Toddler Formula?

In the beginning of our wait, we made quite a few baby purchases. We even registered our car seat in case of any recalls. We also got a subscription to a baby magazine. Because of those things, we were put on baby mailing lists.

It started with getting things in the mail about pregnancy. Then we got some samples of newborn diapers and formula. A few months later we got some coupons for older baby things like "cruiser" diapers for when they start crawling. We also got baby food coupons and flyers about introducing your baby to solid foods.

It has kind of been a painful reminder of how much time has gone by and how old our baby would be if we adopted right away. Or if I had actually been pregnant like they assumed I was.

I opened the mailbox yesterday and saw a sample of toddler formula.

Toddler formula?

I guess my wait is now a toddler. They grow up so fast.


  1. Wow. That really sucks. I try to remember that in 10 years from now when we are going to soccer games and PTA meetings that this terrible waiting won't mean much. Emphasis on the try.
    BTW- what the freak is toddler formula?

  2. My guess is that toddler formula is what the formula industry came up with so they could keep getting your money past your baby's first year. And they scare you into buying it with phrases like: Your toddler will complete 85% of his brain growth by age 3. Give him the nutritional building blocks he needs now.
