I thought babies can’t have goat milk under one year old.
Neither cow nor goat’s milk are suitable as a sole source of nutrition for babies – breastmilk or an iron-fortified infant formula should be used under one year of age. If there is no risk of a milk allergy, most babies can begin to experiment with small amounts of dairy as a complementary food around 6 months of age, in consultation with their healthcare provider.
Can I add breastmilk to make the porridge?
Kabrita Goat Milk Porridge is designed to be mixed with water. We recommend following the preparation directions on our packaging. If you desire to add breastmilk to the porridge, please consult with your healthcare provider.
How many servings can my baby have in a day?
We recommend 1 serving daily, however, we encourage you to consult with your healthcare provider to review your little one’s unique nutrition needs.
How much should my baby eat for his first serving?
Each baby is unique. You can consider starting with half the serving size (50ml of water + 1.5 tbsp of cereal) and increase to a full serving size over a few feedings (100ml of water + 3 tbsp of cereal). It’s always best to consult with your healthcare provider to review your little one’s unique nutrition needs.
