Soy formula is based on soy. Regular formula is based on cow milk.

The proteins with in Milk-based formulas can be harder for some babies digestive systems to break down, where soy is a much simpler and gentler protein. I have my daughter on soy and she has done terrific, also I have several other friends that use it for that same purpose. Maybe just run it by your doc, but it's not going to hurt to try.

You should definately consult your pediatrician before you switch to a soy based formula as your baby could be allergic to it.

She may also have colic, if so try Gripe Water.

ambertane, before you switch to soy, do your research and ask your dr. first. babies shouldn't use soy unless the dr. says so. soy is very binding and is too hard on babies systems. It will be a book if I get into it but please talk to your dr first.
