Every parent’s feeding experience is as unique as their baby. While the journey may be easy for some, others may struggle with many issues. Real Dad Story is a first in our series of blog posts where we ask real dads to share their side of the story. Being a parent can be difficult at times for anyone. Whether you’re expecting or already have little one, we hope these stories can offer you insight on what worked (or didn’t work) for parents just like you. Today, we will be sharing Bruce and Lewis’s story!
My son, Lewis was born last year at 32 weeks. He was a very early baby and only weighed about 4 lbs. He was tiny and had to stay in the NICU for over a month. It was a tough time for my lady and myself - the icing on the cake was that it took us over an hour to get to the hospital. After a month, we got to bring our son home, and he weighed only 5 pounds, so the best option was for him to breastfeed. He breastfed up until he was over a year old and then transitioned to drinking out of bottles and sippy cups.
We didn't want to switch to traditional formulas on the market because we weren’t sure of the ingredients that some companies put in their recipe. My wife came across Kabrita while researching online.
When we were transitioning Lewis from nursing to bottles at first, we were using coconut milk/water. He loved his coconut water so much. We never gave him any whole milk. My wife and I don't think babies or even people, in general, should drink milk from a cow - this can lead to complications in the digestive tract, growth, and the smell of coming out is just awful. We continued with coconut milk/water for a while, but no matter how much our son loved it, he was always under in his percentile. We needed to have a goat milk formula to help my son's growth and to help him wean away from nursing.
When my wife first mentioned Kabrita’s Goat Milk Formula, my first reaction was, “goat milk and coconut milk taste nothing alike, how is Lewis going to take it?” I am an executive chef, and I love goat cheese and milk, but I didn't acquire a taste until I was in my twenties. I went online and got my first sample, made a bottle, and my son loved it!
He loved it from the first bottle, and we have been using it ever since. He transitioned to the formula like he had been drinking it his entire life.
My favorite thing about Kabrita’s formula is that it heats up well and how easy it is to clean his bottles after. I even had Amazon auto-ship it to my house recently. I love this product!
I love Kabrita and all of their products. If you can create some kind of goat milk gummy or yogurt gummy that would be awesome!
Kabrita Goat Milk Formula is an excellent alternative to cow’s milk when it comes time to supplement breastfeeding and wean your baby. Goat’s milk protein forms a softer, smaller and looser curd in the stomach, and is broken down more quickly than cow’s milk protein, making it naturally easy to digest.
