  • soy formula is not the best for your baby unless lactose intolerant...It causes premature hormonal growth...theres a new study u should look it up

  • I've been having the same problem but never even associated it with his formula. Am I an idiot? He's on soy b/c he's had some skin problems and the MD recommended I take him off milk-based formulas. Hmmmm.

  • Soy causes really bad constipation if you have other formula choices like a lactose free or something I would change (based on your other post on your daughters constipation)

  • my dd was very consipated on soy, her dr. said all milk free formulas can cause constipation, except the ones with probiotics (the new nutramigen) and maybe good start. I could hear her grunt across the room trying to poo, and it was hard and small. he told me to do the karo syrup thing, and I did every few days. I feel like she did better on soy than she is right now on the new nutramigen...but oh well. Check with your doctor to see what you can do. but soy is notorious for constipation!
