Goat Milk Formula: Simple Ingredients

This recipe was created by Joe Stout a graduate of both Washington State University and the University of Bridgeport. Joe has both a bachelors of science and masters of science in human nutrition and he has gone to great lengths to ensure that this homemade formula recipe is fully in compliance with the baby formula nutrient requirements of the 1980 Infant Formula Act. Using just 6 simple ingredients and 4 “once-per-day” ingredients, this formula can be made in just minutes.

What is the recipe for this goat milk formula?

(Note: The proportions listed are for making an 8 oz. bottle.)

Directions: Fill the bottle up with 5 oz. very hot water. Add ghee and wait for it to melt. Add milk powder, lactose, sunflower oil, grapeseed oil, molasses and any other once-per-day ingredients (vitamins, colostrum, DHA, except probiotics). Shake well. When contents are well mixed, add cold water so that the total volume reaches 8 ounces. Shake well again. Lastly add probiotics (to ensure their viability). Shake well one last time.

*Once per day ingredients

How long will each ingredient last in this Goat Milk Recipe kit?

This is one of the most frequently asked questions and the answer is “It depends.” It depends primarily on how much you actually feed your baby. We have based our Nutrient Database on parents feeding their little ones 30 fl oz of formula per day. This may be high for some of you. Maybe you are only feeding 2 bottles per day, maybe more…

How much do you plan to feed your little one?

We’ve created this “coverage chart” that can help answer this question. The chart details how many days the formula kit will cover if you feed you baby 2 bottles, 3 bottles, or 4 bottles. In this case 1 “bottle” is equal to 8 fl oz. of the prepared formula. Based on this data we can see that by only feeding 2 bottles per day you will need more goat milk powder and goat milk lactose within 16 days of receiving your kit. If you are feeding 4 bottles per day, you will need your goat milk powder and lactose ingredients in 8 days.

Goat Milk Formula Refill Pack

If you are confident the Goat Milk Formula Recipe will work for you would like to stock up and save, then we recommend adding the Goat Milk Formula Refill Pack which will save you an additional 10%. Because the Whole Goat Milk and Goat Milk Lactose are the main base in the Homemade Goat Milk Recipe, they run out pretty quickly (see above chart). If you are feeding twins or just want to ensure you don’t run out within 2 weeks, this convenient is the perfect addition to add. The refill bundle includes:

  • 4 Whole Milk
  • 4 Goat Milk Lactose
  • 10 oz. Goat Milk Ghee.

This refill bundle normally would cost $164.55 but if you include it in your order, you can save 10% than if you bought the components individually. Buying it in bulk saves you cash, time, shipping, and ensures that you don’t run out when it matters most!

Goat Milk Recipe Success!

“Due to several different reasons we were forced to supplement our newborn daughter from 3 days old. She became very rigid and “board-like” while on regular formula, she start to fuss when we put her knees to her belly and seemed irritable.  We decided to put her on the goats milk formula starting at 5 weeks old. We ordered the Goat Milk Formula Kit and after just 24 hrs it was as though we were given our newborn back. She is much easier to console, not near as rigid and will even fall asleep in our arms! Clearly the contents of the goats milk formula is very similar to breast milk. Thank you for giving us the ability to really enjoy our newborn! – Rachel in New Hampshire


I recently purchased the kit, and I am currently on day 11 of using it. My son had been through FOUR other formulas, and none of them took care of his reflux. Since we switched to the goat milk, we have been very pleased to see a massive decrease in his reflux. It is not completely gone, but I am extremely pleased with the results thus far. Other than my son feeling better in general, I must say the best thing about this formula is the fact that I know exactly what is in it. I highly recommend this product and this company. – Kristen in North Carolina


I want to use this formula for – insert age here. Can I do this?

Interestingly enough when I first developed this formula I was recommended parents hold off until baby was a few months old. However, we have been constantly updating and improving the formula and have had such overwhelmingly great feedback for all ages between newborn and 1 year that I feel comfortable recommending the formula to all ages. I never get tired of saying this though, keep your doctor in the loop.

Do I use the multivitamins/probiotics DHA or Colostrum in every bottle I make?

No. Just include those nutrients in one bottle per day and your baby will receive his/her needed vitamins and probiotics.

I thought goat milk was low in folate and vitamin B12?

You are right. (good job!) That is why we add the multivitamin powder.

The directions on the milk powder says I should use 2 scoops but your recipe only calls for one. Why is that?

A baby under 12 months old still has developing kidneys. Straight, undiluted “full strength” goat milk powder uses two scoops. There is simply too much protein and naturally occurring sodium in that amount of milk powder for the maturing kidney’s of a baby to process. Therefore we reduce the amount of milk powder to reduce the amount of protein. We then increase the amount of carbohydrates to make up for what we’ve taken out.

