Hi I am also new to the PKU world. I have 3 boys and the youngest one is the only one with PKU. My youngest is 6mos old now and we will be starting solids in about 2 weeks. I am very nervous about this but my dietican assures me that it will not be difficult. I will let you know how it goes and I will be gald to pass along any advice that she might give me for making family friendly meals because that is also an issue in my family. In the mean time good luck. I can tell you that your PKU child is going to loook and act like a normal baby. My son is already 22lbs and people do not know anything is wrong with him unless I bring up the topic of PKU. Anyways good luck, I am sure you will do fine.
