My first suggestion would be to talk to your doc. That is usually the best route to take. Good Start formula sometimes helps if they are getting constipated with the Isomil. The Good Start brand some how breaks up easier in their tummies then the Isomil does. Good Start does have a soy based formula. Another solution that we used for my son was to put 1 teaspoon of DARK Karo syrup in one of his bottles each day. It takes awhile for it to get through their system, so it will take a few days before you see results. But that kept him regular until we started on solids and could do prunes and prune juice. Again best is to talk to your doc.

Well, is there any particular reason to switch to formula milk? Its always best to exclusively breast feed a baby. There are solutions for increasing milk supply if your milk supply is low.
