Q.

ISOMIL FORMULA

MY 4 MONTH OLD WAS ON LACTOGEN SINCE HE WAS 6 WEEKS OLD, BUT FOR THE PAST 6 WEEKS HAVE BEEN BATTELING WITH A STUFFY/BLOCKED NOSE. SUNDAY I DECIDED TO TRY A DIFFRENT MILK TO TEST IF IT ISN''T MAYBE THE LACTOGEN CAUSING ALL THE PHLEM. HE HAS BEEN ON IT FOR 4 DAYS NOW AND THERE IS A REMARKABLE DIFFRENCE IN HIS NOSE AND CHEST. HE IS BREATHING LIKE NORMAL AGAIN.
I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOUR OPINION IS ON ISOMIL OR IN GENERAL SOY FORMULA. IS THE RUMORS TRUE ABOUT THE HORMONE INBALANCES IT CAUSES IN BABY BOYS?

There is no evidence that a soya formula such as Isomil has any adverse hormonal effects on male infants.
