Hi nEaston was my first baby too. It was hard at first to hear that something was “wrong”. Easton is almost two now and doing very well. Now Easton’s dietary needs are second nature to my husband and I. I think if Easton had been our second or third child it would have been a little more difficult to make the needed changes to our dietary lifestyle. nYou can tell your friend that though they make have to make some unplanned changes to what they eat as a family, their baby will be happy and healthy. There are lots of great tasting choices. And thankfully they were able to find this out when she was only a week old rather than months later.
