We started giving Melody goat milk in addition to her Nursing at around 4 months, I am 44 and the baby seemed to need more milk than I was producing. She has done great on fresh goats milk in addition to Nursing.
Our goats are pregnant and one quit giving milk this week and the other gives a little over 2 cups a day.
What to do? Well my friend found a great recipe and it will double our milk supply, we only need 3 or 4 cups (8oz) a day.
It calls for rice milk, you can buy organic Rice Dream, or make your own rice milk.
Rice Milk (makes 2 cups)
2 1/2 c cooked rice
2 1/2 c distilled water
Blend on low, then strain through cheese cloth.
Baby Formula (milk)
2 c goat milk
2 c rice milk ( organic Rice Dream)
1 Tb Black Strap Molasses
1 Tb liquid acidophilus (I just open up a capsule ''powder'')
1 Tb flax seed oil or coconut oil (I use coconut oil)
Blend on low...Make only one batch at a time you do not want it to go bad before you can use it all.
Note: You can add to this if you want to,
1 tsp liquid Vit C
1 tsp liquid CalMag
1/8 tsp powdered wheat germ
16 drops of trace minerals
I did not choose to add these last ingredients to mine.
