How can people find other options to commercial baby formula and help babies be better nourished?
(common question asked)
Although we recommend breastfeeding primarily, we offer a homemade formula recipe. It was developed by Mary Enig, PhD (in nutritional sciences), co-author of Nourishing Traditions, and has been nourishing babies safely and effectively for 20 years. We recommend it because it’s nutritionally superior to commercial formula.
I do have a recipe here on the Well Nourished Home – check out this link. Here are some other options as well:
On a recent interview on CHD TV with Polly Tommey, Sally Fallon Morell thoroughly explained the value of this homemade formula. https://live.childrenshealthdefense.org/shows/good-morning-chd/KZWH_6NRcx
WAPF actually have two formulas–milk-based and, for those who cannot handle milk, liver-based. Please see their formula page which has the recipes, video, FAQs, testimonials and more: https://www.westonaprice.org/health-topics/childrens-health/formula-homemade-baby-formula/
