if you breastfed past 1 year, when did you introduce other milks like soy, almond, coconut?
did you give them as a drink, put them in food? cereals? oatmeal?

we introduced soy milk around a year or a little later. we gave it to her if i did not pump enough milk, i was having a hard time at work meeting her needs and it was really stressful for me. i continued to pump until she was 19 months old, but i stressed less and did not pump at home anymore.

thankfully, i dont need to pump right now. we're not vegan, but i dont want to always use cow's milk when i make him hot cereals, oats, etc.
i want him to drink a variety of milks and not just cow's milk all of the time.

no reason not to switch it up i like soy and almond the best. rice is good, but really sweet. coconut is good, but i find the others are more nutritious.

my mother in law is allergic to almonds, so i have to put them off a while, unfortunately. i love almond milk too.
did your daughter have any issues with tummy and adjusting to the soy milk at all?
carlos had soy formula when he was in the NICU and a couple of times the first week of his life when they were telling me his weight needed to increase (he barely ate at all for the first 3-4 days and he lost more than 10%)...i always feared that was going to make him have a soy allergy.

no i never remember her having any issues with the soy milk, but i have heard that there is some connection to soy formula and soy allergies. i think any of the milks are fine, but i would put a little flax oil in them to give them some fat.

we didn't want to give him regular formula because my husband has lactose issues...so far carlos has been ok with cheese, but we'll see. i'm holding off on cow's milk.
anyway, i'll have to look up what soy allergy symptoms are so i can keep an eye out for it. he had a few bites of muesli with soy milk the other morning and nothing drastic happened. we'll see how it goes!

i also think a lot of things you see with newborns, they outgrow as their digestive system develops, especially after 6 months of age.
