    I used Karicare Soy for DS. The only issue was it did give him some constipation but I used to give him a very small amount of watered down prune juice every other day which made everything work fine.

    I use Karicare for my DD who has CMPA. Your doc has probably told you, but just be careful introducing as many babies who have CMPA are also allergic to soy.

    Hi Jessbaby,
    yes my DS1 had CMPA and Soy allergy. Paediatrician won't go to next step without trying soy first. Then we try pepti junior then finally Neocate.

    DS1 went on Neocate at 12 weeks. Just want this science experiment to end

    Oh right so you know what you're doing with this whole allergy thing! I hope your DS isn't allergic to soy, the hypoallergenic formulas I've heard can so hard to introduce! I only tried DD twice on it and she would have a bar of it!

    I tried looking for this, couldn't see any. Will see how we go. So sick of paying $25 for a tin of formula to only use it for a few bottles.
