Formula in a cup

My son is 12 years old. He drank his formula in a bottle until he was 5 1/2. We then got him on to Sunny delight sports bottles. Sunny delight no longer carries this product. I knew this day would come. My son has a very difficult time with change. Any suggestions??? Thanks Megan

    I personally use a plastic cup with a lid & a straw. This way I can’t smell it and the straw I can choose how wide I want the suppliment to come out! (disgusting I know, but I chew on my straw so all the lumpy bits dont come through!) and Im constantly stirring with the straw so all the lumps end up dissolving and I dont miss any!
    Hope this helps?!?!

    When I was younger I had to make up my formula with loads of powders and tablets and medicines and mix it together before putting it in a bottle. I’d say I used a bottle till I was about 6 or 7, as my parents couldnt’ get me to drink it any other way. Finally I changed to a cup when I was afraid my friends would find out I think. I also had a hard time switching to a new formula, after I got used to my old one, so my mom bribed me with books. She said every week, if I stayed on my formula, she’d buy me two more books! I didn’t have the money to buy them myself so I immediately agreed! I know bribery is bad .. but with pku, sometimes it’s necessary!
