we had to give our first child soy formula becuase he was not able to digest the regular stuff, our second did not have the problem and we still chose to give him soy formula and then switch him to cow milk at 1yr. he had no problems with it and neither did their ped. heck my little girl (my youngest) gave up formula cold turkey at 8 months no matter what i tried to do, she just woke up one morning and refused to eat babyfood or drink formula. all she would eat was the exact same the rest of us were eating, so that is what we gave her and she never had any problems. she drank about a gallon or so of milk every 3 days once we let her drink regular milk and she still loves it above all else to this day.
