Hi there! I’m wondering if your sons formula has too many calories in it that it’s filling him up and he may not want to eat if he’s feeling full? Perhaps your dietician could adjust his formula? I have a one year old daughter who takes her formula just fine and eats real well, we’re very lucky, but we have days were she doesn’t feel like eating as well. We give her a tablespoon of yogart, that is about 34 mg of phe a tablespoon and we give her 1 ounce of milk which is 50 mg of phe. Our Dr. and Dietician offered us these tips to help get her there ; )
