Thumbs up Re: Any Vegan or Non-Dairy people out there? I need advice!

First of all we are the only mammal that thinks we should comsume another mammal's milk. Ever seen a cow nursing on a human?
My first child's pediatrician told me this 18 yrs. ago.

I've been vegan for years but do eat cheese or yogurt if my milk supply is running low. (goat and cow) We usually drink coconut or almond milk. I don't worry about nut allergies if I'm breastfeeding since the lil' one gets that protien in the breastmilk. Coconut water is really good for you too. Lots of raw leafy greens are supposed to be the best way to get your calcium too. You could also try "Garden of life" raw meal.
Try googling"raw coconut water benefits" and do some research on raw meal. Maybe this might work for your family.
Hope this helps.
