I started my son Justin on a new milk formula (Milk #1) yesterday not because I wanted to, but because I needed to. His current formula has been out of stock for several weeks now. Good thing, I managed to buy several cartons before this “sudden disappearance” happened. I suspect a new packaging is in the offing for his milk brand, which is fine with me. The thing is they (the manufacturer) could have notified the buying public ahead of time so that mothers, like me, would have ample time to prepare for such a scenario.
It turned out the new milk (Milk #1) was not to my son’s liking, and he ended up not having bottle feedings last night and this morning, which worried me. So I asked his pedia if we could just buy his old milk brand but the one catering to three years old and above because that’s the one available in the market — my son is only 2 years and 2 months old– and his pedia said yes. Luckily, Tatay paid us a visit today, and he brought with him Justin’s “new” milk (Milk #2), which my son seemed to like. So, all’s well that ends well. But not after I spent more than Php600.00 for the new milk (Milk #1) and have slept little last night worrying that my son went to bed hungry.
