  1. Almond milk

    thanks! yes, there isn't any sugar in any form, carrageenan, or any other banned substances that I can tell.
  2. Almond milk

    Did some label comparison and wondering if Blue Diamond Unsweetened plain and unsweetened vanilla are okay. When I compared to Califia farms, only difference was the added vitamin A Palmitate, Vitamin D2, D-Alpha-Tocopherol (natural vitamin E). Do these added vitamins make this non-compliant? I know in the book they talk about using specific vitamin brands. I can't get the unsweetened vanilla Califia farms at any of the stores near me and don't care for plain unsweetened (other than for using when cooking)
  3. Question about eggs for BLW

    Just Watch carefully. We fed our three kids scrambled eggs with the yolk and whites from day 1 once we introduced proteins into their diet (around 8 months old). We did blw with all three. Loved the method. Didn't prevent picky eating but i figure this is karma biting me in the butt because I was a very picky eater in my youth/early adulthood. Lol!
  4. Whole milk for babies- necessary when no longer breastfeeding?

    Haven't started my whole30 yet but my kids are all dairy sensitive. I had to be dairy free while breastfeeding for their first 7 months or they pooped blood. Stopped after that so I went back to having dairy but my tummy wasn't happy so I went back to almond milk. My oldest was finally able to tolerate Cow milk when she was 2.5 yrs old but likely would do better back in goat milk or even the almond milk but she refuses to drink either. The 2 yr old twins were on protein plus almond milk from 15 months until we couldn't get it anymore around when they turned 2 in October. Now they get Cow milk and do okay (they refused all other milks and still don't love Cow milk). When I asked our family doctor about finding a Cow milk alternative for #1, she told me that she didn't need milk. She grew up in Belgium and said that once babies weaned, they didn't drink milk. Just water and other liquids. A gallon of Cow milk in our home lasts 2 wks. The 4 yr old is the only one who consistently drinks it but we let her decide if she wants it. Otherwise the kids drink water. I'm actually excited to try the whole 30 compliant almond/coconut milk mix to see if the twins will like it. They pretty much eye any milk appearing liquid with skepticism ever since we couldn't get their favorite milk.
