Homemade Baby “Formula”

  1. krista says:

    @Sally – The formula recipes are carefully designed to provide everything your baby needs. It is fine to combine them as long as you keep all the ingredients and the proportions that are in the recipes. Does that make sense?

    i thot cow milk was bad for babies??

  3. Sally says:

    Also, why regular cod liver oil and not fermented?

  4. Sally says:

    I’m wondering if you know if I could combine the 2 formulas so that it is less dairy? Most of the ingredients are the same except for a few, but I thought I would ask your opinion.

    @Rhiannon Marston: I really don’t know a vegetarian “formula.” You can find sources of raw milk that are NOT a part of the “dairy industry” here: http://www.realmilk.com

    How old is your baby, or at what age do you anticipate weaning?

  6. Hi there,

    First of all, i must say what an inspiring site this is….it echoes so many of my own beliefs!
    I am a breastfeeding mum and i love the idea of home made formula for my baby when i decide to move on from breastfeeding. I wouldn’t dream of using commercial formula because it is so processed and contains fluoride (they really try to dispose of it wherever they can!)
    My family and i are vegetarian and we don’t use animal sourced milk because we don’t want to support the dairy industry. So i was wondering if anyone might know of a plant based recipe for home made formula? (not soya or rice) I know this is a big ask and very particular, but i wondered about maybe almond based milk? I know there are many branded almond milks available, but again they are processed and expensive. Any ideas please???

    I’m currently trialing the liver formula for my 7 month old. We’ve been working on it for close to two months now. She’s had a lot of health issues so it has taken me forever to really dive in and figure out what she can handle. One ingredient at a time – we are almost there!

    Thank you for your article!
