Don’t panic, everything will be fine! Both me and my sister went thru a phase like that and we’re fine! I went thru that phase when I was maybe 3 and 4, I wouldn’t eat at all and I wouldn’t drink my formula for awhile (it worried my parents more because I was already very tiny). nMaybe you could contact your dietian and see if you could try new formulas, if might be that your baby doesn’t like it or her stomach can’t hold it. I know that I used to drink phenylade and it was so thick sometimes I would throw up, just please don’t completely stress! I know that PKU is new and confusing and while the diet is extremely important I’ve learned over the years not to completely stress because if I got a few phes over or under my intake it isn’t going to hurt me. nBreanna
