I have a five year old son who goes through extreme phases where he literally just doesn't eat. He complains of stomach pain, nausea, and occasionally has diarrhoea. At some stages he eats as little as a few bites of a sandwhich a day. He is six this year and weighs a tiny 16 kgs.
I've tried the Doctor who has screened for Coleacs (not sure of spelling) and other obvious illnesses. Nothing. At first I thought it wad an attention thing but it's severe sometimes. He will sit staring at his plate of food, even his favourites for an hour or longer and gag if I make him take a bite.
It's frustrating! I feel like yelling! I feel like crying! It's like watching your child have anorexia or something but I can't see why he won't eat. Out of ideas. Help!!
