Why did Annika give her baby Raw Goat Milk Formula?

Kira was allergic/sensitive to cow milk based products since birth. While breastfeeding, I could not even consume any cow dairy myself or my breast milk would make her very sick resulting in her screaming with pain for hours, vomiting, and skin rashes on her face. All infant formulas are cow dairy based, and soy formula is poison to babies (read more about dangers of soy formula here), so soy was not an option.
My baby drank raw goat milk since age 8 months, and continues to drink it years later. RAW milk was the ONLY milk she could tolerate aside from breastmilk. I used the goat milk formula with great success, and appreciated the guidance of other knowledgeable moms who who raised their children on homemade formula. (Yahoo health group “newWAPHB“)
