Curious about Goats Milk Formula for your baby?

Yes, we know that Breast is best. We get it.  We also know that some babies just won’t take the boob or some Mum’s choose not to breastfeed (and you know – that’s okay!). If you are bottle feeding and your bub is cranky, windy, bloated, and having a tough time with traditional cow’s milk formula, perhaps look at Goats Milk Formula as an alternative.

Note: Never ever feed your baby unpasteurized milk from either cows or goats.

All Baby Formula is Modified for Human Babies

As breastmilk is unique and is perfect for human babies, when manufacturers make baby formula, they need to modify the ingredients to make it suitable for human consumption.  The milk powder has additional ingredients that humans specifically need and these include different carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals.  

Baby formula is highly regulated in Australia, with all available baby formulas meeting these standards before being allowed to be sold.  So know that if you purchase baby formula from any reputable retailer – this meets the strict Australian standard.

Why Use Goat’s Milk Baby Formula?

Goats Milk Formula is a baby formula that is an alternative to the more traditional cow’s milk formula.  Goat’s milk has less of the A2 casein protein that is found in traditional cows milk formula and this can be gentler on a baby’s stomach as it can be more easily absorbed. Goats Milk Formula has some additional vitamins and minerals not found in cow’s milk formula – however, cow’s milk formula has additional folate.  

If your baby suffers from wind, constipation, bloating and reflux – and doesn’t have dairy intolerances, Goats Milk Formula can be a wise choice. As always, check with your GP or healthcare professional if you are having trouble feeding your newborn baby to check for any milk allergies or intolerances.

Is Goat’s Milk Formula Healthier Than Cow’s Milk Formula?

Goat’s Milk Formula isn’t necessarily healthier – just different.  All milk contains the ingredients whey and casein. In human breastmilk, the ratio of whey and casein changes constantly depending on your baby’s needs. Cow’s milk formula has a very similar ratio of whey and casein to breast milk. Goat’s milk formula on the other hand has a higher ratio of casein – in fact up to four times the amount.

Casein is the protein that digests very slowly in the gut. Because of this slower digestion, it can be better on irritable tummies.
