We were sitting around with Jesse's parents tonight and they said that when they were younger, people would give babies bottles of pet milk, water, and sugar instead of formula. My mom said that's what my daddy drank as a baby. Isn't that crazy??

By pet milk I mean evaporated milk that comes in a can, do you know what I'm talking about?
In place of formula, they'd put that with water and sugar.

PET Milk
Yeah, that's what babies used to drink instead of formula. Everyone over 50 swears by it, so it's probably not that bad. I'm gonna wait until my baby's older than 6 months to try it (maybe without the sugar, though). They used to put to corn syrup in it, too, lol. I guess they had the original "formula."
