Dear first time mom: You will do fine. You will have a nutritionist who will see you and you will be testing the child’s numbers weekly at first. Just keeping this under control is your first goal. You have lots to learn but it is not so difficult that you can’t manage it. Read all that you can here and anywhere you can. I have a sister and a grandniece with PKU. You will find this a wonderful place for support and information. Good luck and God bless. Diana
