WAP also has formulas that are based on liver so if you are REALLY freaked out by raw milk you can go that way. Again though, you need to know your source for liver just like raw milk, as they are not all created equal.

From WAP site:

FAQ: http://www.westonaprice.org/faq/faq-...e-baby-formula

Personally I wouldn't give it to a NICU baby (meaning one that is just out of the NICU or in it) but I wouldn't mind giving it to an otherwise healthy baby. I have no issues with breastfeeding though and my children seem to take to it like a duck to water.
The one based on liver has a nearly toxic level of Vitamin A.
