My 6 month old is on similac cholov yisroel and I want to move her to enfamil soy since its more convenient and we can get it on WIC. Is it ok to do that? Like shes tolerating the milk very well bh and to switch her to soy I want to make sure she will be ok with milk after...

No, I don't think it is a good idea to switch a 6-month-old away from real milk to soy milk, if there is not compelling medical reason to do so, like allergy to milk proteins.

Please don't.

It would be better to switch to chalav akum if it is a financial problem.
At the time before chalav israel formula was available, everyone fed chalav akum formula to children, even if the family was makpid on chalav israel. It's not such a big deal. In any case better than taking away milk alltogher.

U can give Enfamil regular or Enfamil gentle ease that's covered by wic. I would not give soy. Ever.

My other child had minor reflux and was spitting up a lot. My Dr said to switch to soy and he did very well with it

WIC only covers enfamil milk and emfamil soy. Not special kinds

I have a kid with extreme milk sensitivity that did really well on soy formula, but we only did it because she couldn't tolerate any dairy formula
