Thanks, Jennifer
I'm wondering the same thing. The butter oil is completely out of my league right now.

When I was deciding whether to buy it, I looked up all I could on butter oil. It takes 8 to 9 pounds of cream to make the 8 ounce jar. I get cream at $10 per quart from my cowshare, so that would be $5 per pound, 9 pounds for $45. (and you could either use the cream or make it into butter). So the butter oil is more expensive. I am buying and making as much butter as I can right now, because this is when the grass is growing fast and the cream is really yellow and good, and then I freeze it to have year round. I think that can substitute for the butter oil, maybe about a tablespoon of good raw grassfed butter for 1/2 tsp of oil. I did end up getting the oil as insurance, since I am working on reversing diabetes, but I don't think it's essential, if you have a good source of grass fed raw butter or cream.

Congratulations!

is vernix related to fat consumption? my week late, 9lb 7oz ds still had vernix on him. i can't say how much, he's my first so i have no comparison. not a ton, more than a dab. i hadn't discovered nt yet but was eating a somewhat similar pregnancy diet.
