Can I give my 10month old goats milk?

Can I give my 10month old goats milk?

No: No, introduction of non-breast milk or formula should only occur after 12 months of age. Even with that, goats milk is not recommended because of the risk for vitamin deficiencies with this type of milk. Please discuss this with your child's doctor prior to starting them on something other than breast milk or formula. ...Read more

Is it ok to give my baby goat's milk?

No: Goats milk is higher in protein and makes babies kidneys work a lot harder. It also has less vitamin B6 and folic acid. Babies that are allergic to cows milk tend to be allergic to goats milk. It is not a milk you want to use the first year of life and never raw. ...Read more

Is goat's milk better than cow's milk?

Is goat's milk better than cow's milk?

Not really: Some people feel that they tolerate goats milk better than cows milk. However, if you are lactose intolerant, you will be intolerant to both cow and goat milk. If you are sensitive to the protein in cows milk, causing bloating, constipation, and cramping, you will likely have the same problem with goats milk. Goats milk does not provide better nutrition for humans than cows milk. ...Read more

May I feed my baby 1 month olds w??ith karihome goat's milk

Probably not : Although goats milk may be closer to human milk than cow's milk, there are several distinct dangers to babies. First are vitamin deficiencies, goats milk lacks both vitamin b12 and folate (folic acid). Babies develop a "megaloblastic anemia" from this deficiency. Second is a danger of infection, brucellosis, you should know, so definitely boil before use. ...Read more

My baby has 5 months, can he drinks goat milk?

My baby has 5 months, can he drinks goat milk?

Not a good idea: Gaots milk is designed for goats. It is not balanced nutrition for a human infant and is specifically deficient in folate (folic acid). Formulas are balanced and several are available to meat the specific needs of any kid. I encourage people to wait until after age 1 yr to offer goats milk. ...Read more

Is drinking too many goat's milk, bad for health?

Is drinking too many goat's milk, bad for health?

Depends: On what too many means to you. Humans are the only mammals that continue to consume milk after early childhood, and all milk has lots of fat and cholesterol. While goat's milk produces less allergic and GI symptoms in many people than cows milk, it is not necessarily healthier. A diet heavy on plant-based food and light on animal-based food, including milk, is healthiest. ...Read more

Better than cow but:: In general, I agree with the many experts who say that milk is designed by nature as food for babies and most adults are better off avoiding milk. See http://saveourbones.com/osteoporosis-milk-myth/

Can I switch my 10 month old from formula to goats milk? Lately she has been refusing formula and only wants to eat solids.

Why bother: Milk is a convenient source of calcium in a kids diet & promoted heavily by the dairy industry as a perfect food, bull! If a kid is exploring other foods, calcium sources like yogurt, cottage cheese, cheese, goat cheese and even calcium tablets can provide all they need. They can get the fat/protein/fluid they need thru other diet sources including water. ...Read more

Is "Goat's Milk Formula" better than cows milk formula? Our baby does not have any allergies. But would like to know if one is better than the other?  Thanks

No: Recent studies found that avoidance of food beyond the 1st 6 months of life actually makes one more likely to develop food allergy. Goat's milk cross-react with cow's milk rather extensively, and thus it is not a good substitute even if the child does develop milk allergy. ...Read more

How can cow's milk trigger my allergies and goat milk not?

Cow vs goat milk : The two types of milk are different allergenically. Only about a quarter of people who are allergic to cow's milk are also allergic to goat or sheep milk, according to a spanish research group who studied 58 children with severe milk allergies and found 15 had some cross-reactivity. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22432882. ...Read more

How typical are sheep/goat milk allergies without cows milk allergies?

My 7mo bub is frequently vomiting up to 4 hours after her milk feeds.I've switched to goat formula & then to soy but no luck. It doesn't hurt her.?

See below.: If she's a "happy spitter" -- i.e., she is growing well, eats well, and has no other symptoms -- other than keeping her upright after feedings, giving her solids each time she has liquids, and making sure she's burping well, there's nothing else needed. 75-90% of infants with reflux outgrow it by 9-12 months old, and most of the rest by 2 years old. If she's not doing well, see her doctor. ...Read more

What milk is best to treat or help with my constipated 2 year old? I've tried 2%, and 1% and don't seem to work. Can I try goats milk or Lactaid Milk?

What milk is best to treat or help with my constipated 2 year old? I've tried 2%, and 1% and don't seem to work. Can I try goats milk or Lactaid Milk?

Milk: It is unlikely any of these milks will treat his constipation. He should be drinking at least 2% milk. Increasing juices and fibre may help. If you have started potty training a break from this may help. A daily dose of laxaday or restorolax may help until he is consistently passing soft and normal diameter stools. All the best. ...Read more

Can I give my 8 week old baby store bought goat milk?

Great for goats: Just like cow milk is designed for cows, human milk for humans, goats milk is for goats. It's only value in public exchange is for those whose culture prefers it to cow milk when the kid is old enough to be off breast milk or formula. It is deficient in various nutrients required for proper human growth and development and can lead to a predictable form of megaloblastic anemia. ...Read more

Thank you. I was dianosed with casein intolerance. I've been avoiding cow dairy. How do I know if I'm supposed to avoid goat's milk/cheese too?

Separate protein: The way your immune system works a sensitivity is to a specific origin, like the protein from cows is different from protein from goats, so you are not automatically sensitive to the goat product. You can be tested for sensitivity to goat products, but I would consider it safe unless your system starts to signal otherwise. ...Read more

Milk acne: Goat's milk or yogurt is different from Cow's milk so it is possible that you can use it without the sensitivity that you get from the cow's milk. If it is true acne, that is not an allergic reaction, but a sensitivity. ...Read more

Could goat milk mixed with face wash be a good remedy for acne?

Of course not: Please forgive my frankness. Somebody made this up as a cruel prank. If your acne hasn't responded to topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated after two weeks, get with your personal physician who can add something that will clear you. I'm really sorry that you had to ask -- acne is a grave personal and professional liability that you need to manage until it remits on your own. ...Read more

Is it alright for small babies to feed on goat milk, if they are not being breast fed?

Is it alright for small babies to feed on goat milk, if they are not being breast fed?

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. ...Read more
