underweight baby needs help!!!

i have a 17 month old baby that has had a weight problem since he was 7 1/2 months old. here is his history.

i had a difficult pregnancy. i developed preeclampsia and had an emergency c section at 35 weeks. nick was born 5 pounds 2 ounces. he developed jaundice and was put on bili lights at home for a week. he was breast fed until 7 1/2 months at which point i stopped because i could not produce enough milk. i had to pump and feed him because he was very lazy at the breast and would never eat more than three to five minutes then gave up. he needed to be constantly held and would only sleep if i put him on my chest and slept with him. he also had infant acne when he was born. it cleared up after two months. he has had small episodes of eczema that are very mild on his elbows and ocassionally on his sides and back. he now has a very very mild case on his elbows. you cant even see it, you can only feel it. it has never itched him.

he only received one vaccine which was two doses of the DPT. the first time he had no reaction and the second time he developed a slight fever but i treated him with NAET and the fever was gone within 1/2 hour.

he has developed normally except for his weight. he is on the very small side for stature as well. he is a very happy baby. he absolutely loves music and dancing. he loves people. he is very social and has no fear. and i mean no fear. he likes to play rough...the rougher the play the harder he laughs. he also loves to take things apart and demolish them. again..rough play. he also loves to play hide and seek and he likes to spin in circles until he gets dizzy and falls down. he is very entertaining and loves to elicity laughs from the crowd. he is a little love bug and likes to go around blowing kisses and giving hugs.

when he turned one he already had 10 teeth and molars. he speaks about 20 different words at now at the age of 17 months.

his taste in food varies. he doesnt like to eat the same thing for long. he has a problem with reflux and takes pepcid. if i dont give it to him the reflux starts and his appetite disappears. that is his only symptom for the reflux..lack of appetite. we have to entertain him and let him play with toys while he eats so he will eat more. if his attention is diverted he will let you feed him more than if he is just focusing on the food. he rarely will eat a very big meal...but as i said that is rare. he doesn't eat as much as peers his age would eat but we feed him more frequently to up the caloric intake. he wakes up once a night and i give him a protein type shake in a bottle to supplement calories further.

the only other issue is lately he has gotten several colds but i think that may be normal for his age. the colds last about 10 days to two weeks and he sometimes ends up with a chest cold as well.

we have previously consulted homeopaths who have put him on silica 200c which did nothing for him. we have also tried sulfur and tarantula hispanica. the tarantula was 200c and we gave it to him about 4 weeks ago and have not seen any changes.

i would be so grateful if someone could help me get weight on the child. he hasn't put any weight on for two months now. thanks in advance for taking the time to try and help us!!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
i forgot to mention that he has very cold hands and usually his head is hot.

Sulphur 200c one dose only. Report back in a week.

(Take a mineral water bottle Nestle 500 no. Add 1 drop of sulphur 200c in the bottle. Shake it well. Take one table spoon from the bottle and give it to the child.
