  • Because you are doesn't mean your baby will be. Try breast feeding. If that is not what you want to do or it doesn't work, they have soy based formula now. But I would not start there.

  • just because you're lactose intolerant doesn't mean your child is. my husband is lactose intolerant, i'm not, neither is our daughter. you'll be able to tell if your child is LI. there are tons of different formula's. i use good start.

  • If you mean lactose intolerant then if your going with Enfamil then you'd use the gentlease. They don't really use low iron or no iron formula anymore unless you have a kidney issue.

  • Usually you try the regular first then the gentle version if they have a problem then soy if they still have an issue.

  • Or will my doctor just choose the formula for me? And i thought about choosing good start protect plus.

  • Try to breastfeed.

  • Unless you are on PA, you choose what you buy and give baby. Your Pedi will suggest some if your baby has an issue.

  • Breastmilk is vegan and healthier & safer than formula, would you like to try this?

    Or have you looked into some recipes for using goat's milk?
