My daughter has stinky feet. The weird part is that she had one foot that smells worse than the other one. She's still on soy formula (I've been gradually switching her over to milk-based formula). I wash them every time I change her diaper. I asked my pediatrician andher said "these things happen" and didn't seem too concerned. I'm wondering if it's the soy?

My son who is 6 months old has stinky feet,I think its all just natural that there sweating through there glands just as u and I would from activity and there feet being enclosed...if its truly a great big concern contact ur doctor.....my son gets the biggest kick when u sniff his feet and tell him he has stinky feet...after a couple of times he keeps lifting his feet up so u will continue to do this game...


sorry to hear about ur experience with the dr.,better luck with a new one...



My daughter loves that game too...makes her giggle like crazy!






I did ask her pediatrician on our last visit and his response was "these things happen" and went back to writing in her chart. I asked if it was possible that it was the soy and he just started at me?? Suffice to say that I am now actively looking for a new Dr. which is very challenging in my area. I live in a major city that is experiencing a severe shortage of pediatricians and OBs.

Our girl's feet are stinky too! She is on Enfamil Lipil, so I agree that it doesn't seem to have a formula connection. I love that we mommies know every little smell on our babies LOL!

my daughter's feet are a little stinky and she is breastfed and formula fed. i notice that in between her toes there are "fuzzies" that accumulate and a lot of times that is what is making the stink. i use a cotton swab in between her toes and sometimes that helps. i'm glad to see she is not the only one too!! :)

Good to know she's not the only baby with smelly feet. It definately doesn't stop her from constantly putting them in her mouth.

My girl has stinky feet when she wears socks for a long period of time...call me weird but I love it!! It's just a part of her. I also remember my son's feet smelling like that too when he was a baby.

My little lady has extremely stinky feet!!! We think it's funny! I breastfeed her so I don't think it's your formula as we don't use any type of formula. I think it's just a baby thing!

My daughter has stinky feet too. She's on Enfamil Nutramigen which is a hypo-allergenic formula. No idea if there's a connection.
