I know just how you feel my son is now almost 9 months old and we found out about his pku when he was 5 days old it was the worst call ever and the two days after that he was only to have the pheyl free formula and it was the worst two days…I had a realy hard time with not being able to nurse like i wanted…i nursed my 5 year old until he was 14 months and i was happy to be able to do this with my second son…I never thought there would be a reason i would not be able to give him this wonderful head start on life..
