I found something that is making me wonder if Mamil is up to some marketing gimic or that is really a purpose nutritionally to it!
Do you know, comparing all Step 2 milk (i.e. milk from 6-12 months), Mamil's number of feeding an total ounces taken is the highest?
Mamil Gold Step 2 recommends 8 oz to be taken 4 times a day, coming up to 32 oz per day.
Nan Step 2 recommends only 7 oz to be taken 3 times a day, coming up to 21 oz per day.
Similac/Bebelac and other brands all recommend a total of 21-24 oz of milk per day.
Enfa doesn't mention the recommend number of feeds per day.
Most other brands of milk only recommend about 6-7 oz of milk per feed, execpt Mamil with 8 oz!
My colleague and I were mainly comparing Nan and Mamil Gold since her kids take Nan and my boy takes Mamil Gold. We looked at the nutritional value and found that both have almost the same amount of fat and protein, with Mamil Gold being a few grams lessor/100g.
And I also realised that the scoop for Mamil is slightly bigger than Nan but 0.xg.
According to my colleague who has decided to let her daughter try Mamil, her babysitter commented that with Mamil, her daughter seems to get hungry faster. With Nan it can last another 1 more on average.
So, what is the catch?
I know this should not be the hard-and-fast rule of how much milk we give to our kids, but what do you think is the reason for this?
On the adult side, we were talking about chocolates the other day and my colleagues and I came to a conclusion that everyone loves Ferrero Rocher.
We may like and dislike other brands of chocolate, but with Ferrero, you never not like it?
Ooohh....the layers are heavenly!
Don't you agree?
