I have posted on this forum in the past abt my micto preemie's eating issue. He has absolutely no interest in food. none whatspever no cake no candies no chips. I have spoken to my ped. who seems to think he is fine and dismisses my concern. Yes he has been growing in height and weight because I sit with him at every meal for an hour so that he finishes his meal. Some of you may think this is a wrong approach but I have tried the approach where I wait for him to ask me if he is hungry. Eg one day he ate no BK no lunch no snack not even water till 5 pm (no exaggeration here) at which point I broke down and fed him his meal. I am not concerned abt his weight or height I just want him to feel hungry. I have made 2 trips to speech therapist and she says everything is fine. In the past she did mention taking him to a ped. gastoentologist and giving him appetite enhancer.
He has never shown interest in food and when he sits with me he dreams of cars and trains so he forgets to chew. On another note he chews everything including yogurt before swallowing. Also when he opens his mouth to eat or drink his tongue is rolled up so he puts food under his tongue not over and then rolls it to the side.
Anybody has experience with appetite enhancers? Your thoughts.
