Which is better soy based or cow milk infant formula?

Which is better soy based or cow milk infant formula?

Depends on situation: Some folks prefer the bovine protein as more human like & there is some question whether the soy lives up to its quality. That said, most kids would never have any appreciable difference in growth/development either way.The exception comes if a kid is intolerant to one. If so, the other product or a specialty formula like alumentum would be less likely to cause GI symptoms. ...Read more

Is vaping with 0mg nicotine safe while pregnant (To help ease the habit)? The ingredients are: water, propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin,& flavoring

Not recomended: inhaling aerosolized chemicals isnt best for you or for the baby. Vaping is a new product in the market and the effect on lungs/babies are still not fully understood.

Is there a formula milk for babies with out soy based, soy lecithin, soy bean oil?

Is there a formula milk for babies with out soy based, soy lecithin, soy bean oil?

Absolutely: Alimentum and nutramigen are the first two that are readily available that come to mind. They are a bit more expensive, but very easy to digest and no soy anything. They don't taste as good, so if the baby scoffs at eating them, can put one drop of vanilla in the entire bottle to flavor. ...Read more

Isit healthier to feed kids oatmeal everyday with guar gum or evaporated cane juice? Does all ecjuice contain sucralose or has to be listed ingredient

Isit healthier to feed kids oatmeal everyday with guar gum or evaporated cane juice? Does all ecjuice contain sucralose or has to be listed ingredient

Oatmeal: Why put anything in the oatmeal? It is a great food by itself. Complex carbs, fiber, some protein. The guar just adds extra fiber, and the juice is a sweetener. If you need a sweetener for taste, that is your choice, and it should not matter whether it is fruit juice, sugar, honey, etc. I would avoid artificial sweeteners in kids. The calories from a little honey is minimal. ...Read more
