Wow, 2 days during naps to read 32 pages and take notes! What an awesome thread, so much valuable info
We've been stopping and starting and um, stopping
our transition to NT/TF.
I have horrible teeth and it appears DS does as well. We're back to giving him HVCLO (yay he takes it off a spoon!) but money is too tight right now to pay for BO. He's a very picky eater, so diet alone is going to be difficult. He only really eats bread, pasta, cheese pizza (and often not the cheese!), hummus, yogurt, berries and bananas, but will drink raw milk smoothies.
So here's what we're going to do:
*We already use tooth soap & will buy some xylitol & spry mints
*3 daily 1/2tsp servings of HVCLO
*pastured butter & BO when we can afford it again - he will eat it on toast
*raw milk smoothies w/ a raw egg yolk, CO, probiotic and added L. Reuteri
*pastured eggs if available (do organic omega 3 eggs count?
- we don't have a local source, just Whole Foods)
*completely cutting out honey, though we try to use raw honey as much as possible
*he only drinks water
*bone broths - if he will drink them. About the only thing he may eat is mashed potatoes w/ bone broth in them
*calc. phos 30C - 5 pills 3x daily
Any other recommendations for me? I'm hoping he'll start to try more foods but until then...
I haven't bought Natural Calm yet, but is it safe to give to him (he'll be 3 in April)?

Thanks for much.
We're in the SCV... You can get Organic Pastures raw milk from many health food stores - Whole Foods and Lassens are two of the bigger ones, and often they carry raw butter and cream as well. Or order direct from www.organicpastures.com
. You may have other more local sources, too... go to www.realmilk.com
