Refusing to eat.
Gabe has a chest infection & is refusing food, has been for days. Today he has had 4oz milk and 1/2 a stage 1 jar of food. Whereas usually he would have had 3 7oz bottles and 3 substantial meals by now! He has been the same for days. He is only having 1/2 strength formula on advice of GP as he has also had diarea but he is no better and screams and arches his back if you put the bottle near him. GP prescribed diarelyte to rehydrate him but he totally refuses it, in fact he won't let hardly anything near his mouth (its a battle getting the antibiotics down him - actually have to hold his nose so he opens his mouth & I can pour it in quick!). He is so unhappy and unsettled. Which can't be helped by the fact he must be SO hungry.
