We are supplementing with goat milk fo rour four month old while I am working on rebuilding my supply after some nursing difficulties. We tried formula and found it just didn't fit our family very well, and baby Maia spit it up all the time. She likes the goat milk, and keeps it down very well. However, there is only one store in our city that carries goat milk, and it is from a small, high quality local dairy. The store often sells out of pateurized goat milk, and I'm wondering if I can feed raw goat milk to the baby or if it needs to be boiled first.
The clerk at the store said that most people who give goat milk to their babies use the raw, but I'm not sure it's safe, and I'm finding alot of contradictory stuff online (surprize surprize).
Can anyone elighten me?
