Our expert says:
I am sorry to hear that you little lad suffers from asthma, which can affect his general health and food intake. Because of his allergies and the fact that he has to use all these medications I would like to recommend that you have him and his diet assessed by a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). At the age of 21 months, children should no longer be drinking milk from a bottle, but from a cup. If he is allergic to cow's milk (I presume this is the case because you are giving him Isomil), then he could be drinking soy milk which is commercially available in most supermarkets. This is another reason why I would recommend that a dietitian should examine him to see if he is allergic or if he can use dairy products like yoghurt for example which would reduce his fluid intake and help with the potty training. Otherwise his diet seems reasonable, esp as you give him Vidaylin with iron and Scotts emulsion (be careful not to overdose him with vitamin A as this can also have a negative effect).
