With growing antagonism for what is occuring daily in this country, combined with the knowledge that in about six months the gunbunny family will have a new addition, is keeping me up to a late hour this night. How do you make baby formula from readily household items? We have: powdered lowfat milk (hard to find whole powdered milk locally), Whey protein milk substitute, wheat, rice, and oats. I remember my daughter eating several of these items (the grains) after about 3 months or so, but always mixed with formula. She did have natural mother's milk for a little while, but circumstances beyond her mother's control ended that after about six months. From that point on it was formula. I was told that children under 2 should not have cow's milk (or honey) so our daughter didn't have any until she was older. If it can't be made with what I have, what do I need? Or- how long does #10 cans of formula last in storage? I can remember the cans say not to store for more than 6 months, but really, they are sealed! It wouldn't be too hard to get a bunch of cans of formula and store them with the other stuff. Does anybody have some experience with this?
