My 21 month old daughter more often than not refuses to eat. I've had to force feed her and it usually takes two people. One to hold her hands and head and one to feed her. Most of what goes in is usually spit right back out. This even happens with her favorite foods. Recently, I've begun giving her the PediaSure shakes to supplement what little bit she does eat but I don't want her to become dependent on them. Is this a phase or is there something wrong?View Thread
my daughter is 21 months and that has been happening to her since she was 5 months old. I too am told time and time again that its just a cold and theres nothing they can do for a viral infection. I worry too because it doesnt seem normal to me that a child should stay constantly sick. I wish I knew the answer but maybe its something that they will grow out ofView Thread
