When my daughter Anneliese was 4 months old, I got pregnant with my daughter Aspen. Nursing and being pregnant really took a toll on my body.
Around 6-7 months Anneliese stopped gaining weight and became very lethargic. She started trying to eat her weight in people food, which resulted in her not getting proper nutrition.
I was desperate to find a formula that was dairy-free, soy-free and no processed sugars or chemicals. Well, there is NOTHING on the market like that so I had to do some research… I finally found a recipe I saw fit for my baby girl, did some additional research on the ingredients, and was pleased. The vegan formula below is adapted from thesnapmom.com
I will tell you that it has been amazing for my little girl. As soon as we started giving it to her, she started gaining weight and just thriving mentally and physically. It is certainly a blessing we are able to use natural plant based ingredients to nourish our babies!
I strongly believe that breast milk is the absolute best for your children. However, in life circumstances arise where breast milk is no longer an option. This formula does an amazing job giving your little ones what they need!
(Tommee tippee bottles are my all time favorite to use!)
Anneliese is now a year and a half and still drinks some occasionally.
Praise God for the plants he put on this earth to nourish our bodies.
