Homemade Baby Formula

At the turn of the 20th century, if a mother couldn’t nurse her child, a wet nurse was supplied.  If a wet nurse was not available, goat milk was give to the new born infant as goat milk is the closest to mother’s milk.  If a child was sensitive to goat milk, barley water was the next best thing.

I always recommend nursing for a minimum of 6 months.  Sometimes women have trouble producing enough milk.  In this situation, I have herbal tea formulas to increase the quality and quantity of the mother’s milk.  In some cases, if a woman has had breast surgery, nursing may not be an option.  These women ask me for the best formulas available in the market.  Unfortunately, many of them are up to par.

If you are inclined to be an earth mama, here’s a recipe for making homemade baby formula:

  • 2 Cups of Organic grass-fed no hormone cow milk or goat milk
  • 1 Cup of Water
  • 1 Cup of Organic Whey protein or Goat Whey
  • 2 tsp Organic Coconut oil
  • 1 tsp Cold-pressed Organic Olive oil
  • 1 tsp Cold-pressed Sunflower oil
  • ¼ tsp Baby Probiotic Powder
  • ½ tsp Cod liver oil

Although the original cow milk baby formula requires raw milk, it is unsafe and illegal in some states.
