My sons been on soy since I stopped breastfeeding. Every time I give him a piece of cheese or a sip of my milk shake he get the farts and sometimes some cramping. I told this to my Dr but he wants me to make the switch anyway. He says to add an ounce of milk at a time to his soy formula and he'll eventually build up a tolerance. I'm really not in a hurry. Is there a reason I should be? He just turned 1.
Cow milk is for baby cows, and humans don't need it. Like many other nutrients, and despite the claims of the dairy industry, plant based calcium is superior to animal based. While cow mild is rich in protein, the kind of protein that is contains is casein, while human milk protein is lactalbumin, with is easily digestible; more the 50% of casein isn’t digested and can cause health problems later in life, like food allergies.
