13 months old lack of appetite

Hi - My 13 months old is constipated and lacking appetite. His hemoglobin was 'low' at his last appointment - 10.0. Should be at least 11. I took him to a homeopath, and she prescribed Calc Carb (not sure about the potency) - told me to give him one small white pellet twice a day for 5 days, then give it once a day for 3 more weeks. It has been a few days only. He pooped on the second day (usually it's every 3 to 4 days) but his appetite has not increased. Should I ask my homeopath for a new remedy to improve his appetite or wait?

p.s. I am still breastfeeding him, he drinks about 10 ounces of breast milk during the day, sometimes 3-4 more ounces of cow's milk (organic, raw, unhomogenized). He does not really drink water. He eats everything, but in very small quantities - just 3-4 baby spoons, that's it.

thank you!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Whether the homeopath popped some pills herself into your son's mouth or she has only given you the remedy.
In the second case it is not wise to give remedy to your child daily.
In the first case she should have given the remedy to your child and given you the blank globules to be administered later.

Calc carb is not a good medicine for babes. Bcs it often reduces weight.

Ask him for China 30

Dear Galina,

Children are very lazy for munching the food & if they get enough quantity of milk they do not bother to eat.At the same time since the child is not eating mothers out of shear concern give lot of milk.
Your child also should be fed with less milk & instead offer food & in case it refuses let him go hungry for few days.on 4th or 5th day he will jump at the food.The milk should not be more than a cup in the morning & a cup in the evening.
Constipation is purely due to lack of drinking water & no intake of solid food.
All will set right if you will change your approach & be firm with him.
Happy mothering!!!!
