We have been using a modified version of the Meyenberg formula recipe found at http://www.askdrsears.com/html/3/t032401.asp with good outcome. No more eczema and a happier baby.
12 oz Meyenberg evaporated goats milk
24 oz filtered water
1 ml Poly Visol with iron
1 ml Nordic Naturals Baby's DHA
1 scoop Solaray BabyLife probiotics
1 tsp organic coconut oil
2 tsp virgin olive oil
2 TBS Rice syrup
3 TBS Lactose sugar
If your baby is lactose intolerant, you can use 5 TBS Rice syrup per the original recipe.
My thoughts on the controversy about goats milk for infants...
Pediatricians should certainly be involved in any decision to change formulas; however, your doctor does not have the "live-with" insight to your baby that you have. If you have tried other formulas under their supervision and your baby continues to have eczema or significant digestive issues, trying this will be no different that trying the other formulas. If the response is positive like it was for us, the nutritional content of this recipe is is comparable to breast milk and formula. Be sure to use goats milk which is fortified with folic acid. Folic acid is critical for the development of red blood cells.
Some parents and doctors may tell you that your baby will outgrow their allergy and that mild to moderate chronic runny noses, eczema, and/or digestive issues will resolve as the baby's ability to digest and handle the proteins improves. However, I am concerned about repeatedly introducing a known allergen into their systems. This sets up an immune response that stresses their system even if the symptoms are considered "mild". Remember, these same pediatricians will tell you to only introduce one new food at a time and if they react, don't try again for several weeks.
Keep in mind, every baby is different, and goats milk formula may not be tolerated any better than the others you have tried. It worked for us.
If your baby is just fussy but doesn't have outward symptoms of allergy like rash or congestion or digestive problems, I still think it's worth a try.
I broke this recipe down by nutritional content (fat/carb/protein per oz) and compared it to breast milk and formula; if you are interested in a copy, I don't mind sharing.
I'm not a doctor. I am a nurse, a mom, and a grandma.
