You can start you research at www.westonaprice.org.

I refer raw dairy.. Would never give my family conventional dairy because, like pasteurized breastmilk, so much of the immunological benefits are destroyed. The government has put very strict regulations around raw dairy sales, so I would say that the risk is extremely low. Sheep milk is nutritionally very different from cows milk...also VERY hard to find (thus the high cost). Goat is also very different from cows milk (you can view a comparison chart on the website above) and more readily available. Pasteurized goats milk is available in many stores (never buy in powdered form), but raw goat is truly better nutritionally, and yet somewhat tricky to find. Possible though if you have a good farm nearby. We have some good farms near her, thankfully. If you needed something to get you through on week, I would consider the sheep milk mixed with breastmilk, as it is the closest and not too cost prohibitive for short term use.

how interesting!!! I had no idea- I have been wanting to research what I am going to do when he is allowed to have cows milk- is there any danger in raw cow's milk?? the whole issue of dairy is so confusing- I was thinking of trying oat or almond milk too does the sheeps milk have the same nutritional value as cow's whole milk?? thanks for the info!! I don't think we will try something like that on vaca but maybe after he turns 1-

Yes, you can. Sheep milk is pretty close to human milk. Some mothers give it from birth. There are ways to fortify all of the above to make them even better. You do need to cut the milk with water also. Raw cows milk differs vastly from pasteurized and many people with allergies to conventional dairy can tolerate it well.

Fun fact: Donkey milk is the best available milk for baby humans if not human milk. But otter milk is actually the closest known milk to breastmilk...can't really milk an otter, though, lol.

Hi Sarah,

We are running a bit low also, but I wanted to let you know that we have an Amish co-op here where we can easily have raw goat, cow, or sheep (the best) milk delivered each week. I also have many of the supplements needed to fortify it and I live around Worcester, MA, so if it gets closer and you want to have a back up available, let me know at least 12 days in advance and I can add some to our order for you and bring it down. The sheep milk is exceptionally good, but is $18/pint. The other milks are far more affordable and from a very quality source.

If it happens that we have enough to share, we can also try to supplement whatever you get.

Congrats on your little boy! He is gorgeous!

Warmly,
Kelley
