I’ve been pretty fortunate when it came to the formula. Easton has always seemed to like it. We use the Mead-Johnson brand of Phenyl-Free. There was another brand we tried once (can’t think of the name) and Easton was vomitting all of it up, even out his nose. nOne of the hardest things was adjusting my thinking when it comes to meal planning. I come from a “meat and potatoes” kind of family. I read through the PKU recipe book often now and look for alternatives when I’m at the grocery store. nJason and I still have a hard time figuring out exactly how many Phe’s Easton takes in some days. You know how babies are. Some food goes in the mouth and some gets thrown on the floor to the dog.
