Jimmy is not eating much. At 19 months, it's getting pretty worrisome. He's also stopped growing vertically and his weight gain is extremely slow. He's gone from 95th percentile in weight at birth to 5th percentile and dropping. We thought we'd gotten him eating well in the last month or so, but he's now stopped again. He just doesn't want to eat, only wants the boob! There are some things about him that worry me. He's very pale. I know this can be a sign of anemia. Since he's noy eating well we're giving him half a flintstone vitamin daily. He has a bunch of patches of skin with no pigment. As he gets older and exposed to the sun I notice more. I have read that these can be related to autoimmune diseases, some connected to the intestines, that can cause malabsorption of vitamins and cause anemia etc. and failure to thrive. Maybe eating makes him uncomfortable so he refuses food? I wonder if there is something wrong with his throat? He tries to gag himself a lot, sometimes even makes himself vomit. When he was born they shoved a bunch of tubes down his throat and sucked the crud from his lungs. Could they have damaged his throat in some way that would make eating uncomfortable? I am so worried! Am I just being overanxious or should I really be upset?
