Having a preemie and PKU can make it a little harder I had a 2lbs preemie but I had great doctors though they had never before had a baby that small they managed it well and now my almost four year old is thriving. It is a hard balance because preemies need did nutrients then full term. I breast feed for almost a year and would mix the breast milk with the formula yes at times it was difficult but it was the best thing for Caleb.
