Does anyone know the advantages to using soy based formula as oppose to a milk based formula? My son is 10 weeks old and we are having issue with gassiness and some people have told me to try soy formula. Just recently we had an episode of really bad diarrhea and he had to be put on a special formula for 48 hours that helped to get rid of the issues. It helped out with the diarrhea along with the gas, come to find out it was soy based. I'm not sure if it is something I should just try or if you should only go that route if it is absolutely needed. I'm also concerned about the transition from soy formula to whole milk, will he continue to be on soy milk after 1 year of age?
