Dutch Mill: Milk Substitute

It's been around six months when we weaned Gabbie from formula (and bottles). Thought I could get her to drink Enfagrow from a glass when she turned three, but I wasn't successful. I'm not giving her back the bottle of course. So while thinking of other ways to get her to drink milk again, we give her Chocolait, Milo or Hersheys choco milk drink and Yakult as source of Calcium, aside from the natural food sources.

But today we had her try Dutch Mill yogurt milk drink and it was a success! Gabbie even asked me where I bought that milk because she said she liked it.

So I guess from now on we will include this in our grocery list. Im not sure though if this is cheaper or pricier than other powdered milk but as long as Gabbie likes it, it should be OK :)

ivy, andre is also into yakult since november last yr. however, since di na sya masyadong malakas sa solids except for some kinds of food, he is still very much into nido3+ but still in bottles (sigh). ayaw sa glass. but when we ran out of milk, say namamasyal kami sa mall, we buy him those magnolia fresh milk in small cartons like the size of nestle cream. he sips it with a straw. pero di lang nga nya nauubos.--irene franco

irene: problema kay gabbie pag alam nyang milk eh aayaw na. buti yung Dutch Mill medyo lasang Yakult. Hehe. Malakas din naman ito sa solids lalo na pag may sabaw.

Is it really okay for a 1 year old baby to drink DutchMill po?Ung baby ko po nainom nyan and yes he loved it.Medyo mahina na kase ung milk ko and kahit ano gawin namin para uminum sya sa ibang milk,ayaw nya tlga.Almost lahat na ata ng brand ng formula milk nbili ko na just to try and try na may magustuhan sya.Pero wala talga,he really needs more calcium.
