Surviving Hard Times

Feb 15, 2024

When Ammie Harris brought home her newborn son, she quickly realized there was a problem: he wasn’t latching well, and she had a low breast milk supply. Her son was losing weight and she needed to act quickly.

The pediatrician recommended a commercial formula, but it didn't work -- not a single commercial formula did -- and her son still wasn’t gaining weight. Then she stumbled upon a controversial article about the benefits of homemade cow’s milk formula.

She was scared to try it and unsure about whether she was making the right decision, but having exhausted other options, what else could she do?

Within days of trying this homemade formula, her son’s weight was skyrocketing and he was thriving.
