What a HUGE BLESSING it was to this Mama to discover the homemade formula recipe and then find out Radiant Life provides the kit to assemble the formula! After having lots of difficulty breastfeeding and watching my daughter steadily decline and lose weight, I began to experiment with store bought formulas (Gerber, EnFamil). My baby was starting to put on weight, but had bad gas, constipation, spit up a lot, and still cried every 2 hours wanting to feed. I had originally ordered Holle formula from Germany and that was wonderful, but it is pricey and takes a while to ship so I knew that would not be a permanent option for me. After much researched, I discovered this formula recipe (using raw cows milk) and decided to give it a try. I was elated to find Radiant Life's website and that they sell complete kits to assemble the formula while using the highest quality of ingredients! I feel sooo good about what I am putting in my baby's little tummy as I know exactly every ingredient that went into making her formula! Since starting her on this formula, we have said goodbye to fussiness, excessive gas, runny green stool, and frequent feedings. She is absolutely thriving and happy! I never knew what a satisfied, content baby was until now.
I was at a loss when I realize I could not produce enough milk for my son. I was scared with little choices until I came across this recipe and information. I finally felt empowered that I was able to still give my son the best nutrition possible outside of breast milk. At first it was scary to make this product and give to my son because no one I knew even knew about this option. My doctors were shocked I was even doing this. However, my son flourished amazingly. He was a very healthy baby, no colic or gas issues and has grown into a strong toddler. I fed him this formula for 4 years. Thank you for providing us a healthy option!
WeI couldn't not be happier, our 10 month old has been using this recipe since she was 3 weeks! Chubby healthy happy girl. She weighs 24 pounds, she beautiful she has a nice healthy glow you will never see in a baby feed from a can. We are extremely thankful for the WAP foundation & Sally