Is my baby getting enough iron with this formula?

Yes and here is why. When a baby is born full term they usually have a 6 month supply of iron that they have stored up while still in the womb. Therefore, from 0-6 months, the iron requirement for infants is only .27 mg/day. After six months however, the requirement jumps up to 11 mg for babies between 7 -12 months and then drops back down to 7 mg/day for toddlers 1-3 years of age. (The iron RDA won’t go back up to 11mg/day until your son or daughter is a teenager.) The formula that I created will deliver 0.5mg iron/100 calories of formula. Usually by the time a baby gets to 6 months, they begin eating a variety of solid foods and as long as parents are careful to include iron rich foods (winter squash, sweet potato etc.) along with vitamin C rich fruits and vegetables (vitamin C assists with iron absorption) supplementing with iron drops shouldn’t be necessary. However if you choose to supplement with iron drops remember that often these can cause constipation.

My baby just started the formula and loves it! He seems constipated though. Should I be worried?

It is very common for slight constipation to occur when switching to formula. There are several easy fixes that will help the transition. First, give them time to adjust on their own. The digestive system of a infant does not react as quickly as a mature digestive system to changes in diet and sometimes all the baby needs is a little more time to regulate on their own. If however it seems that they need a little help you can do one of two things. First, add less milk powder to the formula. Instead of using 1 scoop per bottle use 3/4 of a scoop and let the formula be a bit watered down for a day or two. This will usually clear things up and then you can go back to the regular recipe. Another trick is to add a generous amount of blackstrap molasses to the formula, blackstrap molasses is a natural laxative. The recipe calls for 1/8 of a teaspoon of molasses but feel free to use double, triple or even quadruple that for a short period of time to help clear up the constipation.

The bottle keeps getting clogged when I use the once daily ingredients and my baby and I are both frustrated, what do we do?

When it comes to clogging, the issue is typically the colostrum. We grind the colostrum as fine as we can, but sometimes it has a hard time getting through smaller bottle nipples, especially for newborns. We have been told that the Dr. Brown’s bottles are the worst bottles for clogging, and that Aventi and Mam bottles seem to work better, but it may depend on the bottle nipple size. Sometimes going up a nipple size, if it is safe for your little one, is enough to do the trick. Pre-grinding the colostrum in a mortar and pestle may be helpful. Ultimately the colostrum is an optional ingredient, so you can leave it out or mix it into baby food when your child is old enough to eat solids. Some parents mix a small amount of formula with the colostrum (or other once daily ingredients) and use an oral syringe to gently squeeze it into the side of the mouth.

If I am breastfeeding and supplementing with this, do I still need to include the once daily items?

This is totally up to you. We recommend that we provide baby with the most nutrient dense food possible and therefore recommend adding the once daily items.

Wonderful Alternative

I love knowing that I'm giving my child the best option for him. No folic acid, quality ingredients, and no constipated transition. Making the dry recipe is a breeze and makes it just as easy as store bought. The once per day ingredients can be tricky though. Our little guy needs those syringe fed, thus the missing star.

Love it!

After searching high and low for the best goat milk formula, I discovered this recipe and kit from Mt. Capra and I'm so thankful! Wish I had known about this with my last little one when my milk dried up due to pregnancy. Thank you Mt. Capra!

Seriously the best

Best formula!! My baby had colic and acid reflux. This has transformed her tremendously.

WE began using Mt. Capra Goat milk formula when my youngest daughter was not gaining weight and could not tolerate any other formula. It has been amazing she is now a healthy and very happy almost 1 year old. We found out she has a cow milk protein allergy so she will continue with the toddler formula. We are so glad to have found Mt. Capra. We recommend it to many people as a mom of 10 I get asked about this stuff a lot.

Good formula but having issues with the one a day ingredients not dissolving

I saw in earlier reviews that this was happening to others and I have tried the techniques they recommended but it still does not dissolve and baby and I both get frustrated. I think this is something that needs to be addressed.

Hi S.G. thanks for providing feedback on our GMF kit. The issue is typically the colostrum. We grind it as fine as we can, but sometimes it has a hard time getting through smaller bottle nipples, especially for newborns. We have been told that the Dr. Brown's bottles are the worst bottles for clogging, and that Aventi and Mam bottles seem to work better, but it may depend on the bottle nipple size. Ultimately the colostrum is an optional ingredient, so you can leave it out or mix it into baby food when your child is old enough to eat solids. Some parents mix a small amount of formula with the colostrum (or other once daily ingredients) and use an oral syringe to gently squeeze it into the side of the mouth. Hopefully that information helps.
