no this isnt a bash the cheap formula post its a looky at what i found post. this formula is made with goats milk and is a great alternative to the moms of today that are both frugal AND into knowing what goes into their baby. it includes goats milk, organic coconut oil (virgin works too), organic olive oil (virgin or extra virginis good), organic raw turbinado sugar, unsulphered black strap molasses, probiotics (it says infant strain but the regular stuff can be used too and over 6 month olds can just have a thing of yogurt daily instead), and a good source of vitamin powder or drops.
I found the vitamin drops on vitacost and black strap molasses on there as well, they both will cost just under 30 bucks shipping and all for a 4 month supply of both. the turbinado sugar is cheap at publix or walmart and they both carry the organic variety in a big container that can last up to 2 months or more depending on the age. i have gotten this for less than 5 bucks in a pour container in the past from walmart. the olive oil can be gotten for 6 bucks at a good ethnic food store and the coconut oil is at publix for around 8 bucks for a nice sized container of it. both containers of these oild can last 2-4 months or more depending on the age and size of the containers. and instead of powdered milk organic goat milk can be gotten in a can for around 4 bucks. you can make around a gallon of milk with two cans of this milk because its evaporated.
so the things to add in can be gotten for about 50 bucks or less and last up to 4 months or more depending on age and size of the items bought. drinks 1/2 a gallon of the formula daily (my daughter will drink this much because she does table foods due to being nearly 8 months) thats on average 7 cans a week 28 cans a month thats about 112 a month in the goats milk.
this is on average 124 bucks a month to feed the child. now if one were to get the formula in the can it could cost up to 75 dollars a week in formula for specialty and 60 for non specialty thats 300 on average for specialty formulas and 240 onaverage for non specialty. i have seen some people squeak by on 45 a week for the cheaper formulas (in this area) thats still 180.
So if you make your own formula you can get a better price AND get rid of th ejunk they put in the formula!! If you have made it this far without skipping lines thank you for staying with me.
im just using it as a guide and getting my own stuff cheaper than the products they try to promote.
