This is a 3 year old boy who is still on baby formula from a bottle because he can not eat anything at all without vomiting it back up. It's my cousins grandson, who he has custody of. His wife is the one that has always taken the boy to the pediatrician and has been telling my cousin that the pediatrician says this is not a problem because he gets all he needs from the formula. Last month my cousin went with her for the first time and asked the dr. what they should do, the dr. said to cut him down from 6 bottles a day to 3. Of course this did not help because the boy can not physically eat without being sick, it has nothing to do with him just not being hungry. Now my cousin says that when he even opens the fridge and the boy smells food it makes him start to gag, this gagging just started happening. He finally made his wife get an appointment with a specialist, who scheduled an upper gi and she missed the first two appointments, on the 3rd one she made it, but the boy would not drink the barium so they told her they couldn’t do anything else. My cousin did call himself to schedule another appointment, at the end of June. But what I am wanting to know is, if this is a medical problem, like reflux or something, why can he keep the formula down, but nothing else and why is he gagging now at the smell of food? That gagging makes me thing it's in his head and it's more of an eating disorder. Please let me know what you think, I have no experience with this kink of thing at all and just need to get started in the right direction. I have told my cousin I am doing this and if anyone has any questions or needs more information, I can ask him, please let me know. Thank you so much.:confused:Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
