This kit really made it easy to have all the things we need to make the formula. I really appreciate the quality ingredients and the fast shipping with careful packaging. So far it has been a smooth transition with cutting back on breast milk and using the formula for our six month old.
This is beyond a blessing. That junk Enfamil made my daughter scream and cry with every poop. I'm firmly convinced that store bought formula is junk. This formula has returned her poop to exclusively breastfed consistency and no more constipation. I would recommend this to any parent in need it has truly been a blessing in our life!
I could not produce enough milk for my twins. I was unhappy with the commercial baby formula and the organics one were expensive and yet they were not the best option for me. Through the Weston A Price Foundation found this recipe. My pediatrician was very open to this homemade baby formula, although she asked some question and why I was switching to the this option. My twins flourished amazingly. They always were very healthy babies and they grown up as very strong toddlers. Thank you for providing us a healthy option!
