Benefits of Goat Milk and why I’m using it for my Little One

August 13, 2019

I first heard about Kabrita at the Big City Mom’s “Biggest Baby Shower” event in Chicago.  I had been talking about using goat’s milk vs. cow’s milk with some of my health savvy friends and have heard that it was closer to breast milk vs. cow’s milk. Needless to say, I was intrigued. When I ran into the Kabrita booth, I was excited to learn more. Here are some benefits of Kabrita Goat milk as well as why I’m using it for my little one!

Thank you Kabrita for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are my own.

Benefits of goat milk vs. cow milk.

  1. Easier to digest.  This is because the proteins in goat’s milk create a smaller and softer curd in the tummy, resulting in quick and easy digestion similar to that of breast milk.  I remember my transition from breastmilk to formula and my poor babies tummy would be rock hard.  I would’ve have loved to have tried goat milk earlier because I was always thinking it was air bubbles or gas, when it could’ve easily have been his formula or milk.  
  2. It is nutrient dense. Kabrita is full of essential nutrients like protein, DHA, probiotics, and 22 vitamins and minerals, including folic acid and iron.
  3. Has fatty acids modeled after those found in breast milk.
  4. Has 6x the amount of gut supportive prebiotics.

Kabrita + my Little One.

After my Little One’s 1st birthday, we started weaning off of formula and did 50/50 formula + organic whole milk. Once we ran out of formula, we transition to 100% organic whole milk. I think we are lucky because the transition was relatively seamless. Then we were introduced to Kabrita and I was really excited to try it (because of all the reasons listed above). I was nervous that my little one would reject the rich taste of goat milk because he was finally getting used to cow’s milk.  However, we started out gradually and mixed it in with his milk and he took it like a champ. 

I love the fact that no matter if he isn’t eating much or what he should be, he is still getting all of the nutrients from Kabrita. Also, my son used to have a lot of small patches of eczema (which I sort of accepted as normal) and those have cleared up since I’ve used Kabrita.  

What I love about Kabrita.

Kabrita is non GMO, has no added colors, no artificial flavors, no hormones, no pesticides, and made with naturally easy to digest goat milk, which is closer in composition to human milk than cow’s milk.  

The only downside of using this on a regular basis is that goat’s milk is more expensive than organic cow milk.  However, if your little one is experiencing tummy issues or cow milk sensitivity, this is definitely something to try. If it helps your little one… that is priceless!  Here is a link where you can get a free 14 oz sample of Kabrita Goat milk (you just pay $8.99 for shipping and handling) + a $5 off coupon shipped directly to your house: CLICK HERE! Also, Costco sells it ($39.99/ 31.7oz) which is the cheapest I have found.

What are your thoughts? Do you know of anyone who has tried goat milk? Please message me back when you try it, curious to know what your thoughts are! Thank you for reading! xoxo, Rachael
