Goat Milk Formula: Easy to make

This recipe is super easy to make and can easily be fit into the busy lifestyle of a mom or dad with new little ones. We have created an entire website dedicated to educating those wanting to know more about the science behind the goat milk formula as well as answers to many of the most frequently asked questions parents have when starting out on this formula recipe. 

Goat Milk Formula: Simple Ingredients

This recipe was created by Joe Stout who 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 this formula can be made in just minutes and nearly half of the required ingredients are only used one time per day. Check out the top 7 reasons you should be making your own formula at home and check out just how easy it is to make this formula by watching the video below.

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 Formula kit?

This is one of the most frequently asked questions and the answer is, like a lot of things, “It depends.”

While this may seem obvious, 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 a 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?

I’ve created this “coverage chart” that I hope can help answer this question. Basically 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 and 18 days of receiving your kit if you are only feeding 2 bottles per day. If you are feeding 4 bottles per day, you will need your goat milk powder and lactose ingredients in 8 days and 9 days respectively.

Baby Formula 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 formula 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


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.

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

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

A baby under 12 months old still has developing kidneys. Straight, “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 handle. 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.

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.

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.

    Looks like an excellent system! We keep goats ( Nubians/Boer/Nigerian Dwarf) for our own consumption of their milk-Though we were very interested in this system for its broken down consistency- For our newborn baby girl- Edie. We will be transitioning her onto this from Breast milk and will report back on how it works for us- Thanks!

    I had used Mt Capra milk to make our own infant formula when i wasn’t able to supply enough breastmilk for her and after finally figuring out she was allergic to cows milk formulas. It was a very difficult time emotionally for our family. After we discovered the high quality goat milk that Mt Capra offered and a recipe, we we so relieved to find our daughter on the right track! Now that you offer a formula kit I’m even more pleased. Our second child is due in 4 months and if breast feeding doesn’t work out again I won’t be so stressed knowing a healthy natural option is so readily available! Thank you for providing such a healthy nutritious option to cows milk for our family.

    I was super impressed on how quick the mt.capra family sent my goat milk formula kit along with my order of lactose and milk powder! I ordered everything on Friday and it was here at my door by Monday! The recipe is super easy to follow, I love that it’s way more natural and organic and I know what’s going into my child’s body. My 5 month old was using a store bought formula for the last 2 months but I never liked the idea of that, I wanted something more like my breast milk. So far he’s drinking it well but I will admit when he spits up, the smell is a lot more harsh…I’ll keep you all updated on how the first week of his formula change from store bought to mt.capra formula goes:-) thank you

    Love this kit! I was very worried about what formula to feed my daughter after I knew I had to supplement after exclusively breastfeeding for 6 months. I was ordering goat milk formula that was from New Zealand because it was the only one I could find without all the crap in it. Then I found Mt. Capra which is local to me. My daughter loves the formula and I love that I’m confident in what I’m feeding her.

    We were really happy to find Mt Capra’s baby formula,after reading about how bad the store bought formula actually is! We tried Holle brand(mostly cause it’s a just add water formula so it was more handy to make) for awhile but our 9 month old got really fussy and hardly slept much,,apparently tummy distress.We switched back to Mt Capra and the first eve she drank twice as much burped better and fell asleep easier! I was amazed,and praise God for Mt Capra!

    Am loving this product so far! It’s taking a little time to work out some kinks as I’m making the formula in large batches and working with my 7 month old’s unique feeding schedule – but the recipe card is so helpful, as well as the FAQ section on Mt. Capra’s website, and the fact that all of the ingredients were delivered in one box, straight to my front door! Way to go, Mt. Capra! Excited to see how this formula helps my son’s eczema and stuffiness/sinus issues!

    I’m so excited to try this new product! Will this kit/formula provide all the vitamins and nutrients that my 10 mo needs or will I need to supplement further? How quickly can we have the kit delivered?

    • Joe Stout, MS

      Hi Kristine! We can deliver quickly! As fast as overnight shipping if you get in touch with us early in the morning. Overnight rates tend to be pretty expensive.

