I'm just shocked. 5 months old? And she said they aren't giving him any solid foods yet. (Baby food) so where the f**k does she think her kids gonna get his nutrients from?

I can't imagine goat's milk would be much easier on an infant's stomach...

Uh she's full of it if she said her doctor told her to put a 5 month old on cow's milk, now goats milk yes.

She said. And in her exact words.



"Vitamin D milk"



I'm sure it's not goat milk. :/

I sure as hell wouldn't give it to my own kids, barring some horrible post apocalyptic wasteland situation. But apparently it is closer to human milk than something like cows milk, easier to break down. Not ideal, but easier. Apparently in the days before formula it was often a supplementation option. Now I don't know anyone who's done it personally, nor do I know all the details of why it's supposedly easier to break down, but I have encountered it more than once in reading and have a few hippy dipper friends who deliberately introduce it prior to cows milk for that reason.

I feel like she's making that up to be a cheap-ass mom and stop buying formula.

This was my first thought. She might be using the 'well my doctor said so' excuse so people don't b***h at her for it.
