What To Do With A Bloated Baby Goat
My grandma's stools was goat like. Black, but also taking iron suplement sometimes with bloated abdomen. Wen palapated no mass no pain soft.?
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
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.
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
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).

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

Soften stools: Infants transitioning diets to solids may not get enough fiber / fluids in diet; 5 gm of fiber daily, try pureeing vegetables, fruits and use of infant cereals with adequate amount of fiber, an average sized 11 month old should have about 32 oz of fluids daily. If these measures are not helpful, baby will need further evaluation ...Read more
Trying to wean 5mth old baby but he spews formula, he doesn't spew breastmilk. I was told to stay off dairy so he's on goats formula for his tummy
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

The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

Bloating by baby: You didn't mention your infant's age. If your baby is vomiting repeatedly throughout the day, don't delay & get help right now for obstruction. The possibilities for considerable pathology & consequences are too great to ignore! If your child is instead spitting a portion of every feeding, or you suspect a food intolerance, urgency is less in seeking help but evaluation now is still warranted. ...Read more
