I breast feed my 1 year old son, but am trying to get him used to drink milk from a cup . He wont drink cow milk by its self, but loves the vanilla soy milk. So I have been mixing them. Do you think soy milk has as much nutrition as cow milk??

My kids had a problem with reg. milk and have been drinking vanilla soymilk for years and they are 14 & 16 and are doing great, never sick, ever...But find out from your pediatrician if it would make you feel more comfortable. I did it without talking to mine but I don't recommend that to anyone since you only know your children's history...

Soy milk can be bad because it mimics estrogen. I know of a 4 year old girl who got a lump in her breast and the dr said it could be from the soy milk. (estrogen can cause cysts.) I would keep trying the milk, but if he won't drink it keep giving him breast milk until he is eating table food well. Then just make sure he gets his 3 dairy servings a day.
