It is no secret that I am a huge, long term fan of Bubs Toddler Goat Milk. I weaned Ari onto it when he was 12 months old, and Chloe also started to drink it from the same age. I took a very gentle weaning approach for both of my little loves, having mix fed Ari with breastmilk from 12 to 15 months, then exclusively onto Bubs Australia. For Chloe I mix fed from 12 months to two years old. Each child is different but for us I found it to be the perfect way. A journey that created a balance between not pushing them to wean and giving me the flexibility of not solely relying on my breastmilk. (Bubs Toddler Goat Milk is suitable from 12 moths plus.)
With the decision to wean, came the decision of what to wean them onto. This is not something that I considered lightly. With so many options of products available it didn’t take long for me to feel completely overwhelmed. To honest there was so much out there that I would never put through their precious digestive systems.
Bubs Toddler Goat Milk was and still is the clear winner for us. It was founded in Australia by a Mother of three who wanted exactly what I want for my children… what is best for her bubs. What Mum doesn’t want the very best for her child? Made from whole goat milk and goat whey protein, within Bubs Toddler Goat Milk you can find a balanced daily intake of essential fatty acids, vitamins, prebiotics and other beneficial nutrients needed to support a healthy growing body. Bubs Toddler Goat Milk is produced in the beautiful Victorian countryside, and is the only Australian made Toddler Goat Milk sold in Australian Supermarkets. Perfectly made for growing children to help to support their immune system, growth and development.
I have been blessed by the fact the neither Ari nor Chloe have any dietary intolerances, however Bubs can be the perfect solution to issues related to digestion. Some of the symptoms of digestive issues that can be repaired by simple switching to goat’s milk include, cow milk protein intolerances/sensitivity, wind, bloating, constipation, colic, diarrhoea and regurgitation. In fact, because it is so gentle and nourishing, Bubs can even help even help with mucus congestion and skin conditions like inflammation, rashes and eczema.
I have recommended Bubs to countless people who has subsequently asked me, “What is the difference between cow’s milk and goats’ milk.” To put it short, goats’ milk is just easier for the body to digest. The harder a child’s body must work to breakdown milk sources and food the more stress is put on bodily systems, and nutrients are absorbed much slower. The Bubs Australia website is full of information on why goats milk is such a great choice, so I highly recommend having a look here.
I have previously written two blog posts about the Bubs Australia products, The Final Feed which talks about our weaning journey, and Traveling with Kids featuring Bubs Australia, which gives a really great run through of all the benefits to travelling with Bubs Australia products.
As always please remember that I am not a midwife, lactation consult, nutritionist, doctor or any other medical expert. I am just a Mother expressing her journey and opinions. Thank you to Bubs Australia for sponsoring this blog post so that I can share one of my very favourite products with you. My opinion is of course and always is my own. #BUBSPARTNER
