I have not heard of growth or development problems as long as the child is following the diet.  As a matter of fact, when I was younger my nutritionist had me meet with all the new PKU parents to put their fears to rest as far as whether their baby can be physically and intellectually normal or not.  They were often scared that their child would be less intelligent and sickly.  But as far as I know, as long as the child is on the diet, then any growth issues are based on other causes.
