  • no whole milk before the baby is 12 months old. and it should be the same if you switch from soy to reg.

  • They switched my daughter to the soy because she spit up everything. It worked for about a month and then they switched her back and she was fine.

  • I would have a milk allergy test done to make sure shes not allergic to regular formula since it contains milk. If you dont have a history for family allergies to milk you can try on your own to see what happens. Sometimes babies systems are so sensitive they are lactose intolerant as a new borns and then they grow out of it. if you question anything talk to your pediatrician.

  • make sure it's not a milk allergy. my daughter is 4 and drinks soy milk. she cannot tolerate dairy. she was on soy formula at 3 weeks old and switching back didn't work.

  • My son was on soy for about 6 months before he went right to whole milk, but he was on soy to help with poop problems, not because he spit up.

  • Are you still making milk? I would suggest trying to nurse her and see if that is easier on her stomach. When my older kids were formula fed, I never had I cannot help much more than that.
