Your story sounds so much like mine! My DS is 3 and we just did some feeding therapy with him because he has absolutely no interest in food and we were still feeding him baby food. The root of his problems turned out to be a sensory disorder which we started working on last summer with brushing and listening therapy. After his sensory issues have resolved, we are now left with still no interest in food because he always used to gag and throw up so he is completely traumatized by all of that. He is now eating solid food but meals take a very long time and he is very tiny. If left on his own, he also would never ask to eat or drink. We did try an appetite stimulant and it did not work for us because there were underlying issues, not just not feeling hungry. If you want to email me I would love to tell you how we finally managed to get help because, like you, our ped kept blowing me off. My DS also did not like things on his tongue prior to his sensory therapy. You can get my email from my profile if you want to chat more!!
