I had my second baby (a girl) and thought it was going to be easier as I’d done it all before and despite it being busier with two, my initial fears and lack of knowledge might make up for the extra work that two little beauties would bring. Oh how I didn’t have a clue! I used the same cows milk formula with her as I had my first, but she didn’t settle at all. Her poo (sorry to be so specific) was like cottage cheese – I went back into the hospital and they told me she was ok and that to just continue as we were. But after another day of constant cottage cheese like nappies, I went back for more help. I found the advice vague so I decided to read up on my own alternatives. I changed from brand to brand but there wasn’t much (if any) improvement. The GP said she had come across this before and suggested that I research non-cow’s milk. That’s where I stumbled across this thread on trying Nannycare Goats Milk.
I signed up and was lucky enough to be selected. At this stage, my daughter is now 7 months old – the PHN said she was in the lower percentile for her weight and that I should consider weaning her early as that might help her stomach settle. But I didn’t really want to do that. So I committed to trying Nannycare and if that didn’t work, we’d move to solid food. So we switched and I can’t believe that I didn’t do it sooner. Her stools changed immediately to a more normal type baby poo. She started to sleep for longer periods during the night and was more settled after her feed. I’m extremely grateful to have been picked for this trial – not only because it gave me the confidence to switch things up but it forced me to think differently about what I needed to give my second baby and how her journey is different to my first. From our experience, I’d highly recommend giving Nannycare a try – five stars from us.

I wanted to try goats milk for my baby as I had been reading about the benefits of it vs. regular cows milk formula. I was due to move to follow on milk for my son and decided this would be a good time to try it. My son had no health issues but his nappies were loose and I figured as the only thing he was eating was his cows formula that it was time to make a change. I had also read that the benefits of goats milk formula were greater than cows milk formula and thought he was big enough now to make the change. The key reason I wanted to change was after reading that Nannycare is soft and gentle on his little tummy (the science behind that is that the formed goats milk curds are softer than those formed by cow’s milk). I also liked the fact that Nannycare doesn’t include any non-essential ingredients something we try to avoid as a family. But it does meet all of his nutritional needs for growth such as Vitamin D and calcium. I was worried that the change would be problematic but it was seamless. I felt that he was feeding more easily/hungrily as if he was enjoying it (not science based, just my mum gut feeling). Not being gross either, but I tasted it as I was afraid it was going to be like a goats cheese strong taste but (obviously) it wasn’t – it actually tasted ‘normal’. I guess that’s why it made the switch so easy. My son’s loose nappies have all but disappeared too as he is eating nothing other than Nannycare milk, I have to attribute this to the move from cow’s milk formula to goats milk formula. He still has a nappy explosion from time to time but they are far less often and dramatic than before. He’s happy and content, and thriving, and that’s the most important thing for us. Thank you for allowing us take part in this Nannycare trial. It has given me great peace of mind to not accept commonly held opinions and advice and to seek out an alternative that suited our son.

I’m very aware of the Nannycare brand and consider them to be the OG of the goat milk baby formula world.
The brand was at the heart of developing the EU legislation that paved the way for goat formulas to become more popular and widely available.
I really like this brand because it uses non-GMO ingredients and is certified Halal which is important to our family. Unlike other cow’s milk formulas, Nannycare uses a very simple (short) list of ingredients and they do not add whey protein. The simplicity of the ingredients also means that they do not include any of the nasty stuff such as palm oils. They use fish oil as a DHA source, which we love as it’s an easy way to get DHA into the baby’s diet.
I had been using Nannycare before this trial but was ready to move to the next milk stage when I read this on Mummypages. The powder mixes easily with hot water and doesn’t leave any clumps. The baby readily accepted the change to follow on milk and guzzled their bottles.
The other consideration is that the natural oligosaccharides in goats milk are naturally present at 10 times the level of cows milk – I know from my research of what’s best for my baby, that oligosaccharides act as a prebiotic which offers a wide range of health benefits, not least a strong immune system and improved gut health.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this product to other mums. Yes, it does cost more but despite this, we felt the benefits far out weighted cost concerns especially when we are only giving it to the baby for a year or so.

We have had terrible problems with our baby’s sensitive tummy so when I saw the opportunity to try Nannycare, I jumped at the opportunity. I saw it in Tesco but hadn’t bought the products before as I was unsure about the benefits. My public health nurse also didn’t know much about it and had only suggested changing to another cow’s milk formula product.
My daughter is now big enough to move up to follow on milk so after reading up on this range and brand, and being impressed by their story, we decided to make the change from cow’s milk to goat milk formula. And boy are we glad we did.
Firstly, the changeover process was gradual. We introduced Nannycare gradually (over about a week) to give her little tummy time to adjust. We started with a small feed one day, increased to full feed in the morning the second day and then did two feeds the next day until we had changed over completely. So it was a gradual change – she accepted it from day one which I was worried about. When I think of goat’s products, I think of strong-smelling cheese but there is no cheesey smell off her bottle at all. I even tasted it myself and it was a positive (even sweet) experience.
Nannycare only have a small number of ingredients in their products which I liked because as a family, we are trying to strip back on foods that have what we think of as unnecessary added ingredients. We think that the less we give the baby, the less burden that is placed on her little developing digestive system. So keeping it simple is important to us.
After one week, I noticed that she was spitting up less than before and after two weeks, her spitting up/milky burps were nearly all completely gone.
I wish we had changed from cow’s milk formula sooner to Nannycare as it’s made a world of difference to our family life and routine. I’d give it 9 out of 10 – it loses just one point and that’s based on affordability as it is more expensive than other cows milk formulas BUT we worked out that the extra cost of feeding our daughter this milk for the next 6 months is well worth it given that she is more comfortable now with less spitting up. It’s not for ever either so we are happy to cut back on other non-essential items ourselves, so she can have the very best start to her life. Highly recommended.

Thank you very much for letting me test Nannycare Goat Based follow on Milk – I had never heard of this one before. But am now noticing it in the shops, although as a creature of habit, I probably wouldn’t have immediately tried it.
My little on is 7 months old and I was looking to move her on to something else, as we have already started weaning, so it’s a good time to do it.
She has a tendency to be wakeful at night, which is part of the reason why we’re already weaning, as nurse said she might be hungry. Since starting the weaning diet and included the follow on milk I’ve found her to be more restful. She’s also prone to having sick burps, but I’ve found much less so on this milk. She has in fact, taken to it very well with no issues.
I never considered changing her to goats milk, but having see that it is a more gentle milk than cows milk, it makes sense that she would be more settled on it, so I’m glad to have had the opportunity to give it a go.
It’s really good to know that Nannycare Follow on Milk contains all the important increditents for my little one, and that it retains the natural milk fat in it’s full cream formula including the essential fat babies needand removing the need for palm oil.
The formula itself was easy to make up and mixed well. I would definitely buy it again and I woudl recommend.
