Y did you want your gal to take goat's milk power??

Actually now they ok with any brand, any stage type of milk (kind mommies blessed us with satchets n tins).. I give them infant formula too but they complained bland thus mixed 1 scoop infant and 2 scoop Dugro/Nespray..
Alythea just started Pedaisure as she's light, only 12.8kg and 3yo ..

I heard do not give goat milk or soy based milk unless it's really necessary.
My cousin who BF her 2 sons, ended up cnt continue BF cus they're are allergy to it. Now can only drink soy based milk..
which means they put in what they know breastmlk has...but they have yet to discover alot of goodies that breastmilk has....
that's y we introduce solids at 6mths n it must start replacing milk cos baby's nutritional needs r starting to change....milk is poor source of iron, even if it has 'added' iron in it....cos iron cannot be absorbed when calcium is present n milk has alot of calcium....
supplements refer to food other than milk for bbs
It's actually not referring to breast milk, but rather that healthy, full-term babies have enough iron stores in their bodies to last for at least the first six months. The current research indicates that a baby's iron stores should last between six and twelve months, depending upon the baby.
Infants who are breastfed exclusively for periods of 6-9 months have been shown to maintain normal hemoglobin values and normal iron stores.
The iron in breastmilk is better absorbed than that from other sources. The vitamin C and high lactose levels in breastmilk aid in iron absorption. ?
Iron Source Percentage of Iron Absorbed
breastmilk (~50 - 70%)
iron-fortified cow milk formula (~3 - 12%)
iron-fortified soy formula (less than 1% - 7%)
iron-fortified cereals (4 - 10%)
cow's milk (~10%)
Do note that the amount of iron absorbed from any food depends greatly upon the milk source of iron (eg, human vs cow), type of iron compound in the food, the body's need for iron, and the other foods eaten at the same meal.
The introduction of iron supplements and iron-fortified foods, particularly during the first six months, reduces the efficiency of baby's iron absorption.
The supplements they are referring to are other foods that are high in iron. Eg. Greens, poultry, sweet potatoes, tofu, egg yolks, fish, grains etc.
Hope it helps.

Just changed dear son FM to Similac.
Was on Dumex at 1st.
This 3days he only drank 80ml of his milk. (4hrs interval)
So brought Similac ytd night.
Intending to change his FM tonite.
Should I just change his FM.
OR should I start by mixing 2 scoops of dumex and 1 scoop of similac?
Which would be better.
have tried the sample pack of the goats milk that i got...but my gal have red spot around her mouth....check with the gp, he say my gal may have lactose intolerant. but when she is born, the hospital give her nan milk and she has no problem ...now lost dont know what to do...
My baby is 1 yr old already and I still BF directly plus his solid food. Do I have to start giving him part FM?
