If you’re having difficulty finding formula for your baby, try this homemade version! It makes a lot, so be prepared to store it.
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, so consuming amino acids saves the requirement to digest proteins before they can be assimilated. This is easier on a new digestive system.
An infant’s primary nutrition needs are healthy fats (to support brain, nervous system, and skin growth), and a variety of probiotics to establish a healthy digestive system and a healthy immune system.

Recipe adapted from Joy King: “I am breastfeeding and am pregnant, and so I was searching for a breast milk replacement. What a journey it has been. I finally came up with a replacement that has worked wonderful for my little girl… This makes a large batch, enough that lasts me for about 5-6 days for my little girl. It takes about an hour to juice everything, wash everything up, and bottle it. We call it ‘Operation Carrot Milk!'” CLICK HERE
