Q.

scotts emulsion

Hello

I have a 18 month old that does not want to eat when we give her Scotts Emulson.

Is it an appetite suppresant, ?

When we donot give her she eats her normal meals ?

Scotts emulsion is not an appetite suppressant, in fact it usually has the opposite effect in children.There is obviously no need to persist in giving Scotts emulsion to your daughter as it does not seem to agree with her.
