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

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

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

Feeding: Preferable to feed infant formula or breast feed unless there is an allergy and then you may have to resort to goat's milk. It is safe to use for a 1-month old but will be missing nutrients. All the best. ...Read more

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

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

Formula feeding: Goat's milk does not contain a key nutrient called folic acid, a lack of which can cause severe anemia. I don't know about Australia but there should be other commercially available formulas to try-one might consider one that is either lower in lactose content, more predigested or easier to digest or even a soy based one. You should probably check with the baby's PCP about different formula types ...Read more
