Hi there! I can completely understand your concerns with starting solids. My son is 6 months old and we have an appointment with the dietican next week. We plan on starting solids after that appointment so I am pretty nervous about that. I really like our dietican and I know that she will help me but I still worry that I will mess something up. I also have a four year old(non pku) and a two year old (non pku)so I am also worried about him going through a picky eating stage, but I guess I will just deal with it when we get there. My son is also a really big baby, but so were my other kids so I wouldn’t worry too much about your child being overweight. I am sure that your dietican would tell you if she was concerned, besides all of the rolls of fat make really cute babies. nMarie
