My husband and I have been vegetarian for almost three years now and loving it! Now, we have a 10 month old boy who we want to raise to be vegetarian. So far, our lo has gone from drinking breast milk, to soy formula, and now he's on cow's formula. My husband and I drink soy milk.
So... my question is, what do we give our baby once he's a year old? Everyone I've talked to keeps insisting that he has to drink whole milk... But, why? First of all, he's already a very big baby. I don't see why 2% milk would be such a bad thing (if we were to give him cow's milk at all). Secondly, could soy milk be just as good, if not a better option?
