Hi mamas,<br>
So Just wanted to get your opinions about this. DD is breastfed - we are doing BLW and she eats some regular food a few times a day - mostly fish, fruits and veggies, eggs, quinoa, and bread. She nurses every 2-3 hours both day and night and seems rather satisfied with all she has to eat, both at the breast and with solid foods.<br><br>
I drink goat's milk (from goats I know) and she seems rather interested in it. Is it okay to give her some? I would certainly not replace any feeds with it - just give her a little when I am having a glass. I have heard that goat's milk is the most similar in composition to human breastmilk and might be easier for little ones to digest than cow dairy products.<br><br>
Any thoughts? Experience?<br>
Thanks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

a few sips from your glass is fine, but I wouldn't give anymore than that.

I think it's fine to give a little goat milk. We just got goats and will be milking them in 5-6 months. I plan on giving goat milk, cheese, cream, yogurt, kefir, etc to my kids.
