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 Deanna's story about switching to Kabrita Goat Milk Toddler Formula
How did you first hear of Kabrita?
I first found out about Kabrita when I was researching goat milk formulas for my daughter.
Why did your family have a need for goat milk formula?
My daughter had very bad reflux as a small baby. We began switching her from mainstream formula to Kabrita Goat Milk Formula when she was about four months old.
If related to symptoms being experienced by your child, can you describe them? And also describe how drinking Kabrita may have helped with those?
Kabrita helped calm our daughter’s stomach issues and the reflux is well under control. Kabrita was much easier for her to digest and she seemed much more comfortable drinking it than she did on the “regular” formula.
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?
My husband and I are older parents who have started over - our own son is grown and on his own now, and we have adopted a baby girl. Breastfeeding her was not an option, so she needed to drink formula. She had terrible reflux on a mainstream cow-milk-based formula. As dairy goat farmers ourselves, we knew we wanted to switch to a goat-milk-based formula, and discovered Kabrita. We’ve been very happy with the quality, taste, and smell of Kabrita, and our daughter really likes it. The reflux is well under control now.
Did the ‘European quality’ element have an influence on your decision to try Kabrita?
Honestly, this didn’t have a lot of influence on me, so probably not something I can talk about much.
How did your child take/transition to Kabrita?
The transition to Kabrita was smooth and easy. We switched her very gradually and all went well.
What do you think of Kabrita’s flavor?
I did taste Kabrita. While it is a sweeter taste than plain goat milk, it’s a far more palatable option than mainstream cow-milk-based formula (which I also tasted). The cow formula smelled - and tasted - a little like baby vomit smells, but the Kabrita smells pleasant.
What is your favorite thing about Kabrita Formula?
I like knowing that I’m giving my baby an easily digestible food that gives her the nutrition she needs without making her tummy upset.
