Hi I have a 5 yr old little girl, who after a couple of years thought she might be hyperphe, because her levels dropped really low but they eventually went back up again. Her levels have always been really good, except at 1st of course. She can eat regular bread,pasta and even a small amount of ice cream. She is doing really well, except sometimes it is a struggle to get her to drink the formula. I was hoping someone out there had some helpful tips on how to get my child get her to drink the formula without having to be constantly at her to drink it. It can be fustrating & I feel so bad at times for her.
