    Back years (and years and years----) ago when I was a kid, they used

    Kyro syrup and something else diluted with water.

    Apart from the pre-made stuff ... (you know, breast milk) - I have never

    heard of it either. What did they feed the babies in the old days? When

    was this "formula" idea invented? Curious now.......

    Homemade baby formula was Evaporated milk, Kayro syrup and water. I'm not sure the exact amounts of each.
    I do know that is the formula that my mom gave me when I was a baby.It was very popular at that time.

    My DH drank PET brand milk as a baby as he was intolerant to all of the formulas available in 1963-64.

    I thought I read an article in my local paper about how this should not be done (or maybe it was don't do it for long periods of time), but couldn't find it so maybe I'm forgetting something.
    Here are some links w/more info about DIY baby formula & safe commercial formulas:http://www.wholesomebabyfood.com/hom...antformula.htmhttp://www.ewg.org/babysafehttp://www.ehow.com/how_2227576_save...y-formula.html<br class="webkit-block-placeholder"><div apple="true"> Obviously, "breast is best" but if you can't make sure you are providing your child with an infant formula that is not out of date.
    Thanks,Stephanie

    Here are recipes from the book "Nourishing Traditions". If there was some reason I couldn't breastfeed, this is definantly what I would use. Your baby is worth it. The first food that it eats will effect it the rest of it's life.

    Milk-Based Formula

    2 cups organic, certified clean raw milk, preferably from pasture-fed Jersey or Guernsey cows

    1/4 cup homeade liquid whey

    4Tbsp. lactose

    1/4 tsp. bifodobacterium infantis

    2 Tbsp. good quality cream

    1/2 tsp. high vitamin or 1 tsp regular cod liver oil

    1 tsp. unrefined sunflowr oil

    1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil

    2 tsp. cocnut oil

    2 tsp. nutritional yeast

    2 tsp. gelatin

    1 7/8 cups filtered water

    1/4 tsp acerola powder

    Add gelatin to water and heat gently until gelatin is dissolved. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend well. Transfer to a very clean glass or stainless steel container and mix well

    To serve: pour 6-8 oz. into a very clean glass bottle, attach nipple and set in a pan of simmering water. Heat until warm but not hot to the touch.shake bottle well and feed baby. NEVER, NEVER heat formula in a microwave.

    The book has the sources from some of the odder looking ingredients.

    Hope this helps!

    My mother was born in 1925. Her mother died when she was two weeks old. They fed her goat's milk. Even bought a goat for the job. They would milk the goat directly into her bottle. Since they would feed her whilst milking, the goat got to where she would come running whenever she heard my mother cry. :O)

    The milk seemed to set well with her, but I think it did affect her. She's STILL an old goat at heart! :O)

    When my children were younger, I rarely bought baby formula. I used carnation milk and vitamins. I feel that its better and less expensive than baby formula. It worked for my family. It might work with yours. Good luck.

    We understand much more now about the nutrients that babies need, which is

    ideally in breast milk, and reproduced as best as possible in formula. Many of

    these nutrients are not in powdered milk and kyro syrup, so I would definitely

    discuss it with your baby's pediatrician before changing what the baby eats.

    Why didn't I remember that?



    My son was breastfed until 9 months, at which point I was so malnourished

    that I was not able to produce enough. (My husband did not feed us). The

    doc tried to get him in WIC formula - cow's formula just made him cough and

    he didn't grow at all. Soy formula was no better. They put my son in the

    hospital after he did not grow for two months. They couldn't figure

    anything out until my mother snuck in goat's milk. He started gaining

    weight right away. Something about goat's milk being closest to human?

    Anyway, he was picky about that - he liked best when I got the raw goat's

    milk from the market - non-pasteurized. It smells like a goat!!!!

    I completely agree with Stephanie and Suzanne. Please do not try to do

    it yourself except in some extreme emergency (trapped in

    snowstorm/hurricane).



    Two of ours are adopted. Although I was able to do some "cpmlementary

    nursing" with one of those two, here are some things we did to make it

    "closer to the real thing." Perhaps they will help you.



    1) held baby right next to me in "nursing" position, even switched sides!



    2) refused to leave bottle in church nursery - ladies had to come get

    me, same as nursing moms (we figured those 2 babies needed to see mom

    as often as bio-babies did!)



    3) seriously limited time away from baby (took with) just as if baby

    depended on me for nourishment (see #2)



    4) here's the really radical one -- when at home, I even would hold

    baby next to my skin to feed, and we limited others feeding baby -

    almost always mom (same idea as #2)



    It's been quite a while since I wrote these up, (younger of those 2

    boys is now nearly 20 -- but I think that's it. PS: They're each 6'1"

    and about 200# of lean muscle. One is an MP/Iraq vet, the other is in

    the process of enlisting.



    Best Wishes,



    aardvark

    I would definitely have a discussion with your pediatrician before switching to a homemade formula. Today's formulas are as about as close to the real thing as you can get -- you'll have a hard time replicating everything that's in them.





    If the price is an issue my pediatrician said the Walmart brand is exactly the same as Enfamiland the contents on the label certainly supports that. And the powder is less than half the price. My baby was 8 weeks early and was fed breast milk for the first 10 weeks or so until I gave up trying to pump and feed because he refused the breast and then I switched to the Walmart formula. Anyways, at his first birthday he has caught up his real age for weight and height so it must do ok nutritionally.
