My son is on Wysoy, but it's not agreeing with him so we're now looking at perhaps a gluten/wheat intolerance. He wasn't born with it, he was breastfed until he was 9 months old. It only started after a course of antibiotics for a chest infection - so don't beat yourself up about it. It can happen to anyone.
Just wanted to say though about the infertility. I have a consultant dietician looking after us, and he confirmed that, although, yes, if you had a room of 100 men and tested their hormone levels, you would be able to tell which one had been brought up on soya milk - but ONLY if they had been taking it from birth and it doesn't necessarily cause any infertility, it's just a noticeable difference in hormone levels. He said, it's hardly worth mentioning, but they are bound by informing parents, even though it's minimal.

It can convince you of anything! And I totally agree nobody will have a go re bf! Go speak to your health visitor and also your gp and get their take on things, also share with them what youve learned so they can put your mind at ease xx
This is a very old thread but seeig as there are some more recent comments...
My son has both dairy and soya allergies. Apparently most babies who can't have milk also can't have soya so I would remove that before the wheat/gluten aspect.
is a good site to give advice on this.
It is oestrogen that is contained in soya, but this is at very small level and would not pose an implication untl, puberty, and then would have to be in far greater levels than that found in soya milk alone. In addition, oestrogen is a hormone and hormones are made of proteins, proteins are denatured by the treatment process that is used to dehyrate the product. Do make sure that you brush babies teeth when they come through, as soya milk contains, non-milk extrinsic sugars that can rot the teeth if not brushed adequately, but only to the same degree that fruit can damage the teeth. If your baby is happy be happy and know that by removing the dairy at an early stage you are actually giving the gut a chance to reduce it's sensitivity to dairy meaning that you are more likely to be able to introduce it agan at a later date, therefor reducing the soya contents of the diet. x
Hi, I was told yesterday by a paed consultant that they think my 19 week old daughter has a cows milk intolerence. We have been put on SMA Wysoy. The Dr said if anyone mentioned about infertility she said don't worry its old stuff and theres new thoughts about it out now.
I too was unable to breast feed as i didn't produce any breast milk, i tried and tried and tried as i was desperate but couldn't and people do judge but as long as your reasons suit you and your family thats all that matters. Good luck x
Dear Readers,I know that I am a few months behind, but your post came to my attention and I've written this blog post about my experience. I was lactose intolerant as a baby, and I was given SMA Wysoy which caused me to go into puberty early, and caused several problems which still affect me 24 years later. I have written extensively about my experience here: http://wp.me/p1k0wC-6l
I hope this helps some of you to at least become aware of some of the things that can happen when a child is given high doses of soya milk in infancy.
we were on nutramiggen and swopping to wysoy due to `weaned 1 yr old hating smell
