  • Not true. I raised my daughter on Similac & Enfamil, since the maternity nurses ruined my chances at breast-feeding by feeding my daughter sugar water when I wasn't around. Babies do note the taste change, and that may put them off one milk or another. Just be super-hygenic - scald & clean everything you use. I did. She's 15 now.

  • I've never heard that soy can cause allergies to milk products. I do know that soy products aren't always the best alternative o use though. Switching from Similac to Enfamil shouldn't cause too big of an issue but if you keep switching back and forth it can cause some issues. So if you switch, then make it the last time you switch ever is my recommendation.
