One of our community members, Eva Spitzer, shared this testimonial with us today!
I wanted to take a few minutes to give a testimonial on how wonderfully following the diet principles have worked with my daughter. I followed the diet for pregnant and nursing mothers, slowly adopting the wise traditions way of eating over 5 years before getting pregnant. My daughter was born without any complications. She has a wider face and nose than anyone else in the family. She’s the happiest baby I’ve ever met.
Everyone comments how smiley she is. Popular baby books have been useless because they focus on soothing an inconsolable baby, and she doesn’t do that. She sleeps well and only wakes to feed. Her eyesight is better than the books say it should be. She started talking at two months old. When she gets a cold, her only symptom is sleeping a bit more. She’s easy to nurse. The doctor was shocked when she gained a whole pound between one and two weeks old. When the doctor asks if I have any health concerns about her, I say no. Thank you Sandrine Perez and everyone who works to share the wise traditions diet. If you’re new to the diet and struggling with it, know that it will definitely be worth it. My husband and I have also found better health from the dietary changes.
This really warmed my heart to read. I definitely see a very round face; much more circular than oval, which will likely allow enough room for her 32 teeth to come in uninstructed. I’ll be curious to see how Claira develops over time on a nutrient dense diet!

Yayy! I love hearing testimonials like this! We are 15 years in with eating the WAP diet with 3 healthy pregnancies and home births. Happy as babies, toddlers and beyond! It’s not luck it’s diet and life style!
My baby was breastfed until 16 months and we follow most of the recommendations made by Dr. Weston Price. Whole foods diet, pasture raised meats, full fat dairy, fermented foods and lots of fruits and vegetables, as well as soaked grains and legumes. Oh, and cod liver oil, of course! My baby is almost 2 years old and never had an ear infection, only had a fever 3 times up to this day, has no allergies, has a good temper, and is overall very healthy! His colds only last a few days, and he had no problems teething. He also has a wide jaw with plenty of room for teeth.
My happy meateater! Never been constipated or any stomach issues, sleeps like a baby ever since birth, all teeth came without pain or problems (and a wide good jaw!) Perfect sight and hearing, never sick, no allergies or whatever, he’s 2,5 years now.
I could tell so much more but I’ll just say that following the nourishing traditions has been the best I could have done for me and my child ❤️

My son is 20 months old today. I had an emotionally difficult pregnancy and was worried the effect that that would have on my unborn child. The last 2 years have been hard on so many levels…. however, this child has been the healthiest, happiest and most settled baby most people have come across. He was born in a birthing pool at home 2 weeks ‘overdue’… on my 33rd birthday. He gained weight constantly since his birth. He eats and sleeps beautifully and adores REAL food…. especially sauerkraut!. He had a high fever at 4 months and is just recovering from whooping cough, he has managed both illnesses incredibly well without mainstream medicine. His first teeth came through at 3 months and have never given him difficulty! I can’t express how fortunate I feel to stumble upon WAPF.
