Re: Spinoff of goat milk thread

Breast fed babies strive perfectly without solids under 1 year. And as long as my baby is flourishing and fits the weight chart I see no reason for food. That's just my opinion.

Re: Spinoff of goat milk thread

Oh and I worked like a crazy to keep up my milk supply so why kill it so early? She will be eating all her life...

My pediatric nurse practitioner said to add blackstrap molasses to goats milk because it is lacking in b vitamins. She recommends it instead of formula for bf babies.

Historically, yes, babies have died from bacteria in raw milk (cow's, mostly, but goat's would also be potentially contaminated). Here's a link to a 2005 infant death reported in the NY Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/03/16/nyregion/16milk.html

I personally would not be comfortable with the risk of feeding raw animal milk to an infant unless I knew each container did not contain something dangerous to my baby. Adults consuming raw milk is one thing, but I have serious concerns about infants.

Are you sure you can't find another milk donor? I am a donor but I already have more recipients than I can fully supply.

Re: Spinoff of goat milk thread

Humans milk, like goats milk, will vary based on diet and the stage they are at in nursing. Goats milk nutritional content also varies by breed.

You can research general composition of breast milk and goats milk to get a general idea of the two though.

As posted in the other thread, I and my children consume raw goats milk and I have used it with infants (making sure to keep up with well baby check-ups,heel sticks etc)

Looks like the article is talking about raw products that were brought in from Mexico? I understand that there have been issues reported with raw milk but I'm not so sure that article is talking about local raw milk and it seems to actually have been discussing soft cheese for the most part...

Re: Spinoff of goat milk thread

I think that link is a bit off topic here?..

Thanks happy2beaMommy. So you don't boil the milk before use? Have you ever had that the milk made any of you sick? And what do you mean keep up with well visits and heel stick?
