I have low milk supply and though my milk can't taste more like fenugreek, I just can't produce enough. So we had to supplement with formula. I did alimentum formula to start, to have a grip on the issue of allergies though I don't know if dd actually has any allergies. Well, she's smart and has good taste and after a few spoonfuls of avocado she's not taking her formula too well.
I found a raw cows milk dairy down the street and am able to pick some up today. I have the WAP recipe and I'll need to do a modification of it (I don't have all the oils but will go to Whole Foods today to get as much as I can).
How would you offer it to your child? Would you just switch bottles and go right to the homemade formula, would you slowly transition 1/4 homemade mixed into current formula, then a day later, 1/2 homemade mixed in, then the next day 3/4 homemade, etc.?
I just think the homemade, which I've been thinking about for a few weeks, would be better for dd, heal some of my sadness for not being able to make my own milk, and would taste better to dd.
Your thoughts on issues of allergies or poor initial reactions or anything else you can think of/have had experience with?
Thank you mamas!!!!!!!!
