Baby Skyler first formula milk - bellamy's organic

For the past 27 months and still going, I've been breastfeeding baby Skyler non stop 24/7 round the clock... and a total of 4 years being a breastfeeding momma to my 2 kids!!! 4 years of being a HAPPY milking "cow".

This lovely parcel couldn't come at a more perfect timing as we were in the midst of transitioning baby Skyler to stop night breastfeeding...yes, he still wakes up 3-5 times every night!
***This momma has been zombified with grossly looking eyebags***

Previously, with our first born, baby Sienna, it was a smooth transition for her. When I was a few months pregnant with baby no2, we introduced all sorts of formula milk to Sienna but she just didn't take any!!! She would run a mile away after smelling n tasting all the formula out there, even up to today. She miraculously stopped latching on once we started her on fresh milk n amazingly, slept through the night!

Unfortunately, that wasn't the case for baby Skyler ... we introduce fresh milk to him during the day but still wants to latch on round the clock!!!

First on our taste test list:
Bellamy's Organic Toddler Milk drink (stage 3) from 12 months onwards.
Perfect for BOTH my kids.

I was skeptical at first when I was making the formula milk as it brought back memories of making all the different samples of other brand's formula milk. The smell n taste scares me. It's no wonder Sienna didn't take any. I have this thing whereby if the adults can't accept the taste of it, why feed it to your kids?

Surprisingly Bellamy's Organic Toddler Milk drink (stage 3) proved me wrong!!! The taste n smell resembles fresh cow's milk!!! YES of course it does... *duh* just take a look at the ingredients list ...

"Ingredients: Organic full cream milk powder, organic skim milk powder, organic maltodextrin, organic soybean oil, inulin, organic lactose, organic demineralised whey solids, lecithin (soy)."

"Our products use only the finest ingredients and NASAA, the nation’s leading organic body, certifies all our products."

"Organic baby products, just like organic food in general, are a good choice when you want a natural product that hasn’t been produced with harmful chemicals, but it’s even more important that babies get an organic, pure start to life, without harmful toxins in their diets."

I did not tell either of the kiddos that I'm feeding them a new brand of milk. I hid the tin away and secretly made it in hiding. Sienna knows all too well how the appearance of a formula milk. The other day, she quickly questioned me as soon as she saw the tin when the parcel arrived.
And bingo!!! BOTH kids drank their milk as if they were drinking their normal fresh milk. Even mixed it into their favourite Milo drink.

Talking about tins, did you know that Bellamy's tins are fully recyclable and BPA free? The plastic lids are also recyclable! <-- this momma learnt something new everyday! *Yayyy* and *Double Yayyy* to saving mother earth!!!

If you know me (or have been following me), this momma is all about the 3Rs!!!! Nothing goes to waste in the "Chaw-Naga" residence. Not only that, Mr. Hubby/me will do the walk of fame to drop off our recyclables every once/twice a week! And we do it proudly. I'm so happy to know that:

"Bellamy’s uses producers who have a culture of reduce, re-use, recycle"

2nd on our taste test list:
Bellamy's Organic Vegie Pasta Alphabets.
(All ages - from 8 months)

A brief background. Let me first tell you that ALL babies will happily eat all kinds of vegetables until they reach a certain age, about 2 years old when they learn to talk and their taste bud fully developed. Sienna will pick out all greens, carrots, etc... I will have to hide it or feed her with distractions (playground, TV, iPad). I know, don't judge! ***rolls eyes*** A mum gotta do what a mum's gotta do.
She's slowly getting better at eating her veggies since this mommy told a white lie saying she will grow taller n more beautiful like a princess if she eats her veggies.

So back to the taste test. I made pumpkin+eggplant+cilantro+coconut milk green curry chicken to go with Bellamy's Organic Vegie Pasta Alphabets. 

My little helper who wasn't feeling well that day but yet was eager and volunteered to help!

The pasta was a hit!!! Not so the curry sauce (on a side note: Mr. Hubby thought it was the best curry he ever tasted... ***really, am not lying***)

Sienna n Skyler finished all the pasta n even requested for more!!! They finished their dinner in minutes and even fed themselves till the end. The colorful pasta and the cute alphabets kept Sienna entertained all throughout her meal.

3rd on our taste test list:
Bellamy's Organic Vegie Macaroni
(All ages - from 12 months)

This time this momma went Asian fusion!!! 
Stir fried minced beef with garlic+onion+tomato+cilantro+mixed verbs to go with Bellamy's Organic Vegie Macaroni. 100% success!!! 

It took longer to finished their dinner cause they were playing and having too much fun with the macaroni shaped into "O"s. Their plates were wiped out together with the sauce. They asked for second, third helpings till there was no more. Mr. Hubby and I didn't even get to eat any macaroni. Same case as the alphabet pasta!

Things to note: for both taste test 2 and 3, the pasta/macaroni can be eaten just by itself without the need to make any sauce! This momma obviously didn't read the instructions. But since my kids are older (no longer babies), meat ought to be present and added into their diet.

Last on our taste test list:
Bellamy's Organic Pear and Apple snacks
(All ages - from 12 months)

This momma saved the best for last and kept this snack hidden for days as I knew that my kids are fruit lovers, what more in a snack form!!! And this momma was right... there was none left!!! It was devoured and none was spared "alive". I had to plead with them for a piece for this momma to do a taste test as well. 

Verdict: intense flavor and yummy!!!

Overall verdict: This momma is very happy with the taste but even more HAPPY to know that I'm feeding my kids with the best ingredients.
