About breastfeeding PKU children I just wanted to put in my two bits worth. Some people think you can’t breastfeed children who have PKU but they are wrong. That happened with my mother, when I was born they’d told her that she had to stop breastfeeding right away or it would hurt me…and my mom being young and new to PKU believed them. Luckily by the time my younger sister (Erica is 7) was born she’d learned that she could. I just thought I’d share that little tid bit in case anyone elses dietian is telling them they can’t breastfeed. nBreanna
