 month old baby boy was recently sick and he is still on medication. He has lost his appetite and is refusing to eat. This for me is very concerning, especially because before his cold/flu he ate everything! Now he just cries all the time and won't eat anything. Help!

I appreciate the feedback, I feel so much better that he is now back to normal, he is now eating well and running around the place like he did before,

My son recently had a bad cold and would not eat nor drink anything. I finally had to go to the store and grab random items I thought he might like. He liked to stick to the softer and less acidic drinks and foods. It got him eating and now he's back on the right track. I also got him some pedialite to help him keep hydrated. I usually put some crackers or something on his plate on the couch and when he got hungry he would eat them.

When my kids are sick, they don't eat. It usually takes 1-2 weeks after recovery for my kids to fully get their appetite back. I agree, keep him hydrated. I don't understand what you mean by custard in his bottle though.
