  • i don't know i know they have formula for kids up to 2 yrs which is soy but i don't think soy milk has the nutrients and fats like whole milk that kids need when growing

  • Yes it is ok to give them Silk soy milk or any other brand
    My DD is 2.5 now and has had nothing but that. She is lactose intolerant and she does good on it. Some people believe that soy is better for them anyways (altho since i have not done the research on it I do not claim that). He will probably like it better anyways:)

  • I give my daughter rice milk. but only because she had a milk AND soy protein allergy.. so we just skipped the soy. :-) She should be fine.. We actually had to supplement with some Pediasure so she'd gain weight. IT's what works for us.

  • I do a combo of soy, rice, breast and cow's milk. My daughter gets a tummy ache with too much cow's milk so I like to rotate them around so she isn't get too much of one thing. Moderation is my advice.
