Many parents give their babies goat formula because they are allergic to cow’s milk proteins, or want to prevent allergies.

But in fact, if a baby is diagnosed with a cow’s milk protein allergy, they usually can’t drink goat’s milk formula either. Although goat milk contains less alpha casein, it is less allergenic. But cross-sensitization between goat’s milk and cow’s milk is common, and about 95 percent of children allergic to cow’s milk proteins are also allergic to goat’s milk.

Therefore, if the baby is diagnosed with a cow’s milk protein allergy, especially a more serious allergy, not only cow’s milk formula, but also goat’s milk formula.

Infant formula is a highly standardized product, with a narrow range of permissible levels for each nutrient. Regardless of the composition of the goat milk itself, the composition of the cow’s milk itself, they will eventually be transformed into “infant formulas” that are all very close in nutritional content.
