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.

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.
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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.

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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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
