My son is currently on Enfamil Soy (Prosobee) and he's done wonderful so far aside from clumped poop (constipation). The cost is a bit heavy and I've always wondered whether store brands like Up & UP and Parent's Choice work just as well. My son's pediatrician says that the ingredients should be the same before we use it, but I've noticed that the generic brands have the same ingredients, but I don't know about how much. For example, Enfamil has 26% vegetable oil, but Similac uses less I think. The generics say nothing in regards to how much of each ingredient is in the formula.
I worry since my son spent his newborn days in a bad mood when awake and even having crying episodes lasting hours after bowel movements. After the GI put him on Soy, he now cries once every 2-3 days just for his bottle or when he wants to sleep. I'm just afraid of hurting his tummy by trying to save a few $$s. I'm curious to know what your children's doctors have said regarding this or any mom who has a sensitive baby and is using generic.
Same goes for diapers. Do all babies tolerate diapers the same?
My son is 4 months old.
