The daunting thought of going back to work and having to wean my exclusively breastfed 12 month old was definitely taking its toll.

At 12 months old I started the journey of weaning Hugo off the breast onto formula trying multiple different brands which either gave him tummy pains, reflux or made him constipated. I was reluctant to switch straight to cows milk from breast knowing that he may be missing out on some of those essential vitamins and minerals he needed to support healthy growth.

I went from brand to brand, all of which were unsuccessful, until one friend suggested I try Blackmores Toddler Milk Drink. Hugo instantly loved the taste wanting more when he had finished his first bottle.

Over the week trial, I noticed that Hugo was easily digesting the drink with no constipation, reflux or tummy pains and was much happier after each milk feed. Thank god! What a relief! I’ve finally found a suitable toddler milk drink that didn’t upset his sensitive tummy.

I found this trial experience of the Blackmores Toddler Milk drink to be an easy transition from breastfeeding. Compared to other toddler milk drinks which left Hugo constipated and upset, I would recommend Blackmores to my friends and family and anyone who is struggling to find a formula brand right for their toddler. It’s definitely taken a weight off my shoulders as I head back to work knowing that my little man will be fed, comfortable and completely satisfied.
