This homemade baby formula is a wonderful supplement for mothers unable to breastfeed or needing to supplement. Remember that breastmilk should ALWAYS be the first choice for baby, if possible. This raw milk based formula takes account of the fact that human milk is richer in whey, lactose, vitamin C, niacin, and long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids compared to cow’s milk but leaner in casein (milk protein). The addition of gelatin to cow’s milk formula will make it more digestible for the infant. Use only truly expeller-expressed oils in the formula recipes, otherwise they may lack vitamin E.
