My 3 yr old son wont eat anything not even his favourite foods anymore but i have put him back on toddler formula so he isnt malnurished, and he has started to suck/bite his fingers and his clothes??? How can i get him to eat and stop eating his clothes.

My doctor once told me that no child will starve to death on it's own accord. It is human nature to eat when hungry. Offer him what ever he will eat, and he will come around. As long as you're sure there isn't an underlying digestive problem like Chrones or lactose intolerance, don't worry...He will eventually get hungry enough. I'd continue with pediasure or something like that in the meantime.

My 22 month old won't eat anything or his favorite foods right now. He's eating his hands, clothes, toys, anything that he can put into his mouth. I'm hoping it's because his 2 yr molars are coming in. Could teething be the problem? Good Luck!
