Hi - sorry to hear about your son's not wanting to eat. I would definitely get the help of a behavioral feeding expert to help you out. I would also think that the gf/cf diet would NOT be a good idea because it limits the foods he can have and right now you probably want him to eat anything. Definitely have a medical doctor check out everything else and then I would get a feeding specialist in. I would also reinforce highly when he does eat -make a big deal about it so he might want to do more of it.
Good luck to you.

PS I don't know where you live but I think Columbia University in New York has a feeding clinic(possibly)
