Anyone here have a boy and fed his soy formula?
My DS's Dr. is completely against giving him soy formula due to the phytoestrogens in it and has stated that she won't treat him anymore if I choose to give it to him.
He is allergic to milk based formulas and the only other option is a hypoallergenic formula like Nutramigen which is HELLA expensive. I will pay whatever it is if it means a happy healthy baby, but I just don't get why soy is so bad. Everyone in my family needed soy formulas because of lactose intollerances and a few on hubbys side did too, we are all alive and healthy. I just don't get it.
Any input or first hand experience with this?
Do I just need to get a new Dr.?
Thanks in advance.
ETA: I have made an interview appointment with a new pedi in a new group for 3/14. I am so sick of this Dr.
