Karihome Goat Milk Infant Formula
Why mucous in infant stools sometimes accompanied by tiny blood strains. My baby is almost 5 months old. We have switched to goat milk one month ago.
All try to be: If considering a formula, the primary difference in types is the source of protein, (cow milk vs soy bean) and type of sugar (lactose vs non-lactose). All are regulated a by the fda and required to have certain components. All claim to be similar to breast milk in their benefit to the kids. The major brands are supported by decades of continuing research. Find one baby likes and stick with it. ...Read more
I added another half a scoop of infant formula by mistake while making formula milk. Baby has drank it. Should I be worried?
Depends on situation: Some folks prefer the bovine protein as more human like & there is some question whether the soy lives up to its quality. That said, most kids would never have any appreciable difference in growth/development either way. The exception comes if a kid is intolerant to one. If so, the other product or a specialty formula like alumentum would be less likely to cause GI symptoms. ...Read more
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
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
My baby just turned 1. Which is better 4 her, stick to baby formula or switch her 2 cow's milk? Which one is healthier? Thank you ☺
Depends: By the time a kid turns one, most have incorporated a variety of semisolid foods. These can easily make up for some of the special features of breast milk or formula. Regular milk, rather than low fat/skim is needed because baby uses the added fat to support brain growth which slows after 2. The extra in formula if not used end up in her pee. ...Read more
I'm a brand new mom and my milk is drying up, but I don't want to give my baby formula. What can I do?
Pump/feed often: Breastmilk supply does its best to keep up with demand so if you think your milk production is falling a little short increase the demand. A couple times a day pump after your baby nurses. Stimulating your breasts when they're empty tells your body "the baby finished all the milk and is still hungry - I better make more". And remember to rest when you can, eat well, and stay hydrated. ...Read more

My baby brother is 3 weeks old and refusing breast milk, is it okay to start using baby formula in a bottle?
INFANT FEEDING: I see mom is taking propranolol, carbamezipine and propylthiouracil. All these are l-2 drugs, means she can breastfeed without adverse effects to the baby.

Best advise: talk to the pediatrician. ...Read more
Is there any hypoallergenic baby formula that tastes similar to breast milk? Any formula at all similar?

I had birth on may 5/2014, and till now I didn't have my menstrual cycle, and I'm feeding my baby formula milk not from my breast, so is this normal?
Not normal: Usually periods resume within 8 weeks of having a baby if you never breastfed. I I would do a pregnancy test and see your doctor for further evaluation. If you took Clomid (clomiphene) in order to get pregnant, you're probably not ovulating and therefore not getting periods. If this is the case, then you should be on hormonal medication to regulate cycles when nor trying to get pregnant. ...Read more

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
