    I have too... for one thing formula smells horrid. Breast milk really doesn't have a smell.

    But I tried both milk based formula and soy based... think the brand was enfamil.

    The milk based formula was awful thick and smelly... the soy milk was better... more mild and sweet but still really thick... breastmilk is very sweet and light.

    I have tried both too, breast milk is really sweet and light as Margerle said and formula smelt yucky it was fairly thick compared to breast milk and tasted like horrible sugar water (not sure how to describe it).

    I keep trying to pursuade hubby to try 'boobie juice' but he won't..lol
