  • my son was BF for 4 months, but then i started to lose my BM, so i started him on milk formula, and wow, he hated it, so i got a free can of the isomil soy, and WOW< he loves it.. and he took right too it, but the funny part, it smells a bit like my breast milk.. LOL go figure ..

  • I used Isomil with all of my children. My oldest daughter was allergic to the Emfamil (sp?) so the dr changed her to the isomil, and ever since then I used it. It seems to be easier on there stomaches.

  • My DD was started on regular similac, but after constipation issues, I switched her to Isomil. She is having a bowel movement every day now, but they are really hard all of a sudden. Her DR told me to start her on some baby pear juice or adult prune. Seems to be working...she is a lil over 2 mos now...

  • my daughter started on bm, did not come in, used similac advanced in hospital and at home until we found out she was allergic to milk switched her to isomil for 2 months then after severe constapation and constant screaming we switched to nestle goodstart..no problems after that except its 26 bucks a can and i finally switched at 6 months to the target brand its the closest and cost half as much
