Lgamache90:I'm dreading the milk transition. I hate milk, all milk...the smell, the taste. I'll just do organic WCM per my pedi's suggestion.
I am with you on this. And the more I do research on milk for DD, the more it grosses me out.
goat then cow. we did the same for our first.
Luvofmylife3:WCM. One from a local dairy that is not homogenized and very low pasteurized because raw milk is illegal to sell in Ohio. Organic is ultra pasteurized and loses a ton of nutritional value that babies need. We will also be using organic unsweetened coconut milk also.

Can you explain this? Mammals after weaning age don't actually need milk - from their own or others. The reason milk is maintained in a baby's diet is for fat for brain development, not really for any other nutritional component. As the solids' diet is expanded, that's where the nutrition comes from. Milk is just supposed to be quick, easy calories.
Luvofmylife3:Raw free range grass fed cows milk has the most nutritional value. Organic milk that is sold in my area is all ultra pasteurized which strips a lot of vitamins and such from the milk. But like I said it is illegal to sell raw milk in Ohio so I did extensive research on all of our local dairys.
Do you think that the trade off for organic (less nutrition) vs. regular (additives/hormones/etc) WCM is worth it?
I was googling after I started this thread and in VA it's illegal to sell raw milk, too. However, they get around it by selling you a share in a cow. So, the cow is YOURS and they charge you an initial fee and then $35 boarding fee. You come get your milk once/week or something.
I have no plans to get raw milk, I think there's a reason it's illegal and wouldn't give it to DS, but that's just an FYI. Maybe there's something like that around you.
