“It’s just a stage.”
How many times do new parents hear that phrase during their children’s early years? But it’s true: especially during their first two years, children go through a remarkable range of stages and transitions. One of the most important transitions children make is the one from breast milk or formula to regular milk.
Up until now, there was no way for parents to help ease their children’s transition over to regular milk, and many children and families struggled to make the switch. Thankfully, this important change can now be handled with ease.
Introducing Baboo, a new category of dairy product in Canada. Baboo is the first Canadian dairy product specially designed by the Natrel dairy experts for toddlers aged 12 to 24 months. It’s the right dairy product to ensure a smooth transition from breast milk or infant formula to regular milk. Baboo is rich in nutrients, contains fresh milk and as a complement to a balanced diet, it contributes to the development of toddlers 12-24 months.
Thirty members of our Go2Girlz product testing panel recently had the opportunity to test Baboo with their own toddlers. Eager to see if this innovative new product would live up to its claims, they offered it to their little ones making the transition from formula or breast milk. Overall, nearly all the children liked Baboo, and most seemed to love it – gulping it down quickly and asking for more. The moms were happy with this new dairy product as well, particularly the fact that it is freshly packaged in shelf-safe Tetra Pak cartons that protect nutrients without preservatives and don’t require refrigeration before opening.
After sampling Natrel Baboo with their toddlers, we asked our Go2Girlz testers if they would recommend the product to another mom, and if they would buy it again themselves. The overwhelming majority said they would. But why not hear what they had to say about Baboo in their own words?
Love it! She drank it faster than her usual sippy cup of milk! – Marnie, mom of 1
He seemed to enjoy it very much. Didn’t upset his stomach and he
didn’t object to drinking it, which he sometimes did with cow’s milk. –
Yuen, mom of 2
My little girl (1) loved it. She didn’t even let on that she noticed it wasn’t breastmillk or formula – Katie, mom of 2
My daughter gulped it down. Any chance this will be sold by the barrel? 😉 – Rachelle, mom of 1
My 17 month old said ‘Mo? Mo?’ (translation: More) – Heather, mom of 2
I love that it’s shelf-stable, and doesn’t require refrigeration until it’s been opened. Very convenient for long trips away from home. – Andrea, mom of 1
I love how the product is enriched with Omega-DHA! – Melissa, mom of 2
My 15 month old hadn’t tried much cow’s milk, but had no problem drinking a glass of this milk at a time. – Jessica, mom of 2
My youngest loves it! Thought it was ‘mmmmm’ – Tasha, mom of 2
Kids care first and foremost about taste, and this was a hit with their picky palates. They thought it was a special treat not a nutritional supplement – Shannon, mom of 4
I liked the size of this product where I can bring it to my in-laws and not have to bring back a big jug of milk. – Jeannie, mom of 2
I think that it’s great that it’s formulated to be gentler on the digestive system of toddlers as they transition to regular milk. I love that it’s in a Tetra Pak carton, so that when you travel, and have any concerns about the milk, this can be brought with you. – Sally, mom of 3
