Not necessarily: Goat milk is deficient in many of the nutrients that human infants need for proper growth and development. Folate (folic acid) is one of the items it lacks & some commercial goat milks have added this to their product to improve if for human consumption. There are at least a dozen formulas available that provide balanced nutrition for infants. Certainly one will be adequate for any infant.
