Definition of Allergy, soy milk
However, some infants have allergy to both cow milk and soy proteins. These infants require a formula in which the cow milk protein (casein) has been "predigested" and specific amino acids added to provide a formula that can provide proper nutrition.
The decision to utilize one of these specialized formulas should be made in consultation with the infant's pediatrician.
