Same here. I even tried the raw goat's milk one and the meat-based one. I was very uncomfortable with the ingredients of the meat one (the liver is raw but frozen IIRC, it's been awhile). I felt better about the goat's milk one but I was not comfortable with giving raw milk to an infant. I know all about the benefits of raw milk but I also know there are risks. If my baby got sick from drinking raw milk, I could just never forgive myself.
