Paediatrician

There must be a reason why your 2 and a half year old son will not eat for the past two months. Obviously he cannot keep on only drinking milk as this will lead to other problems such as anaemia. Your son must be seen by a a paediatrician so that he can be carefully examined and the reason found for his eating problem.
