  • When I switched my baby it was because I had to, and I just did it. I went from a dairy bottle to a soy bottle and never back.

  • want to? Or need to? If it's need to then talk to her doctor and s/he'll tell you how to do it. If it's want to then you need to seriously think about why on earth you're changing your child's formula with it's working just fine(if it's not working then that would fall into the need to).

  • You shouldn't unless you have to. Soy is the last resort of all formulas. It's acts like estrogen in the body and it's a widely believed theory that soy is why girls are hitting puberty earlier.

    Even my parents cattle vet said not to give them soy for the same reason.
