And from what I understand, and please do correrct me here if I'm off the mark, but organic formula is only organic in the sense that the dairy product it uses is obtained from organically farmed cows. It still contains the same messy ingredients, preservatives and chemicals that non-organic formula contains.
And, MT is still very sensitive to cows milk products - he can eat yogurt, but only small amount of cheese. I tried using some regular cows milk formula about a month ago, just 2 oz of it mixed w/his soy formula and WOW it caused lots of digestive issues. So we have to avoid the cows milk.
My biggest concern is that if I stop using formula altogether will he still be getting enough of what he needs? He's not old enough yet to be eating a truly balanced diet and I worry about that.
