Every parent’s feeding experience is as unique as their baby. While the journey may be easy for some, others may struggle with many issues. Real Dad Story is a series of blog posts where we ask real dads to share their side of the story. Being a parent can be difficult at times for anyone. Whether you’re expecting or already have little one, we hope these stories can offer you insight on what worked (or didn’t work) for parents just like you. Today, we will be sharing Eric and Chase’s story!
Tell us a little bit about Chase!
Chase is 16 months old and has become a little adventurer. He climbs up and down the stairs, plays on the playground in the park, and runs, and runs, and runs everywhere. He has a big appetite most days after all his physical exercise.
How did you first hear about Kabrita? Why did your family need a goat milk formula?
Chase was born in the 90th percentile for height and weight. Although he was already a “big boy,” he had a tongue tie, which made breastfeeding nearly impossible. My wife valiantly tried to continue breastfeeding, and at six weeks he finally got it! Later on, we heard about Kabrita from friends who use the formula with their little ones. We combo fed him until he was eight months and decided that he was over breastfeeding. This was when we switched exclusively to Kabrita.
What do you think of Kabrita’s taste and smell? How did Chase transition to Kabrita?
Chase enjoys the taste. The transition was seamless. He liked Kabrita right away and switched over to it 100% within a few days. To me, there is no smell – which is a good thing, especially when washing bottles.
What is your favorite thing about Kabrita and the time you spend with Chase during feeding?
We want to give Chase the healthiest food possible. We feel that goat milk is the best choice when it comes to baby formula. When he’s ready for his bottle, he takes his pacifier out of his mouth, hands it to me, and then grabs the bottle with both hands. It’s adorable.
Anything else you would like to add?
It would be great if you created goat milk snacks that parents could put together with lunches. Chase says thanks.
