      Doctor’s recommendations change because ongoing research reveals new information every day, they are only proving their expertise by keeping up with current research. Certainly individual babies have and may thrive on homemade formulas, but research has proven thatas a groupbabiesthat can’t be given breast milk do best with commercial formulas.

      I was given the Carnation Milk/ Kayro Syrup homemade formula in 1959 and I turned out fine. My husband also had that samething and he turned out just fine. Here is an article I found.
      [edit] Evaporated milk formulas
      In the 1920s and 1930s, evaporated milk began to be widely commercially available at low prices, and several clinical studies suggested that babies fed evaporated milk formula thrive as well as breastfed babies[4][15] (these findings are not supported by modern research.) These studies, accompanied by the affordable price of evaporated milk and the availability of the home icebox initiated a tremendous rise in the use of evaporated milk formulas.[13] By the late 1930s, the use of evaporated milk formulas in the United States surpassed all commercial formulas, and by 1950 over half of all babies in the United States were reared on such formulas.[4]

      The problem I have with consulting the Pediatrician is that they keep changing
      the opfficial recommendation every few years. At one time( my youngest brother) they recommended feeding babies baby cereal at 6 weeks old. When my oldest son was born they recommended forumula and not necessarily any food untill one year.

      A few years later the recommendation was no food untill 6 months old. Then it was no food untill 4 months old. Guess What?

      The babies that had Evaporated milk formulas turned out ok, the commercial formula babies turned out ok, the babies that ate cereal at 6 weeks turned out OK & the ones that ate at 4 months turrned out OK. I no longer see the Dr as the high and mightly infallible expert.

      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.
