  • TAG : Here's what you need to know about infant formula.
  • Even though around 25 percent of formula-fed American babies take some form of soy formula, we recommend that parents begin their baby on a standard cow’s milk-based formula unless advised otherwise by their doctor. Soy formulas became popular as an alternative formula in infants who are allergic to cow’s milk. Some babies are less allergic to the soy protein than to cow’s milk protein. Yet, we have the following reservations about soy formulas:

    The Baby’s Only Kosher formula has soybean oil in it, so if your going for soy free this one does not fit the bill…I’m trying in vain to find something for my friends baby and the other one you talked about was the Earths Best and its $37.00!!! But at least it doesn’t have soy in it.

  • Manufacturers state that the composition of infant formula is designed to be roughly based on a human mother's milk at approximately one to three months postpartum; however, there are significant differences in the nutrient content of these products. The most commonly used infant formulas contain purified cow's milk and as a source, a blend of as a fat source, as a source, a -mineral mix, and other ingredients depending on the manufacturer. In addition, there are infant formulas using soybean as a protein source in place of cow's milk (mostly in the United States and Great Britain) and formulas using protein hydrolysed into its component amino acids for infants who are allergic to other proteins. An upswing in in many countries has been accompanied by a deferment in the average age of introduction of (including cow's milk), resulting in both increased breastfeeding and increased use of infant formula between the ages of 3- and 12-months.

    Yes it is a very sad state of affairs that we cant even get a good clean baby formula without Soy Bean by products in it Having just finished a study on this exact topic I can tell you that research has proven it to reduce and tamper with boys testosterone levels and correct puberty functions as they grow up. And with girls it can cause onset early puberty and faster development then normal – My daughter has Double D these days and she didnt get it form me. Sadly I didnt know this when she was little and I used Soy Formula. Of course this isn’t necessarily a bad thing for girls (although she ahtes them being so big) but we dont want our boys having massive amounts of dangerous estrogeons into them when so little. The reason why tofu, miso and the old fashioned Asian style soy is safe is because its been fermented which alters the consititution of the food and in small amounts perfectly safe. However there is an old japanese wives tale that they fed there husbands lots of Soy if they thought they were cheating on them to reduce there libido. My Sister just had a baby boy and I am on the look out for a Non Soy Formula which is how I found this page. we all need to speak up and do something about this outrage. Nestle is the biggest manufacturer of Soy products so they will always tell you its safe and they have funded the research in the past which is what gets passed on to the doctors. and the Asian cultures only used Soy fermented never in baby formula products. It actually comes with huge warnings in many eurpoean countries already. we need to speak up – as parenting is tough enough without this guilt as well.

  • "Soy is a widespread ingredient in many food products and 25 percent of infant formulas are soy based, so this is something that needs to be studied," commented Westmark - who noted that the results of the study do not mean that autistic children who eat soy-based formula are going to develop seizures, and that the vast majority of infants in both dietary groups did not have seizures.

    Pediatricians are noticing greater numbers of boys whose physical maturation is delayed, or does not occur at all, including lack of development of the sexual organs. Learning disabilities, especially in male children, have reached epidemic proportions. Soy infant feeding-which floods the bloodstream with female hormones that could inhibit the effects of male hormones-cannot be ignored as a possible cause for these tragic developments.

    Other problems that have been anecdotally associated with children of both sexes who were fed soy-based formula include extreme emotional behavior, asthma, immune system problems, pituitary insufficiency, thyroid disorders and irritable bowel syndrome.

    Two studies by University of Illinois food science and human nutrition professor Sharon Donovan show that the soy isoflavone genistein, in amounts present in commercial soy infant formulas, may inhibit intestinal cell growth in babies.

    Donovan said it's an important question to ask because almost 25 percent of formula-fed babies in the United States consume soy formula. Although babies on soy formula appear to grow normally, these formulas contain very high concentrations of genistein, from 32 to 45 milligrams, which is higher than the amount found to affect menstrual cycles in women, she said.
