My child is scared to eat. Help!
My 4 yr old recently got the oh-so fun stomach bug about a month ago. For about 2 weeks after, she was afraid to eat for fear of vomiting. Doc said to be patient, she would get back on track. Finally, she was back to herself, eating normally. Then, out of the blue, she regressed and started acting like she did previously, saying she was scared to eat b/c she didn't want to throw up. We have reassured her over & over, that she is ok, that there is nothing wrong with her, etc. She has eaten sporadically, but this has really messed her up. Has anyone ever seen this happen with their child? I am desperate, scared, stressed and worried at this point and don't really know what to do anymore.
