26.1.11

More and more a bottle feeder

While we were in the US it was uninterupted mommy-baby time and milk supply pretty
much ceased to be a problem. In fact, Nava started refusing a bottle for the first time.
Now though, I'm back at work full time (almost 3 months) and formula is king. I used Nature One's Baby's Own Organic dairy formula through the end of 2010 (I brought 12 cans home in my suitcase!) and was dreading having to switch to local Thai stuff because I can't even read the ingredient list. So in the end I sprung for the organic version of the HiPP German brand that the hi-so minimart imports. At 175000 kip (22$) for 800 gram box, lets just say I look forward to cow's milk. And I don't fully trust the brand cause they also make non-organic, and even the scary Nightime formula stuff too. So I trudged off to buy it and found all that was available was the Birth-6month version. I bought it anyways-no one tell Nava ;)

So now I have 2 months to figure out which cow's milk to give her. And there's no organic Thai milk. I just found a French brand of UHT milk at the other minimart this morning. Made in France but not organic. Surely they restrict use of growth hormone et al? For now it's only available in "semi-skim" so here's hoping they'll get in the full fat version soon.
