Infant soy formula has been available since 1929,1 and up to 36% of infants consume it in their first year.1,2 Like other soyfoods,3 it contains high levels of isoflavones,4 a class of phytoestrogens whose actions may reduce breast cancer risk




This is what I found about soy and breast cancer. Everything I have read said it reduces the risk of breast cancer.

Interesting. I have not seen it used in ages but just remembered it from being in nursing homes and such.

Really? Here they give it to babies from newborn but only if a hospital pedi recommends it first, not a gp. My daughter had severe reflux from birth, on the day we were being discharged the pedi came to examine her. She vomited all over him and he just said: give her gaviscon in her bottles. I asked him: what, now??? He said yes, now but only half a sachet till she weighs over 10lbs. It only helped a little bit though. She also had Zantac, she's turning one on Saturday. Ill be bringing her to the doc next week to see about taking her off it soon. Her reflux is just about gone.

I usually get more information from a pharmacist than a doctor. I go to them with 90% of my medication questions directly.

Yes! Some pharmacists are great and will answer any questions you have. The guy I go to is a fountain of knowledge lol I've often asked him stuff I might feel awkward or stupid asking my doc!

DS had severe silent reflux from day 1. he had gaviscon at 5 months and it didnt do anything, they told me not to put it in a bottle but to syringe it because if you put it in formula it wont work. it didnt work anyway, he got put on losec a couple weeks later and a week after that was a different baby, i weaned him off losec about a month ago, without speaking to a doc/pedi he is doing great without it and will be 1 next week.

Thick it or simply thick? I researched before giving either to my son for his dyspaghia and came across a lot of risks associated with simply thick. Not with thick it, he's been off thickened feeds/drinks for almost a year now, so info could be new.

Doctors don't know drugs like they do. They try their best but that's not what they are schooled for like a pharmacist.

Yeah, I just googled and there is nothing on risks for babies who use Thick It 1 or 2, the ingredients are food starch and malodextrin.



The brand that has caused deaths is SimplyThick. The active ingredient is xanthan gum, and is used to treat constipation problems among other things. The brand ThickenUp also uses xanthan gum and other ingredients. I would avoid those two for sure.

She told me that it doesn't hurt them but it bothers them the creeping up feeling of it going up their throat... I do want to fix that, but I don't want him on rice yet.

Quoting snglemama:" different doctor otherwise, Gripe water, or probiotics"


The doctor he normally sees was not in that day... I didn't like her response for reflux.

If the childs stomach acids are coming up when the child throws up from reflux it can burn their esophagus. So yeah it will bother them, especially in the long run.
