    My first was bf and then on soya milk products from 9 months as had cows milk protein allergy. She was fine on it. As long as its calcium enriched. But my dd2 was bf then at 9 months had a milk intolerance ( not allergy) but had to be put on a special ( prescription in the uk) formula from then on as would not tolerate soya milk either. Allergy specialist said its very common- if they won't tolerate one, they won't tolerate the other. But you would just have to trial and error to see. Have u asked a docs advice first? How old is your little one? X

    We have been BF but have supplemented first with Soy based formula but now use goats milk formula which seems to stay down alot better and also tastes nicer!

    His 4 weeks old. My intention was to go on goats milk but it's not in stock at the moment I went to so many different places and wasn't able to get it. I am a huge dairy person love milk shakes etc but when I was pregnant couldn't keep any dairy down so not sure if he isn't able to as well

    Just scroll down to the infant title. Or just do your own research.

    Soy formula is illegal without doctors orders in the UK as far as I am aware.
    Please read up on it. Australia is pretty slow when it comes to these things (look how long it took us to get rid of BPA compared to UK and US)

    Just something to think about so you can make an informed decision.
