 New Milk Product for 12-24 Months - Baboo?

I just started seeing commercials for a new product designed for kids 12 to 24 months. Apparently it's meant to be an nutrient rich transition from breastmilk or formula to adult cow's milk. It's called Baboo by Natrel.

Has anyone tried it yet? The reviews on it seem to be great!

Oh and if you Like the page on Facebook, they'll mail you a free coupon for a tetra pack.

ETA: I have a feeling it's going to be pretty expensive though smile

It's probaby cheaper than toddler formula though (we have an addict here)! I'd be interested in the reviews too.

I found this with what is in it. Elsewhere on the natrel site they were saying $3.20 for a 1L and 6.99 for 6 x 250ml

I just heard about this on Facebook, and I am SOOOOO wanting to get my hands on some to see if J will like it! I have a feeling that our transition off of formula at the end of this month won't go so well.

I was part of a test group for Natrel, and DD did drink the product because it was sweeter. I tasted it and it was sweet, sweeter than vanilla rice milk. DD only drank the test group sample, and never asked for more.

In general I find Natrel products way sweeter, they use aspertame (Sp?) and other sweetners. Personally, I wasn't impressed with it, we went to homo milk and we switch her from Homo, Rice, and soy milk, so she doesn't get bored. And she tells us which one she wants. She is not a big sweets fan, so I don't think at 20 months she would actually drink the Baboo again?

I just spoke to the company because the thought of them adding aspartame is quite unnerving. They confirmed that they don't add it or any other sugar substitute. The sugars in it are all naturally occurring sugars. They are also not in any of their other products as if they were adding it they would have to list it in the ingredients.

Map - Yes according to the website it does need to be refrigerated after opening it.

Although I don't think the product is required for all toddlers much like toddler formula, I am sure there are LOs that can benefit from it. We have all heard of some kids not transitioning to milk well so perhaps this can help them. I will admit, I like the portability of it.
