If your sonw as tested for PKU by the doctors (as is required in the U.S, one of the foot pricking exams when a child is born) then there should be nothing wrong speaking in PKU terms. If you have PKU and were off your diet during the pregnancy there is a very good chance that it affected your child. I would say contact your doctor (a PKU doctor)
