I am planning on breastfeeding, but due to complicated health issues, I am not sure how long I will be able to do so. I have researched the best commercially available infant formulas (according to Weston A. Price and the Paleo community) and... (more)

It seems like so many people I speak to in my age group (I'm 25) are foregoing breast feeding for their newborns and opting for bottle feeding instead. This of course does not apply to people who cannot breastfeed for whatever reason. It seems... (more)

Please don't blame the moms--they need our compassion & support more than ever in this area. I work in the pregnancy/birth world and I think it is very challenging for new moms who don't have support to breastfeed. In some places in the... (more)

Paleo is not about re-enactment. Paleo is about making informed choices in a modern world. What commercially available brand (available in Europe/Belgium) of baby/infant formula would you give to your child. Or which one certainly not. And... (more)

"Paleo is not about re-enactment. Paleo is about making informed choices in a modern world." Well said, and I whole-heartedly agree. The best we've found is the Hipp Organic formula. I spent more than an hour in our local Edeka reading... (more)

I make the homemade formula. I slowly introduced it in small portions and increased the ratio slowly over about a week. Just like anything else sometimes their tummies need a slow transition. She has been on it for the past 3 months and is 9... (more)

Reading around this and other sites, I think we need a common formula on which we can all agree, in order to persuade the doubters. Then we can focus on this rather than on our differences of opinion. I'd like to suggest the following: Optimum... (more)

Just Bought "advanced health formula" from primal blueprint. Any thoughts on overall effectiveness and value? I was also thinking of buying the more expensive damage control but opted to go start with this.

those who were formula fed have not only underdeveloped guts but lower mineral and nutrient reserves. This relays lifelong gut problems, but also nutrient delivery problems, chemical regulation in the brain, autoimmune trouble, and soooo much... (more)

I was exclusively breastfed, to the point that I wouldn't even take a bottle of expressed milk. I bf'ed for 2 years and didn't eat many solids at all the first year, getting pretty much all of my nutrition from breast milk. Sounds close to... (more)

My mother still thinks it's healthy. What can I tell her is wrong with it and why breast milk is ideal?

As the mother of premature twins who breastfed for fourteen months, I feel qualified to say that formula is a godsend and quite literally saved my sanity. My babies got tons and tons of good, healthy breast milk. But they got a decent amount of... (more)

I think it's wonderful that your wife is committing to 6 months, any amount of breastfeeding is good. I aslo think people should stop being judgemental and holier than thou when it comes to breastfeeding. If she can breastfeed for 2 years great,... (more)

This is diet related. Ideal nutrition creates the conditions for perfect health, which is reflected in our growth and the formula for phi (Phi=(1+???n)/2) has something to do with ideal growth in all things, IMO. (See... (more)

I would like to start transitioning my 8 month old to a paleo diet. Unfortunately, I stopped breastfeeding at 4 months so she is on formula, which I will probably continue until she is 10/11 months. Does anyone have experience with giving babies... (more)

Just an FYI - it is very easy to "restart" breast feeding, if you wish. Just contact your local Le Leche League for the "how tos" and a wonderful support network. They may even have women willing to donate milk for you. My mom donated milk to them... (more)
