My son had a very rough time during his infancy. He suffered from colic and severe GERD. Motherhood certainly wasn’t all roses and sunshine when he was a newborn. There were many bumps in the road. Bumps we eventually overcame. It just took time and the right approach.

My son was breastfed. He was a little man who wouldn’t have it any other way. He lived for the boob. He may have had a hard time keeping breast milk down, but it’s what he thrived off of.

During the first 10 months of my son’s life, I noticed my supply was starting to dwindle. I tried to do everything to increase it. Pumping. Fennel tea. Increased water consumption. Rest. I tried just about every trick in the book. Sadly… nothing worked. It was the beginning of the end of my breastfeeding relationship with my son. It was bittersweet.

Weaning my son off the boob and transitioning him on to formula and/or homo milk was a nightmare. He didn’t like the taste of either. He went through what felt like a long stage of refusal. He would only intake juice, water and his solid foods. Milk was something he just did not care for. To this day he still isn’t a huge fan of it.

I came across Natrel Baboo at my local Wal-Mart not long after we started transitioning. I decided to pick some up. Not for my son to try right away, but to try while we were away in Mexico. We were heading on a family vacation in a few weeks and I knew if he didn’t like milk in Canada, there was no way that he would like the milk in Mexico. We needed to have something on hand that would keep him hydrated. Giving Natrel Baboo a try certainly was worth the whirl.

What I loved about Natrel Baboo is that it doesn’t have to be stored in the fridge, although it is made using fresh milk. Perfect for parents on the go and/or travelling. It’s been specially formulated to help transition toddlers from breast milk or formula to regular milk. It reaps many health benefits too!

Natrel Baboo is the one dairy product that my son will drink. Not only will he drink it, but he enjoys it. That’s what is important to me. Baboo has pulled us out of some tough and stressful times. It has gotten my son back on track and consuming the nutrition he need to grow and thrive.

Natrel Baboo is giving away 50,000 coupons to try a free carton of Baboo. To claim you free carton, visit the Natrel Baboo Facebook Page.

    This would have been great for my little man, now he loves milk, but when we started in the beginning of changing to whole milk it was tough. I’m glad this is working for your little guy!

    My son loves his boob too LOL. He even calls it that. “Want some boobie” We are weaning him (he’s 19 months) and tried out Baboo too, love that it doesn’t have to be refrigerated.
