  • Actually, formula is not her only option. You can make your own formula using goat's milk. Google it. My cousin did it and her baby is so smart and healthy. Also, try to pump and give breast milk.

  • At 3 months old formula is your only option , find a way to get some . Maybe a neighbour or friend or family member can help you out.

  • There is nothing you *can* do but get more formula. You cannot give him homemade. Hand money to a neighbor and ask them to get it for you, if nothing else. Sorry, there are no other choices here.

    You can TRY to get him on the breast...and I would in any event so you NEVER run into this again...but that might not get you by for right now. Please google "relactation." Then DO it so you're never left with a hungry baby as your only option.

  • or... if he wont relatch, maybe you could talk to your doctor about reglan, and get your supply going again, and pump and save... so that if this ever happens again.. you will have something to get you through....
    sorry honey, there is nothing you can give him other than formula...
    do whatever it takes.
    Sell your stuff on craigslist if you have to.
