Time to find a new doctor. Period. Have your son evaluated by "early intervention" and/or a speech therapist in your area.

this is the 4th Dr with no results, Im taking it into my own hands and when i get to childrens mercy for his scope im gonna demand occupational therapy. how do you cut out entirely a childs source of nutrition and say eat this or starve. thats what they all tell me to do. ive had enough of it and i think they all need to find a new profession, hes obviously not going to outgrow this..they all say its alarming im allowing him to control me. maybe i need to send them here and see it is not just my child.
