Can’t find Goat Milk Formula? 5 tips for finding an alternative!

milk

If your baby is currently using goat milk formula you may be having a bit of trouble finding enough to keep in your pantry.  If you are in this camp, we hope that the next few lines are going to help you.

Straight out we are going to say it – we would love for you to think about Bellamy’s Organic baby formula instead.  There.  Said it.  So, lets get on with some practical tips on what you can do if your baby is currently on goat milk formula and you just can’t get any.

1. Don’t Panic! 

Changing infant formulas from goat milk based to cows milk based is nowhere near as dramatic as it sounds, particularly if you consider organic options.  In fact goat milk formula is very similar to cows milk formula:

  • Most goat milk formulas contain cows milk derived lactose
  • All goat milk formulas are standardized so that when you feed your baby it will contain very similar vitamin and mineral proportions as cows milk formulas

2. Do some research on your options

If you just can’t get any goat milk formula you may need to make the call to change to something else.  There is lots of information on the Bellamy’s blog site on the differences in formulas, goat vs cow, gold vs non- gold, omega 3 etc.  There are also plenty of other websites that give credible information on your choices.  We also highly recommend talking to your GP, child health professional or infant health nurse for advice.

3. Find out where you can buy? 

You don’t want to make a change only to find out that you can’t easily access your next choice.  Where can you buy the formula?  Can you buy online?

4. Manage the change

Any change in your baby’s diet is going to have some impact.  Your baby may be a little unsettled, their poos may change, and they may even at first refuse the change.  Just remember that just like you, when we try something for the first time things are, well different, and sometimes take a little time to adjust.  If you have any uncertainty or things just don’t seem right, make sure you see a doctor.

5. Every baby is different

Not all babies will like the same things.   You know your baby best, and together with your health professional, you are the best people to make decisions for your baby.

So, we hope that helped.  Feel free to give our fabulous Liana a call on 1800 010 460 if you have any questions.  And in case you missed it, check out our organic baby formulas if you are thinking of making a change at bellamysorganic.com.au.  We have lots, its Certified organic and Australian made.
