Soya Milk Formula

June Huey - posted on 12/26/2009 ( 1 mom has responded )




My doctor recommended my baby to take soya milk formula since cow milk formula has been causing my baby to have eczema. But I have read some articles that soya milk is not good for infants. I tried breastfeeding, but my baby had had breastmilk jaundice when he was about 2 weeks old. If anyone out there has any experience with soya milk, please share. I would like to know more. Thanks!

if you can go back to breastfeeding do should have been encouraged to continue to nurse...juandice is normal and goes away...have you ever tried Parents Choice formula? its not soy and there are different choices...the cheapest in the purple can is mild and well tolerated...perhaps a simple formula will work...perhaps that brand offers a soy...there is a lot of debate about soy and it smells awful so i would avoid if at all possible...your baby gaining wieght is most important...ask your grandparents if they have eczema...i have it and had it bad as a child..i don't know about infant...what i learned was that it is passed on and generally skips a generation...therefore i am not sure that soy will solve anything...
