Anecdotal reports have described a host of morbidities associated with that practice, including severe electrolyte abnormalities, metabolic acidosis, megaloblastic anemia, allergic reactions including life-threatening anaphylactic shock, hemolytic uremic syndrome, and infections. We describe here an infant who was fed raw goat's milk and sustained intracranial… Expand
High-protein goat’s milk diet identified through newborn screening: clinical warning of a potentially dangerous dietetic practice
TLDR
The case of a newborn who was fed with undiluted goat’s milk because her mother could not breast-feed and was not aware of infant formulas demonstrates that, when breast-feeding is not possible or is not exclusive, infants may be at risk of dangerous nutritional practices, including diets with very high protein content, such as a goat's milk diet.
