Hi everyone, new McDougaller here. =) I have a question regarding babies and soy milk.. I have read somewhere that soy formula is not advised, and there was some information about phyto estrogens interferring with reproduction areas if they were introduced in males. I have looked at phyto estrogens and so far I do not see any dangers in it, at least according to the research that I have seen, it actually helps prevent cancers and normal estrogens to attach.
My question is, the child in question is about 12 months years old, and has stopped drinking cows milk and have substituted it with soy milk. I reccomended also to them to use rice milk and oat milk, the child enjoys soy yogurts a lot. Is the soy milk going to be be harmful for the child? I do not want to do something that is wrong and I will feel responsible if something goes wrong because of it. I don`t think there will be any complications, especially since the dairy have been eliminated.
Anyway, happy to be here and I should let you know that I have lost about 6 kilos already, and I think a few inches around the waist, doing some weight training so I`m gaining muscle mass, so weight loss wont be accurate.
