hi, my daughter is 3 next week and she has pku but i have to say she’s as good as gold, she’s in nursey a lot of the day but if she does start to play up she gets a choice, she either stops what shes doing or she can choose to either go to bed have her toys taken away etc, she always chooses to be good. She did used to have a tantrum in the supermarket but i left her on the floor and hid round the corner, needless to say she doesn’t do it any more. Is anyone starting to have trouble getting the gels down, cause i want to get her out of nappies during the night but if she doesn’t take them during the day i have no option. Any mums with older kids got any suggestions
