Constipation, includes cows milk
Our baby hated this formula, terrible constipation and stomach issues, also this is false advertising as it has cows milk in the recipe, very poor product. I'm switching to a better brand.
I was very excited to try KARICARE Goat Milk Stage 3. I really like that it supports Immune system, growth and development in toddlers.So we found Karicare Goat formula gentle on the tummy and easier on digestion. I’m glad she didn’t refuse to drink and was quiet happy with the taste. No allergy reaction, no bloating, no other side affects. I believe the protein in goats milk is smaller and easier for toddlers to digest. It's a bit more $$ than regular formula, but it's well worth it. And I tell my friends/family thar goat milk is different fr...om cow, we can digest it much easier, and it is the same for babies. The powder do not have the strong smell light normal goat product, it just smell nearly the same like cow milk. Karicare goatmilk is so beneficial for the Toddler’s cognitive development. The formula is very easy to prepare and easy to dissolve. My daughter like the taste so I’m really relaxed. Karicare toddler Goat's milk stage 3 is a safe alternative to cow's milk. It would be a good choice if a toddler is allergic to cow's milk. It says that there are 16 vitamins and minerals so Im definitely liking it for my daughter. I didn’t notice any constipation, digestion or taste issues. She was happy and active so thumbs up from a happy Mummy.

Perfect ! Great on little tummies
This is by far the best baby formula for our child. Its gentle and keeps him full. Used in conjunction with bm.
A bit expensive and sometimes hard to find but overall very good.

Amazing for babies
Best for babies as a backup for Bfeeding who had a slight cows milk intolerance.
For infants at high risk of allergy or confirmed mild to moderate cows milk and/ or soy protein allergy. I went through about 4 formulas till I found Karicare soy and it is great. I found Karicare even smelt better! thinner and was heaps better for constipation
Recommended by most pediatrician.

Miss Leading and False Advertising!
It was recommended that our precious boy has goats milk vs cow due to the protein in goats milk being easier broken down.
Unfortunately after putting our trust in this product I was extremely disappointed to find out that they still put cows milk in this product and then advertise it as goats milk!
Read the ingredients list and my recommendation is buy and support the other brands that do not mislead there valuable customers with there most important newest family members.
I will never use another one of your products again in my life and will ensure that I share my story with as many Mum and Dads.

Good formula if your baby can't handle cow's milk
I was attracted to Karicare Goat's milk formula since bubs wasn't handling cow's milk well. It had minimal ingredients and baby liked the taste. Only downside is that it can have a tendency towards constipating baby.

There's a reason the Chinese want it.
I had issues with breastfeeding because of stress so I couldn't increase my supply, my little one started not putting on enough weight. Ended up moving her onto this formula because I've always known goat milk is best and my little one started putting on weight really well again. So happy with this formula just wish it was easier to find. But there's a reason the Chinese want it.

Good for baby
It was recommended to me by my sister. The protein in goats milk is smaller and easier for infants to digest. I've never had any issues with this formula. It's a bit more $$$ than regular formula, but it's well worth it.

Only formula baby likes
My baby has a suspected CMPI but does well on this formula. Gentle on her tummy and bub seems very satisfied with it. Easy to mix with no clumps unlike some formulas. Doesn’t taste too bad either haha.

Switched bub to this formula to help with something gentle on her gassy tummy turned out to be worse. She became so constipated with big dry poo causing a lot of distress.

It is perfect for a picky baby
It is said that goat milk powder helps the baby to better digest and absorb nutrients and enhance the baby's resistance. Another advantage of goat milk powder is that goat milk powder is not easy to cause allergic reactions in the baby, because goat milk can relieve allergies caused by most milk proteins. Therefore, for a picky eater baby, this is a very good choice, and there is no particularly obvious taste after the milk powder is brewed, the baby likes to drink.

So far so good
I really didn't want to use formula to feed my bub but wasn't making enough milk so I wanted to at least get something that would be good for my baby.
So far bubs doesn't mind it. He definitely prefers my breastmilk over it but he doesn't reject it. I wanted to make sure it was going to be gentle on his developing belly so went with goat over cows milk. He looks happy and full and generally falls straight asleep.
The formula is really easy to prepare but I would assume other formulas would be as easy. Just water, formula and shake.
I don't know if I will purchase it again yet as I'm hoping my milk increases.
- Goat 3
My son really love this karicare goat milk 3. He used to refuse to drink other brand's baby formula. After i changed to this one, he really loved it. It was good opportunity to give a try of your baby refuse to drink baby formula. It also not too sweet.
Questions & Answers
Hi ,My daughter has corn allergy is karicare goat 2 safe for her ?
The Karicare Goat stage 2 product does not contain any ingredients derived from corn. Please feel free to get in contact with the Nutricia Careline on 1800 438 500 if you have further queries. Kind regards, Saskia
Has the ingredient changed since the package changed for caricature goat 3? I twins use to drink it, but they refuse to drink it now.
They sure did! I had an old tin and the new tin and did a comparison of both, new tins have more fat in them and few other ingredients changed and they reduced amount you give too, my bub was constipated and hungry
We have adjusted the formulation of the Karicare Goat 3 milk and these changes are reflected in the Nutrition Information Panel (NIP) and ingredients list. The proportion of Goat milk solids has changed and this has altered the amounts of some naturally occurring components of the milk – the fat, carbohydrate, magnesium and iodine levels. We have also made minor adjustments to some of the vitamins and minerals in line with our other toddler milks and have also decreased the protein level. Your little one's may be sensitive to the difference in taste, therefore it can be helpful to mix the old product with the new product in the same bottle for a few days to help transition. Please feel free to give Nutricia Careline a call on 1800 438 500 (AUS) or 0800 438 500 (NZ) to discuss further if you would like. Kind regards, Saskia
