My son just turned one on February 2nd! We have come so far and he has been such a joy for me. I was able to breastfeed him for eight months and then used organic formula till he was 12 months old. Now that he is a year we are wandering what milk to put him on. He has a pretty well rounded diet. I read what you said about goats milk, etc and we would love to be able to give our son exclusively raw goats milk but the only place we have been able to find it charges almost $9.00 for a half gallon. We are giving him a few ounces of the raw goats milk mixed with almond milk at the moment. He seems to have broke out in a rash which he hasn't had in a LONG time once we transitioned him off formula.
Our options are to give him what we can afford with the raw goats milk and mix it in with almond milk or give him exclusively almond milk which does not contain alot of fat to support a young toddlers growth or give him pasteurized goats milk which is a little less expensive. I know how important it is to use raw goats milk instead but my husband is not willing to pay what it costs for him to drink it exclusively. Would it be ok if I were to mix the raw and pasteurized goats milk together to make it easier to digests. Hubby only wants to give him six ounces of raw goats milk a day. Im not sure what to give this kid! I don't like the idea of giving cows milk....even if it's raw but it is less expensive even when raw and you can buy it by the gallon! Need some ideas!
