For the past 4 months I’ve been trying to find a formula that my son will not have heavy reactions to. I’ve done Baby’s Only, Weston A price cows/goat/liver and have failed each time. Even diluting the dairy. my son ended up with mucous spewing out of his eyes, nose and a wet cough.
My son decided to stop nursing at almost 11 months. I think his last nurse session was the day before his 1st birthday. Date nights were tough because I had to come back and feed him. I found out by trial and error that he did not react to hemp milk. So I would give him that with some water and maple syrup but after the nursing stopped I felt obliged to find something with all the necessary immune boosters and today I found out how to do it.
Note: I believe that all babies and children should have some form of immune boosting supplements for as long as possible. At age 2, your babies immune system is in tact. So I plan to give this formula to him till age 2 and if he wants to continue I don’t mind.
- I’ve taken the Weston A Price foundation Dairy free formula and added my own ingredients and amounts.
2.5 cups of unsweetened Hemp Milk
2.5 cups of filtered water
4 tablespoons lactose
1 teaspoon of Garden of Life probiotics
1/4 cup homemade liquid whey (if you can get, this step is always a pain for me)
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon unflavored Butter/FCLO (I do not mix in bottle as it sticks to the sides of the bottle, I give separately on a spoon with either raw honey or almond butter)
1 teaspoon unrefined sunflower oil
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon of Gelatin
1 teaspoon of Brewers Yeast/Nutritional Yeast
2 teaspoon of Elderberry syrup (optional)
1 tablespoon of organic Maple syrup
- Mix above ingredients in a blender and serve cold (close to room temp) or warm up. I’ve done both with no issues
