Toddler girl with no appetite

Hello dr and every one on the forum;

I need to consult a serious matter for my little girl. She is born on Nov 1, 2009; almost three years now but she has very poor appetite, the only thing she wants is a glass of milk all time, she does not eat any thing else, no candy, no chocolate, no coockie or buiscut. She has been under 50th percentile for height and for weight all the time; she is mostly around 30th percentile for weight and height; she is very pale and skinny, i did try to put her on iron and multivitamin and omega 3/6 but nothing seems to improve her appetite or weight or height. She is growing but less than her peers.

Her hands are supper warm all the time, some time i feel may be she has fever but she does not have fever.
She is super active, running arround all the time, jumping, playing. She is a little bossy and a bit agressive, but over all she is a happy child. She picks up the stuff very fast, so mentally she is very intelligent.

I dont know her current weight and height, currently i am giving her a counter medicine Euro cyproheptadine to stimulate the appetite, it seems to work a little but i am not in favor of alopathy for small children.

So please advise; urgently, thank you.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
This seems to be your first child.
A few important points:

1. Stop Euro cyproheptadine as it should never be given to small kids.

2. Children at this playful age feel that eating food & chewing etc is a waste of time instead playing is important.

3. Milk is a complete food & 2-3 glasses of milk is more than sufficient for a days quota of food & no labour of chewing etc is reqd.

All new mothers come to me with this probem & say 'KUCH KHATA HI NAHI HAYE TO MILK TO DENA HI HOTA HAYE, BECHARA BHUKA SOTA HAYE'


One cup (150ml)in morning & one cup of milk in the evening is just enough to be given.

As for medicine Give him only one dose of NATRUM MUR 200c in one of the evenings at about 7-00PM & forget about it.
He will slowly improve.

Yes just one dose will be enough provided you follow other suggestions I have given in the post.

NATRUM MUR is a slow but very deep acting remedy.

You are welcome for any other help. you may also send me a personal mail on my ID which is in the profile, if you feel so.

Thank you Dr sb;
I forgot one very important thing about her; she has very bad travel sickness, even if we drive for 15 minutes she will start throwing up, but since i am giving her euro cyproheptadine, she doest not have that issue, now we travelled about 6 hr driving and she was absolutely fine, so in this case what to do?
