I've asked before but I'm asking again. I'm very concerned about my almost 10 year old son. He barely eats anything other than foods, mainly junk in the grains group. He likes all junk food- sweets, chips, etc.. He eats no veggies, sometimes apples.He will be 10 the end of September and he is currently 52 inches tall and only 52 pounds. He's afraid to try new foods, recently starting with anxiety when he eats which puts him in the bathroom to go. I'm very concerned for him and his health. What can I do?

My son is 6 weeks today. He used to poop 3-4 times a day
HelloMy son is 6 weeks today. He used to poop 3-4 times a day since birth. However, 3 days ago he only popped once,he only pooped once the day after, only once yesterday and today he has not even pooped! He farts and he strains all day on and off, but no poop.All the poops so far have been soft, not hard.I am just concerned of the sudden change? Also he has been eating more lately so I figured logic says he should poop more, not less?He eats around 30 oz of formula (gerber gentle ready to feed) and 6 oz of breastmilk a day.Thoughts? Thanks! I am very concerned as he has now gone over 30 hrs without a bowel movement.
