Every parent’s feeding experience is as unique as their baby. While the journey may be easy for some, others may struggle. Real Parent Story is a series on our blog where we ask real parents to share their feeding stories. Whether you’re expecting or already have little one, we hope these stories can offer you insight into what worked (or didn’t work) for parents just like you.
Today, we will be sharing Kate’s story on supplementing with Kabrita Goat Milk Formula!
How did you first hear of Kabrita?
I extensively researched and compared different formulas during my pregnancy so I could be prepared if we had to supplement. I only wanted the best!
Why did your family have a need for goat milk formula?
Once I started back at work, my schedule didn’t allow enough time for pumping quite enough to meet his needs, which I think is a common problem for the modern working mom. I wanted a formula that was close enough to my breast milk as possible and that led me to Kabrita Goat Milk Formula.
If related to symptoms being experienced by your child, can you describe them? And also describe how drinking Kabrita may have helped with those?
My son had horrible silent reflux, almost a bottles worth of spit up a day, and was so gassy, so the easily digestible goat milk protein was the best fit. He continued to have some spit up until 6 months, but it helped tremendously!
If related to your need to supplement with or switch to formula, please describe why you chose to do so and why Kabrita seemed like a good solution?
As close to breast milk as possible was my goal, and goat milk formula was the answer as a supplement to my own, since I simply could not produce enough.
Did the ‘European quality’ element have an influence in your decision to try Kabrita?
European Foods' standards are fortunately for them, much higher than the US. So following along that guideline was extremely important to me.
How did your child take/transition to Kabrita?
Without a hitch, and I was so thankful to get to skip the drama of him learning to digest something new. We didn’t experience the constipation issues we warned of when introducing formula.
What do you think of Kabrita’s flavor?
Well, my son seems to not care if I’m giving him breast milk, or Kabrita-and I’d say that’s a major win for a formula to taste so closely to my own.
What is your favourite thing about Kabrita Formula?
It’s so easy to mix quickly with an excited baby impatiently waiting, no clumping!
Is there anything else you’d like to add or share?
Thank you for doing your due diligence to contribute to a high-quality formula into the mix since there are already endless options of not so great ones. Moms like me love you for it!
