    Goat's Milk vs sleeping

    Hi, my lo (6 months) is having goat's milk (karihome) for the last 4 days because of nasty eczema, which I thought she's allergic to cow's milk (C&G). Since then her sleeping pattern is terrible. She wakes up every 2 hours in the early hours (1am, 3am and 5/6am) and I feed her again about 90-120ml of milk (1am/3am). Is goat's milk less filling to cow's milk? Is it OK to switch to soy milk now? Her next check up is on the 26th of Oct. I can't wait that long to endure with her lack of sleep. Thanks in advance for any inputs.

    How is your little one doing now? Did u switch base on pediatrician advice? In UK they don't recommend goats formula for babies.... And goats milk protein is actually similar to cows milk protein so its not a good choice to switch to if u suspect cows milk allergy..... Soy might be a better choice.... Anyway best to discuss with your doc before switching

    Hi there, yes the nurses at the clinique said it's ok to switch. Ive read about the UK concern on goat's milk and I think I might switch her back to the original milk (cow's milk) considering there's no changes with her ezcema.
