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 realparents 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 Rachel's story, and why she chose Kabrita Goat Milk Toddler Formula to wean her son!

How did you first hear of Kabrita?

I was searching for a cow milk alternative for my son to transition to at 1 year old, as needed. I came across Kabrita in my search and have been so grateful!

Why did your family have a need for goat milk formula?

My son started showing colic-like reactions to dairy as an infant. I removed cow's milk from my diet and saw a world of difference. As my son got older, I knew Whole cow's milk was suggested to transition to at 1 year but wanted to see if there were other options that would be gentler on his tiny developing tummy. Kabrita's Goat Milk Toddler Formula has been the perfect happy medium for us!

How did your child take/transition to Kabrita?

Graham loves his bottle. He feels like such a big boy when drinking from a big boy bottle, which makes my mama heart feel so great in knowing that he is enjoying the Kabrita Goat Milk Toddler formula.

What do you think of Kabrita’s flavor?

I did personally try the Toddler Formula and honestly was surprised at how similar to cow's milk it tastes. I have cut cow's milk from my diet since my son was 1 month old, so I thought I wouldn't like it to be honest. I was expecting more of a goat cheese taste, but it is actually very smooth and comparable to cow's milk in flavor.

Is there anything else you’d like to add or share?

I'm grateful to have found a mom led company that I can support and know put all the time and effort into researching and developing a product that is gentle on tiny tummies while still promoting solid development in our little ones.
