I had an interesting conversation with a stanger in a store today. It all started when I asked how old his infant son was. when he told me that his son was only 7 months the expression on my face was apparent. I made the comment that my 11 month old was smaller than all the other babies that were born around the same time my friends had their babies. He still wears 6-9 clothing, and all the other boys are already in at least 12-18 months. The stanger then told me that
his son was on goats milk and that he was also born at 11 pounds(my baby weighed 7.3). When I
mentioned I was going to switch from formula to soy, he almost begged me not to do it. He said that he has studied nutition for some time and has studied the effects of soy given to boy infants to toddler stages has an ingredient that slows the natural male hormone (testosterone) from building to proper levels. I politely told him that I had given my oldest son soy after formula and he oviously turned out fine. It was surley is food for thought. I would apprecieate any and all thoughts.