    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. She was over alert for such a bitty baby and it seemed the only way to get her to sleep in the evening was to let her cry and “burn off” all the extra energy she had. 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! This may be to much information but one thing that really surprised me is her formula poop looked more formed, dark brown/green and smelled like an adult poop. While on goats milk formula it returned to the typical orange/yellow breast fed baby poop without a strong odor. 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!

    This formula kit is great. It comes with everything you need to start out. The formula turns out great and you can make a bigger batch and keep it in the fridge for ~2 days. It mixes well but I would advise to shake the formula each time you use it so that the oils/other additives are distributed evenly. The only reason I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is that the colostrum tends to clog bottle nipples when added in (even stage 2 nipples). the baby gets very frustrated and you end up having to throw out the entire bottle. It is hard to give the colostrum so we decided to wait and give it on food. But if you leave this additive out, it is a wonderful formula and you know exactly what is in it!

    A very satisfied customer. Package arrived damaged and the situation was rectified immediately when I called. A top notch product at a very reasonable price. Baby has had 2 bottles so far, and 48 hours later, I haven’t noticed any signs of allergic reaction in my seven month old. I didn’t feel comfortable with using the Weston A Price formula recipe– too tricky, too much work, and I didn’t want to use raw milk. So, I went with Baby’s Only formula for supplementing which has had good results, but I wanted something less processed. Now I will use Mt. Capra most of the time and Baby’s Only for extra busy days or when traveling. Thankful for both products.

    I forgot to add in the above review that the large batches do not well if kept in a pitcher. It is necessary to pour into separate bottles immediately because the ghee will get semi solid in fridge. Then the bottle will need to be brought to room temp. and then mixed before serving. Or, the ghee could br added later to each bottle. Alternatively, the whole pitcher could be brought to room temperature before pouring but that does not seem practical. Also, the ghee could be given separately to the baby on a spoon or with food. think this should probably be clarified on the website.

    I ordered the Goat Milk Formula Kit for friends with a newborn. They were delighted to receive it. I have every expectation that it will meet their needs better than any other formula on the market. It shipped two days sooner than I expected and that was also a welcome surprise. Thanks so much for all that you have done to produce this superior product.

    We have been slowly switching our seven month old from donor breastmilk to this goats milk formula- I cannot express just how relieved we are to have found such a thorough recipe and such natural, high quality ingredients all in the same place. We have spent months researching the best breastmilk alternative and all the ingredients, and I am happy to say that we are 100% confident in this recipe, the ingredients, and overall- this decision!

    I finally ordered this kit one afternoon: it shipped out that day and it arrived two days later. I was very impressed.

    I emailed asking a question in regards to making large batches of this formula and received an answer within a day or two.

    Overall, this was a lifesaver. We all want what’s best for our children. For us, that was Mt Capra, their goats milk formula recipe, and their ingredients.

    *Comes with a very handy recipe magnet!

    I ordered this kit to give as supplemental feedings for my 7 month old. Wow! He absolutely loves his goat milk formula. It was such a smooth transition and he has had no gas, constipation, spit up.. nothing! I tasted it before giving to my son -it is delicious! The consitency mimics my milk. I am so happy that I found this amazing healthy formula for my boy! Lori Smith has been amazing in answering all of my questions. I love this company and would recommend to anyone looking for a healthy formula for their child. Very easy and fun to make too 🙂 Thank you!

    I LOVE this formula and the easy recipe! My daughter has always has digestive issues even with my breastmilk she would spit most of it up. I had been trying to figure out a good alternative to feed her. The normal shelf formulas would leave her super gassy or super constipated. I figured goat milk formula would be worth a shot since nothing else was working. She rarely spits up now and is never constipated. She is my happy baby! I’m so glad we gave this a try! I definitely recommend this to anyone that is willing to make their babies formula. It gives me a peace of mind knowing what each ingredient is used for and why. The magnet recipe guide makes it so easy to follow and to make larger portions. Thank you Mt Capra this formula is really wonderful!
