Q.

Carton soya milk

My baby is 14 months old, and has been on Isomil since 5 months, due to a slight allergy. I saw today in Pick n Pay that you get Soya milk in a carton. Do you think I can give that to him instead of Isomil. He has a very balanced diet.

Change to the soya milk in cartons once your son is 15 months old. If the soya milk is not fortified with calcium you will need to give your son extra calcium.
