I just got a kombucha mama and some kefir grains, but now i'm curious how concerned I have to be? The kefir I'm not too worried about, but the kombucha is supposed to help detox your body-does that mean icky stuff will get in my milk? Thanks!
I'm not positive, but I think you don't go overboard it should be fine. I eat raw yougurt and kombucha (about 12-16 ozs) everyday and I haven't noticed any difference in my milk or my dd <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Just like anything take it slow at first to see what, if anything, happens.
thanks! I'll start off with little amounts and work my way up.<br><br>
speaking of yogurt, i got an awesome starter from the same nice woman on ebay i got my kombucha and kefir from- it's called viili finnish yogurt and it ferments right at room temperature! no more fooling with thermometers and waiting for my milk to get to the right temp-you just dump some in a jar with mil and let it sit on the counter overnight. whoo-hoo! I just thought I would share- maybe it might save other mamas time and annoyances <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> plus the lady is really nice and offers free email support for life. i think her store is called nick's naturals or something like that, but if you just do a search for viili in ebay you should find it.
