  1. Fill a 2 cup Pyrex measuring cup with filtered water and remove 2 TBL (this will give you 1 7/8 cup water).

  2. Pour about half the water into a pan and turn burner on medium.

  3. Add the gelatin and lactose and let dissolve, stirring occasionally.

  4. When gelatin and lactose are dissolved, remove the pan from heat and add the rest of the water to cool.

  5. Stir in the coconut oil and butter oil until melted.

  6. Put remaining ingredients in a glass blender.

  7. Add the water mixture and blend for about 3 seconds.

  8. Place formula in glass baby bottles or a glass jar and refrigerate.

  9. Before giving to baby, warm glass bottle in a pan of hot water or a bottle warmer. NEVER microwave baby bottles!

Recipe Notes

*Do NOT use powdered whey from the store as it is denatured. Do not use whey from making cheese as it will curdle the formula.

*Do not substitute pasteurized or powdered milk as these are heavily processed, denatured and allergenic foods.

*Do NOT use ultrapasteurized (UHT) cream. It is highly allergenic. Raw or pasteurized cream is acceptable.

Collagen powder may be substituted for the gelatin in a pinch (more on peptides in baby formula in this article).

Use only cold-pressed, unrefined, low oleic, organic sunflower oil for this recipe. The brand linked to in the ingredients list is recommended as there many different types of this oil on the market.

If the formula becomes slightly congealed in the refrigerator, it is due to the gelatin. It will re-liquefy when warmed for your baby's next bottle.
