My 3 yr olds tonsils touch his uvula,he is a picky eater,breath always smells bad,gags easily and it seems like he has allergies always. Concerned?
Apnea?: If he snores he may also have apnea in which case an sleep screen and ENT evaluation is warranted. Otherwise, large tonsils are often best left alone because he will "grow into them" He probably also has adenoids which can cause nasal congestion and mouth breathing so allergy treatment is usually ineffective.

It takes tons of patience and persistence and some intervention from speech therapy a lot of times to help. See your Pediatrician or FP about this as well as about using Miralax (polyethylene glycol) for the constipation. ...Read more
My son has autism. He is not a picky eater however he will not sit to eat. Sometimes I have to feed him to get him to eat. What can I do about this?
Behavioral therpay: A little compromise, reward mechanism and positive feedback helps. For example, if the autistic child likes a certain activity or desert, one can use those as a positive reinforcement tool.

You are a good mom. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My 2 year old Son-shine is 28lbs and 34 inches tall but a picky eater. I supplement his diet with Pediasure daily.Is his weight normal?
Picky eaters: Picky eating habits will drive most parents crazy. At 2 yr the grow rate has slowed to ~5lb/3inch/yr which is much slower than earlier. Feeding matches need.

If you only offer nutritious choices, they'll get what they need. Discuss with your Dr. ...Read more
