I’m sorry you can’t get the special phe free milk too. I was lucky that my son didn’t need it until he was 9 months old. It sounds like your daughter needs it now? If your baby is taking breastmilk, that’s the next best thing. It’s lower in phe than store bought formula. But at two weeks, if she’s not being breastfed, it would be hard to start back up.
good luck,
