If so what do you use for the vitamins and minerals you need to add? My son doesn't care for formula, and doesn't care to nurse much, he just wants mostly people food, water, a bit of other things to drink, and I want to give him some added vitamins and minerals to be sure he's getting enough.

I didn't even know you could make your own formula? Isn't that dangerous?

Try and see if he will drink goats milk.

Why would it be dangerous? better than store bought, you know exactly what is in it.

He eats plenty, and will drink plenty, I just worry about the added vitamins. Are those vitamins in goats milk?

If you put to many vitamins in they can be harmful. I trust formula. I don't really have concerns about it the standards are set very high

The ingredients are listed on the package. It's not like it's some mystery powder that no one knows anything about, haha.

I've read on here before that goats milk can be a breast milk supplement type instead of formula.



Not 100% though.

I don't really use it, he's breastfed. But LOTS of people make their own formula and their kid's are fine. I am just asking about vitamins, I don't plan on making formula. But if if I did, I would make it if I chose to.

I've also heard this. I've been told it is the next best thing to breast milk.

Oh I know. He's had it. I'm not against it. Just saying a lot of people make their own. I'm just wanting to know what type of vitamins they use in it lol

Ease up. No need for capitals. I just simply stated I didn't know you could make it and was curious as to whether it was dangerous to do so.

I'm on my phone so I can't link but google dr sears goat milk formula. He has a recipe somewhere in cyberspace I've seen before.
