cow, soy, almond, rice... headache...

we suspect that olivia is lactose intolerant. since birth she has been on special formula and soy formulas for colic. recently after her first birthday we switched her to cows milk only to have a fussy, gassy and, well, poopy baby on our hands.

our pediatrician recommends we switch her back to a soy milk but i am having some hesitations. i've heard too many bad things between the soy and estrogen relation that i am worried about blindly going back to soy without doing my research.

i did find an article from the la times that i found interesting and thought i'd share it HERE mainly as a place to bookmark it for myself but hopefully it may be a resource to you as well. and HERE is a graphic breaking down the nutrients in all of the milk options.
