Had anyone tried it on their infants?

I gave brooke it today and shes not spit up. She only spit the formula. And the only reason she was given formula twice was because of being out (i didnt want te goats milk to go bad) and because my husband didnt know i had made it last night

Goats milk does not have the necessary nutrients for infant development. You can make a goats milk formula, but goats milk alone before a year isn't a good substitute for human milk.

Well, you aren't going to get many responses to your actual question because it's so risky. I fully support homemade goats milk formula as an alternative to commercial formula, but there's a reason they began modifying other mammal milk for infant consumption. Knowledge is power, I'm just sharing it. Please don't be offended.

 Every one of my kids started goats milk between 6-8 months old. My mother gave all my siblings and I goats milk from the day we were practically born. We are all still alive, kicking, and in pretty good health.
