Her weight is exactly where it should be. I presume that you also breast feed her in the morning before you go to work.

If the eczema disappeared then it sounds al right to me. You won't believe me my children got snotty noses from the regular milk and when I gave them the Infasoy and they got eszema from the soy, when I stopped it the eczema was gone but now I have snotty children. But just have a listen what the Pead says all children are different.

Yes she had this rash at the back and on her face, so her doc said that it might be eczema and if so i need to stay away from dairy products and fish beacuse they cause this allergy and it faded, then when she started with solids she said she must use infasoy.

Is there a reason why she drinks infasoy. My children put on a lot of weight when they were on infasoy.
