I was on PKU 2 when I was younger and I had to get a lot of cavity’s filled. It is because of how much sugar is in the formula to help with taste. I never heard of anyone starting that young on the formula. I wiould say just make sure he visits the dentist and check with your doctor if there isnt any lower sugar containting products that your child can use for medication.
