Okay so you've got a child drinking milk every few hours.

HMMMM HOW LONG OF A WINDOW DOES THE BABY HAVE TO ABSORB IRON, OF WHICH THE REST OF THEIR DIET CONTAINS ZERO AND MILK CONTAINS NEAR ZERO?

How are you this dense?

Drinking what milk? You have cow milk on your mind so you can't be objective. I know you ignorant to the difference

There have been numerous studies comparing cow milk with goat milk in the last few years. Nearly all researchers have concluded that goat milk has properties that can help in prevention of diseases like anemia and bone demineralization. Goat milk has been found to have far more health benefits than cow milk.

Goat milk is much readily digestible than cow milk because size of fat molecules is one fifth compared to cow milk. The fat content is higher in goat milk. Smaller size of fat molecules produces a more homogeneous mixture of fat in the milk. Glycerol ethers are found in higher amount in goat milk, which is important for the nutrition of a new born baby. Goat milk has more protein per serving and also has higher levels of essential amino acids.

Goat milk also has lower levels of orotic acid that helps in prevention of fatty liver syndrome in infants. There is no need for separation of cream in goat milk because of smaller fat molecules. Scientists believe that goat milk is closer to human milk than cow milk, which is why it is easily absorbed into human bodies.

Because of the presence of more chlorine and fluorine in goat milk, it has germicidal properties. Fluorine also helps in prevention of diabetes. Somehow, goats are immune to tuberculosis and this is why their milk is used for the treatment of this disease in many countries.

Goat milk has the ability to soften the intestinal tract and has been found to be helpful in curing constipation. Some scientists believe that goat milk has anti carcinogenic properties because of the presence of higher carotene (vitamin A).

Goat milk has more vitamin A, B3, and B6, though it has lower amounts of B9, B12 and B2 vitamins than cow milk. Goat milk has higher amounts of calcium, phosphorus, potassium, iron, copper, manganese. Scientists believe goat milk to be closer in structure to human milk than cow milk.

The digestive utilization of iron, however, is similar for the goat-milk diet and a standard diet, and in both cases superior to that based on cow milk.

No animal milk has sufficient iron for an infant. Wow.

1865 Justus Von Liebig’s Soup for Infants was introduced to market. Liebig’s formula was made of cow’s milk, wheat, malt flour and potassium bicarbonate. Trust was in short supply for quite a while so it did not take off quickly. However it did take off.

The first commercial brands found their way to market in the 1970's. The prior 25 years before that places like in the UK used dried, powdered skimmed cow's milk.

Without wet nurses when the mother milk dried up the baby died without goat or cows milk. Weaning protocols were much different as well. Introduction of eggs in 6 weeks was not uncommon in the 40's and 50's. In the 40s and 50s, babies would be given small amounts of solids early on.

Even babies that are exclusively breastfeed, need vitamin supplementation.
