HIYA Karen

he's much better now, back to his old self

I broke down and gave him Children's Tylenol (half a dose) because he was feverish but it seemed to work

he's down about half a pound now but it's not too bad

ElliottsMom both, he's eating a bit better now though. so it's not a big concern anymore

rabid_child I'm not entirely sure about what you're asking... are you concerned about his calorie intake or his vitamin intake? Or both?

ElliottsMom so my little guy caught the flu, long story, he's getting over it but still has no appetite. he gets a multi vitamin everyday but I'm lucky if he'll eat a piece of toast. is there any kind of vegan suppliment like Pediasure I could give him? something that would be available at a grocery store?
