If my children are lactose intolerant and can't tolerate cow's milk, they should be able to take goat's milk, correct? Or no?

  • Yes...lactose is the kind of sugar in sows milk. You could also give them lactaid (thats what I drink, its in the same area of the store as the regular milk)

  • My son was lactose intolerant but he outgrew it around the age of 4. I bought him "LACTAID" and that worked fine for him.I dont know anything about Goats milk though....never tried it.

  • My son was born in 1988, he had a Intolerance for milk- He spent almost 5 months in the Children's Hospital & almost died due to it- They ended up having to put in a Life Line b/c it got so bad that he could not tolerant Anything- He was literally Starving to death- Back then they didn't know as much about it as they do now- Anyway, they finally tried this formula called: Pregestimil- It was the Grossest Stuff that looked like Seaweed & smelled Terrible but, i will always be So Thankful that they found that Miracle for my son- it Saved his Life! He is now 22 & other than the scars from his Life Line you would never know how sick he was from a Intolerance to Milk- Before trying New things, Talk to your kids Ped.; many types of Formula or Milk can do more damage- Ask about Pregestimil- It might be your answer! Wishing you lots of luck!
