Q.

Soy Milk

My LO is 4 months old. She was on S26 at birth but after a month of giving S26 she had a runny tummy. I took her to he doc and he recommended i change to Infacare Soya milk.

I just need to know if she is getting enough nutrients on from this milk especially calcium. As I have noticed that she is not able to hold her own strength cos I sometimes make her stand and she doesn' t hold herself.

Is there any other milk I could give to her. Or is there any vitamin supplement that I could give her.

Thanks in advance

The Infacare soya formula is fortified with calcium. There is no need to give your baby additional vitamins. She is far too young to be trying to get her to stand.
