If you can drink it safely & are still breastfeeding, you will pass on any needed antibodies to him. Maybe give his immune system a couple more months while YOU drink the milk, before introducing it to him.
I live in Rhode Island, where it is illegal to buy or sell raw milk (how absurd.) Fortunately, it is legal in nearby Massachusetts, and RI being teeny tiny, I can easily travel to MA for some raw milk. Anyway, I usually don't drink milk; never... (more)
I'm originally from Western MA - there is a place called Uppingil Farm in Gill, MA that sells their raw milk (about 2 hour drive for you one way, but it is phenomenal). Have you talked to the Whittier Farm in Sutton, MA?

I know raw frozen yogurt and ice cream can stay months in the freezer, but as my father doesn't want to drive that frequently to the farm (far away from him) he was wondering how long it can stay in the freezer. I know some of the probiotics will... (more)
Both my kids have diarrhea and I gave them both raw milk for the first time a few days ago. Obviously there are so many factors that could be the cause, but I wonder if this is common? They both have had pasteurized milk many times with no... (more)
Hello all, I get good raw milk from a farm, and I get a lot (3 2-liter bottles is a lot when you live alone!). I drink it and I make yoghurt, but I always have lots left. So I made some cottage cheese using the milk (which involves bringing it... (more)
I currently live on 150 acre farm that is being conventionally farmed by someone else. Eventually the hubby and I want to take it over and turn it into an organic farm. That has to wait for better finances, but we would like to start this... (more)
Is it bad to melt raw milk cheese? I've seen some debate over cooking with raw milk. The heating basically acts the same as pasteurizing. I'm wondering if melting the cheese on my omelet at a low temp is destroying the benefits of have raw milk... (more)
