I have an 18 month old and he drinks soy milk on occasion but I noticed that all the flakes in the soy milk (I'm assuming they are the added nutrients?) settle to the bottom of his sippy cup even after I shake it up so I'm worried he's not getting what he needs. My son loves cows milk but he drinks the soy with the same gusto.<br><br><br><br>
My question (sorry for being long winded) is does anyone have a suggestion for a soy milk that is not flaky and has the nutrition for my baby?<br><br><br><br>
I really want to stop buying milk.<br><br>
I also have an 8 and a 16 year old. The 8 year old is not a big milk drinker but my 16 year old is...switching to soy for him is going to be a challenge.<br><br><br><br>
I apologize if this has been addressed before.<br><br><br><br>
Namaste,<br><br>
Jen

What brand are you using? Silk soymilk doesn't do that, as far as I know.</div>

I just got back from the store and I bought some silk. I use the silk creamer for my coffee so I thought I'd try their soymilk...thanks!

i don't have any knowledge about this. but i've noticed on the container, not to be used as infant formula. does anyone know why infants shouldn't have it? i don't have children, but it may be beneficial to those here that do.

My daughter has alwasy drank Silk or even the store brands without that problem. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
I love Silk Enhanced and when I first started drinking soy milk myself I didn't like it but have grown to love it. I find the "plain" ones taste better, atleast to me they do.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Or the older kids might like rice or almond milk too.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
My daughters been on soy milk since a year. She will not even drink cows milk and recently she was offered Lactaid which is lactose free(the reason she was origionally put on soy) she wouldn't drink it because she does not like the taste of cows milk at all and I don't blame her. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Because I believe it doesn't have a proper balance for an infant NOT eating solids that provide the balance. Thats my understanding anyway.<br><br><br><br>
Soy formulas should be used assuming not nursing exclusively or using cows. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> So that they get proper calories and nutrients. I think its a lot to do with calories but I'm not certain.

^^^I think you are right^^^. Infants who are not breastfeeding would be on some kind of formula, usually to around the age of 12 months before going to regular cows milk. So a soy infant formula would be ok, but soymilk would not have the necessary nutrients that a growing baby needs. Two of my children couldn't drink the formulas with cow's milk/protein so they were both on soy formula. And that was thirty years ago!
