How Does The Study Work?

Download the study app

If you are eligible, you will receive an email link to download the study app to install on your phone or tablet. This app will guide you through the study. If you do not receive the link, please make sure to check your spam folder. Contact the study team at if you are still unable to locate the link.

Receive all formula and study tools at home

Based on random selection (like flipping a coin), we’ll provide either our goat milk infant formula or a well-known existing cow milk infant formula at no cost. It will be shipped immediately to your home along with all devices needed to measure your baby’s weight, length, and head circumference.

Guided training

One of our qualified pediatric nurses will train you on how to perform all measurements (weight, length, and head circumference) at home. Training will take place via a video call.

Feeding your baby

During the 16-week study period you will feed your baby only the provided formula. No breastfeeding or other formula is allowed.

Measure growth

The study app will guide you to measure your baby’s weight, length, and head circumference every 2 to 4 weeks. You need to enter the measurements into the app, together with additional information on formula intake amount and tolerance (e.g., gassiness, fussiness, and stool characteristics). In the last week of the study, a stool sample needs to be taken from your baby’s diaper. For this, a stool collection kit will be sent to you.
