Thank you all for your input. I really appreciate it. Brea Marie I think that you are correct and that people use this forum for support and advice and that is why there are some sad stories – just when you are frightened for your child and their future life, some of these stories really jump out. I get more and more positive as the weeks go on and as my daughter reaches the various milestones. I am confident that I will be good at encouraging her to stick to the diet, I will just have to make sure that her food is varied and enjoyable. I will have to start experimenting!!! Like you say most people are on some kind of diet – whether for weight or for allergies. My husband jokes I am always on a diet! My husband is reading up a lot on Kuvan and we would be really interested to hear how you get on Tracie – please keep us informed and good luck. Tracie, Jammnm and BreaMarie – thank you so much for making a nervous mum feel better.
