I could not produce enough milk for my twins. I was unhappy with the commercial baby formula and the organics one were expensive and yet they were not the best option for me. Through the Weston A Price Foundation found this recipe. My pediatrician was very open to this homemade baby formula, although she asked some question and why I was switching to the this option. My twins flourished amazingly. They always were very healthy babies and they grown up as very strong toddlers. Thank you for providing us a healthy option!
My grandson had some issues at birth and was in NICU for several weeks. We fed this formula to him for his first year and his development has been exceptional. Would recommend this to everyone.
What a HUGE BLESSING it was to this Mama to discover the homemade formula recipe and then find out Radiant Life provides the kit to assemble the formula! After having lots of difficulty breastfeeding and watching my daughter steadily decline and lose weight, I began to experiment with store bought formulas (Gerber, EnFamil). My baby was starting to put on weight, but had bad gas, constipation, spit up a lot, and still cried every 2 hours wanting to feed. I had originally ordered Holle formula from Germany and that was wonderful, but it is pricey and takes a while to ship so I knew that would not be a permanent option for me. After much researched, I discovered this formula recipe (using raw cows milk) and decided to give it a try. I was elated to find Radiant Life's website and that they sell complete kits to assemble the formula while using the highest quality of ingredients! I feel sooo good about what I am putting in my baby's little tummy as I know exactly every ingredient that went into making her formula! Since starting her on this formula, we have said goodbye to fussiness, excessive gas, runny green stool, and frequent feedings. She is absolutely thriving and happy! I never knew what a satisfied, content baby was until now.
