The week before my daughter decided to wean off milk, she was asking for it more than usual, and then suddenly one day she just decided she didn't want it anymore. Her grandmother (my mother) was very worried and was sure her granddaughter wasn't getting sufficient nutrients but I also knew there was no way I could have forced my two year old to drink something she had clearly rejected countless times. So what did I do?
I turned to CATALO Children's Milk Calcium Formula. 2 chewable tablets are nearly equivalent to 1 cup of milk, contains Zinc to support immune system as well as other minerals that work with calcium to build strong bones. The most important fact is that it comes from a natural dairy source, and I have to add that the cute bear-shape makes it very appealing to my little one, who now knows how to twist the cap open and help herself to it! Needless to say it's now on the top cabinet, beyond her reach!
I have my share of calcium to replenish too with all the breastfeeding. And because my baby gets his source of calcium from me, I am very careful with what I consume.
Some people do experience some side effects when taking calcium pills, but I've been told that that is due to the synthetic ingredients present in those calcium supplements. The ingredients in CATALO's Vegetarian Calcium Formula are from natural sources (even the Vit C in it comes from Acerola Cherry), so it doesn't cause constipation or the bloated sensation, which is great for me because the last thing I want is a baby who suffers from that as well!
There's a Chinese saying "病从口入, that's why I have now learnt to examine the source of ingredients in supplements I give to my family!
