my 19 month old O little girl currently has a goat milk formula 1-2 times daily not sure if she is a nonnie, but I am an O nonnie  and not sure about her dad, likely a secretor , anyway I was thinking of making up an alternative formula for her as I don't feels that the goat formula is ideal  ::) even though its organic,  and wondered if you guys had any good ideas as to what I could put in it
I thought I would make my own rice milk as can't find one without safflower/ sunflower oil, make some almond milk and maybe go half and half of each , anyone had any experience making their own rice milk and what type of rice they used, is brown organic  basmati too low in starch perhaps?. i was thinking about putting flaxseed oil in ( after heating slightly of course) any other thoughts on good ingredients to boost nutritional content?  ;)and still taste okay , she currently doenst likethe store bought rice milk i have tried her on  :P

Why does she still need formula of any type?

well it was the changeover for breastfeeding really  that saw the intro of a bit of formula, she doesn't need formula at all but she enjoys having something to drink befroe bed

Is she still nursing at all? If so, how much? if not, is it possible to resume? Even one nursing a day may be enough milk for her, if she's getting plenty of protien and fat from other sources in her diet.

I'd personally be hesitant to eliminate all forms of mammal milk from the diet of a child under 2- toddlers are designed to get milk still.

If you're still making milk but you don't really want to nurse her, you could pump and give her a cup/bottle before bed.  I haven't had any break between my babies, so I can't say how long milk sticks around after you've weaned.  But I like Ruthie's idea.
