Dairy free Baby Formula

image.jpgFor 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. 

 

Ingredients:

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 non-GMO acerola powder or raw vitamin C

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

 

 

 

About Britt's Health Tips

Started running at age 9 and always loved learning about nutrition and health. When I was 17 years old, 30lbs over weight and diagnosed with hypo-thyroidism I decided to heal myself through diet and exercise. Having fully recovered from that and having three children I have learned how to effectively heal my children through diet. I decided through pressure from friends to document my success on a blog and here I am. 2018 will be a big year for me. I hope to be well on my way to finishing my degree in Pediatric Nutrition.
