Damaris at Kitchen Corners has an awesome recipe for homemade infant formula and so does Lindsay over at Passionate Homemaker with her Natural Goat’s Milk Formula. To make my baby formula, I mixed the two of them together, tweaked things around, and created a formula that helps feed “little-miss-hungry” when breastfeeding was no longer an option.
- 2 cups goat milk
- 2 cups water
- 1 1/2 tsp blackstrap molasses
- 1 tsp infant probiotics
- 2 tsp organic maple syrup
- 1 tsp sunflower oil
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp nutritional yeast
Combine ingredients in a mason jar and stir with a wooden spoon. Just FYI, the formula only last for 24 hours in the refrigerator. I can now make this formula with a baby on the hip and a toddler hanging off my ankle. Its pretty simple once you get the hang of it.
I also supplement with Dr. Christopher’s KID-eMins, Barlean’s O-mega Oil, and a DHA vitamin drop. Because baby girl’s favorite food is packed with vitamin C, I didn’t worry so much about adding the acerola powder.
One thing is for certain: little girl loves this formula.
