Two year old needs to put on weight
I have twin boys. Whilst my one little one has put one weight nicely, his brother is underweight. He is a very small eater - we practically force feed him. He doesn''t want to swallow. Will have his formula nicely, but refuses to eat.

The paed says we must just be patient with him. He did suffer reflux as a baby and the paed says maybe he is hesitant to eat becos of that.

Please, can anyone advise on what I can do to help him put on weight. Are their any special formulas that he can drink? Will Pediasure or Promise PE help? Anyone tried them?

Any special foods we can make? I will just about try anything for him to catch up with his brother.

Please advise.
