Goat Milk and Allergies - What You Need to Know
Every parent knows that their child’s life journey is unique and special. Here at Bubs, we are committed to providing vital nutrition for little bodies, so they can grow, flourish and have the very best start in those critical early years. However, we also recognise that because each child has unique needs, and some have sensitive tums and allergies.
So, when we’re asked if goat milk is suitable for kids with allergies, there’s more to it than just a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’.
Can you drink goat milk if you’re allergic to cow milk?
It is important to note, if your child has been clinically diagnosed with a cow milk protein allergy, it is best to check with your health care professional first, as Goat Milk may not be the right solution, given it still does contain milk proteins. If your child (or even you) is sensitive to cow milk, we’re sure you’ve experienced symptoms such as wind, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, loose stools, reflux or even a rash. Cow milk can be a little hard on the gut sometimes, which is why goat milk can be a naturally gentle, easy to digest alternative.
