Brodee is on formula and has been since day 1...he is very fussy and screams like he is in pain and only goes poop every 2 or 3 days so the doctor decided to try him on SIMILAC SOY formula because it will help with him going potty and should help cut down on his gas and spit up issues...but when i went to WIC to switch the formula around they dont give the SIMILAC SOY they only give the ENFAMIL brand...i dont want to switch him again but i have to go with whatever WIC will give me since we cant afford to buy all the formula... has anyone tried the Enfamil brand? Is SOY still as healthy as normal formula?

I am sorry I can't help because I have never used soy. But you could ask your ped to be sure if you are worried. I hope he feels better with the new formula!

We used Enfamil soy with DD 1. After that we switched her walmart brand soy because of cost.

Enfamil and Similac oh and Nestle are the WORST! If I were you, I'd start the baby on Gerber Good Start. All the rest contain GMO's, you can Google that. My daughter will only drink Gerber Good Start.

Never tried soy. We did use enfamil for DD2 though. DD1 used similac. It wasn't really what I chose. I tried each and that's what they took. They both had gas issues, for that we put some gas relief drops and that worked pretty well for us. Good luck!
