I have been reading a lot on soy lately. Grrrrr. It seems a tricky topic...some think a little is ok, some people seem to think you may as well be eating teflon and paint chips with every meal!
I have definitely reduced, almost emilinated soy, but boy, oh, boy soy is in everything! So now I am just confused...just wondering what other people are doing, thinking, the logic, concern, facts and experiences behind it.
I was feeding my 18 month old twin boys soy milk (and breastfeeding). I have now swtiched to Almond milk (which has soy licithin in it...bad? Some say so, that's for sure), and Coconut milk, which is great but I worry about whether they are getting enough protein and calcium (from a natural source - not added in). I am wondering about Goat milk.? Anyone use it? If so, why?
I just hate to drink cows milk and don't trust it for the amount that toddlers consume, so that's why it's not on my list...additionally both my older son and I are lactose intolerant.
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
Blessed be the mammas and the babies. Be kind, love and live well!
