Who is Baby Booster for?
Baby Booster was designed for new and expectant mommies to provide them with essential nutrients before and after their little one arrives.
Why should I use Baby Booster?
When you're pregnant, eating healthy foods is more important than ever. You need more protein, iron, calcium, and folic acid than you did before pregnancy. Baby Booster is loaded with nutrients that new and expectant mommas need like:
Protein - The American Pregnancy Association recommends two or more protein servings per day, combining to a total of 75 to 100 grams during pregnancy. Baby Booster comes jam packed with 20 grams of protein per serving!
DHA - American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends pregnant and lactating women should aim for an average daily intake of at least 200 mg docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) a day in addition to your prenatal vitamins. Most sources of DHA are fish derived which come with concerns over unwanted elements like mercury which may cause brain damage and developmental delays in babies. Baby Booster's DHA is vegetarian and comes without the concerns associated with fish sources. Each serving provides 75 mg of non-fishy tasting DHA!
Folic Acid (or Folate) - Folic acid reduces the risk of birth defects that affect the spinal cord. American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the March of Dimes recommend 400 micrograms (mcg) per day for pregnant women. The March of Dimes suggests that 70% of all neural tube defects can be avoided with appropriate folic acid intake. Baby Booster comes with 250 mcg per serving!
B6 - Research studies have suggest that taking extra B6 (also known as pyridoxine) may help relieve morning sickness for some pregnant women.
Iron - Iron is an important part of red blood cells, which carry oxygen through the body to vital organs. Pregnant women need extra iron to help your body make more blood to supply oxygen to your fetus. American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends 27 total mg of iron a day. Baby Booster comes with 10 mg of iron per serving!
Calcium - Calcium is used to build your baby's bones and teeth. All women, including pregnant women, aged 19 years and older should get 1,000 mg of calcium daily. Each serving of Baby Booster comes with 250 mg of calcium.
Vitamin D - Vitamin D works with calcium to help the fetus’s bones and teeth develop. It also is essential for healthy skin and eyesight. According to American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists...all women, including those who are pregnant, need 600 IUs of vitamin D a day. Each delicious shake of Baby Booster comes with 100 IUs per serving.
What does Baby Booster taste like?
Baby Booster comes in two AMAZING flavors: Kona Mocha and Tahitian Vanilla.

Can I mix Baby Booster with milk?
Yes! Baby Booster can be mixed with both water and a milk (dairy and non dairy) of your choosing.
We personally recommend that you mix Baby Booster with your favorite milk for some added nutrition and an ideal taste!
Baby Booster has 20grams of protein. How much protein do I need while pregnant?
The American Pregnancy Association suggests pregnant women need 75g-100g of protein every day. Baby Booster recommends drinking 2-3 shakes a day, which would give you 60% of your daily value. We've come across many women who are unable to achieve their protein goals during pregnancy and breastfeeding because of aversions sometimes due to morning sickness. That is exactly why we developed Baby Booster. Baby Booster will help provide your daily protein and nutrition requirements.
Can I use Baby Booster while nursing? How much protein do I need while breastfeeding?
Absolutely! Baby Booster was designed for pregnant and nursing moms. Breastfeeding moms need an additional 50% more protein which makes Baby Booster a great, convenient option (especially in getting some extra protein, DHA, calcium, iron and folic acid...all of which are really important while nursing). We designed Baby Booster keeping in mind that a lot of women would need the nutritional support during that "fourth trimester" (the nursing period).
Can I use Baby Booster if I take a prenatal vitamin?
Yes! Baby Booster was formulated keeping in mind that a majority of its users would be taking a prenatal vitamin of some sort. We were very careful in making sure that nothing in Baby Booster would negatively interfere with a prenatal vitamin, so taking Baby Booster is a great complement to a prenatal. A lot of women DO choose to use only Baby Booster with a healthy diet instead of a "prenatal vitamin," but we'd recommend speaking with your doctor before taking that route in case he or she thinks there are specific nutrients you may need that aren't included in Baby Booster.
Is Baby Booster non-GMO?
Yes! Baby Booster went the extra mile when selecting ingredients. We opted for high end, high quality and sometimes more costly ingredients to ensure that Baby Booster Moms are getting premium quality nutrition. This is one of many things that sets us apart from our competitors. Baby Booster found a source of protein that is non-GMO and is actively working on the next step to become officially licensed with the Non-GMO Project.
Is Baby Booster made with natural ingredients?
Yes! Baby Booster took the guesswork out and developed a holistic alternative to traditional beverages consumed during pregnancy, breastfeeding and beyond. We took the initiative to source only quality and REAL ingredients and never include any artifical flavors or colors!
Can I use Baby Booster if I’m not pregnant?
Yes! Baby Booster was made with the goal of creating a convenient, healthy option for pregnant women that doesn’t include the questionable ingredients often found in protein supplements (artificial ingredients, soy, low quality protein, etc) but many of our mommas continue drinking Baby Booster while nursing (and longer) to for a great, healthy shake! In fact, we even have plenty of dads that tried Baby Booster and found that they liked it so much that they ordered some for themselves!
Is Baby Booster Lactose free?
The Kona Mocha and Tahitian Vanilla flavors have whey protein which CONTAINS lactose.
Is Baby Booster safe for children?
Baby Booster was designed for women to take before, during and after pregnancy. We are NOT a children's supplement and DO NOT recommend giving Baby Booster to your child.
