Every parent’s feeding experience is as unique as their baby. While the journey may be easy for some, others may struggle. Real Parent Story is a series on our blog where we ask real parents to share their feeding stories. Whether you’re expecting or already have little one, we hope these stories can offer you insight into what worked (or didn’t work) for parents just like you.
I researched formula that didn’t contain cow’s milk due to my son’s sensitivities.
The snack puffs and the formula.
Yes, America allows a lot of harmful additives to our food and baby food is not exempt. I was shocked and terrified to find certain ingredients in formulas I’d researched, before finding Kabrita.
I was interested in the puffs because of the nutritional contents. Most importantly, I wanted the calcium it contained but not the cow’s milk. The only puffs I’d given him before were sweetened with fruit but didn’t have much nutritional value.
After one puff, he was hooked. He put it in his mouth and his eyes widened and he went grabbing for the bag. He covered himself in crumbs finishing the whole bag!
He loved it! I had to sneak one to see if it was really that good and they are! I could have a whole bag to myself if he’d let me.
He didn’t have any reactions to it, his eczema didn’t flare, he didn’t have gas or bloat, and most importantly he didn’t have blood in his stool like cow’s milk has subjected him to.
I love the values this company stands on. From supporting communities of color and being inclusive, to prioritizing the nutrition and care of the babies the products support. I love it.
