In our experience, soy formula is not healthier or better for a baby than regular formula unless the child is lactose intolerant or has other problems with milk and milk-based products. Unless the child needs an alternative to milk, then this soy formula is not worth more money. Easily Digested Our babies have never had any problems digesting this formula, but it also does not seem any easier than other regular formulas. Ease of Preparation This formula only requires mixing powder with water in a bottle, which is relatively simple. One small downside is that the formula is extremely sticky, so it's easy to have a little bit of formula stick to the top of the bottle when pouring into the bottle. Once that happens, the stuck formula will not mix with the rest. One very positive thing about this particular container is the clip in the lid that holds the scoop. It keeps the scoop from getting buried in shipment.
