An added problem with the homemade formula focus is that there is no acknowledgment of the potential risk. The risk may be small but it is there and it's our job as mothers to make our own decision. I wrote something at the Ethicurean on this issue: Raw milk information.
We've gone three times and the bones basically disintegrate. If it works for your kitchen schedule I'd go ahead and do it. I just find that the broth can get bitter if left on too long, especially the second and third rounds.
