Digesting problem, tummy virus. Can breast milk help?

I have a 2 1/2 yr old shaken baby who is on a g-tube. Who has been having trouble digesting his feed. He is getting better & has seen the doctor & we r slowly increasing his feed back to normal. But he is still digesting extremely slow. They said it was a tummy virus . But we arn t sure. we r switching back & forth from pedialyte to his bright beginings soy formula. But he is still not digesting right. I was wondering if breast milk can help him in any way?
