Have you noticed that your children sometimes have a stomach ache after drinking milk?
Maybe your baby has tummy troubles and you’re worried about weaning straight onto cows milk?
You may find that while your child suffers from diarrhea, vomiting, and poor weight gain. Or it could be that when they’re sick or run down they have problems digesting cow’s milk. These are signs that they may have an intolerance.
This will often be noticed within the first few weeks of an infant being introduced to cows milk, which is why many parents are choosing to use goats milk formula instead.
While the vast majority of kids with milk allergies and intolerances will outgrow them by the time they’re school aged, goats milk is an excellent alternative, particularly when they’re babies.
While cow’s milk is popular in the United States, thanks, in part to campaigns like “Got Milk?”, 65% of the world chooses goat’s milk over cow milk.
Why you Should Introduce your Baby to Goat’s Milk
Kids who are mildly sensitive to cow’s milk can often drink goat’s milk or goat’s milk formula without suffering from any adverse effects. This is because goat’s milk is easier to digest and gentler on our stomachs.
The fat and curd in goat’s milk react differently in our bodies compared to cow’s milk. Because goat’s milk doesn’t contain agglutinin, the fat globules won’t all cluster together.
This makes it easier for our bodies to digest (especially little tummies), along with the higher proportion of medium-chain and short-chain fatty acids which are easier for our internal enzymes to work with.
Goat’s milk also has a different protein, which equals a softer curd that’s also softer on our stomachs as we digest it. It also has a smaller percentage of lactose, making it closer to breast milk than cow’s milk.
Worried about nutrition? Well, goat’s milk is just as nutritious as cow’s milk. It’s just easier for many people to digest.
Your Baby Will Love Kabrita Goat Milk Formula
If you’re formula feeding your baby and worried about their constant upset stomach, Kabrita goat milk formula is the answer you’ve been looking for.
Gentle on Little Tummies
Kabrita’s formula has goat milk protein as its base. Since goat milk protein forms a gentler curd and is broken down faster, it’s not hanging around and causing trouble in your baby’s belly.
All the Micronutrients your Baby Needs
Moms who have babies with an intolerance to cow’s milk will often consider using plant-based (soy, coconut, rice, or nut) milk or whole goat milk as an alternative.
These are great for older kids, but they lack some of the important nutrients that babies and toddlers need to grow up healthy and strong. These include zinc, iron, folate, and B vitamins.
Kabrita Goat Milk Formula has been enriched with 22 minerals and vitamins, so you can give your little one the best start in life.
Plenty of Protein
Often, parents are tempted to rely on nut or rice milk if their toddlers have digestion problems with cow’s milk. However, toddlers need around 13 grams of protein each day, and nut milk only has 1 gram or less of protein per cup.
Kabrita Goat Milk Formula has a huge 5g of protein in just 2 half-cup servings.
Say No to GMO
Many moms are concerned with the prevalence of GMO foods and want to provide their baby with a non-GMO option.
Kabrita Goat Milk is produced in The Netherlands. In The Netherlands (and throughout Europe) there are strict guidelines, ensuring that in order for a food to be labeled “non-GMO”, it must contain less than 0.9% GMO ingredients.
Yup, it’s time to talk about poop. Babies do a lot of it, and if they have a problem digesting cow’s milk, pooping may be an uncomfortable experience.
Kabrita Goat Milk Formula contains an OPO fat blend which includes beta-palmitate. These types of fat blends have been associated with:
- increased calcium and fatty acid absorption
- Decreased gas and colic
- Increased healthy gut microflora
- Softer stools.
Many people assume that goat’s milk will have that strong taste associated with goat’s cheese. But goat’s milk can also be mild, and your baby is sure to love Kabrita Goat Milk formula.
The taste of goat milk will depend on the breed of goat, and Kabrita goat milk and formula is appealing for little ones, with a mild, slightly sweet taste.
From Baby to Toddler
Kabrita Goat Milk formula will nourish your baby through their first few years. Kabrita 1 infant milk is enriched with all the necessary minerals and vitamins, along with prebiotic fibers and unsaturated fatty acids like AA and DHA. This formula is suitable up until your baby is six months old.
Kabrita 2 Follow-on Milk is made from the same high-quality goat milk as Kabrita 1 infant milk. It also includes the Digest X OPO-fat blend, which will ensure that your baby is getting all the nutrients they need to thrive when they’re between 6 and 12 months old.
Kabrita 3 Toddler Milk is the first formula that has combined a modern-day formulation with goat milk. Once your child has become a big one-year-old, they’re much more active than they were when they were a baby.
This means that your little one will have different nutritional requirements. That’s why Kabrita 3 Toddler Milk was developed, so that (along with a varied diet), these nutritional requirements can be met- keeping your toddler healthy and strong.
Kabrita 3 Toddler Milk can be used as soon as your toddler turns 1, and until they no longer want to take a bottle.
While there are many opinions about what babies should be drinking, remember that the right choice is what’s right for you and your child.
