Mommy Moments – Feeding Time

mommy moments

Hi mommies! Another week is here. Its time for Mommy Moments again. This week’s theme is FEEDING TIME. You can post your kid’s baby pictures when they were nursing, bottle feeding or recent pictures feeding themselves. You can also share some stories ( tips for picky eaters or weaning tips…)

Here is my entry!

This is Kyla when she was 1 year old. I breastfed her until 11 months and stopped because I had to take some medications for my skin asthma. I shifted to bottle feeding and was only able to wean her when she reached 4. I stopped cold turkey. I already discussed with Kyla that she would stop using the bottle at 4. She cried for one night but she accepted it the next morning.

She can be a picky eater. But I am glad that she is more agreeable to try new food recently. I reward her with stickers or juice whenever she would try something new.

This picture above was taken last year. She was in a curious mood while we were in a restaurant. She wanted to taste her catsup with water! And she liked it! I know, its gross! But she was having fun… we couldn’t seem to stop her.

Unfortunately, I don’t have any nursing pictures with Toby. I breastfed Toby until 22 months. I let him use sippy cup, skipping the bottle altogether. I weaned him gradually but when the time came, I just decided to stop letting him nurse. It took 2 or 3 nights of crying but it was worth it. He was able to sleep through the night once he was weaned.

This picture was taken last year. Toby likes to try new food. Everything he sees at the table, he likes to try. Sometimes, he stuffs too much into his mouth and this is what happens!

Well, I would like to see your pictures and hear your stories!

  19. Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) says:

    Awwww, cute pictures! I breastfed the Princess Nagger until about 2 weeks shy of 12 months – she decided she wanted to eat ‘regular’ food, so I switched her to baby food and gave her formula in a bottle. She tends to be a picky eater – it’s a challenge especially to get her to eat veggies! 🙂

  20. oops, mommy Chris, I wrote the wrong blog URL. sorry :o( Is there anyway to delete the first entry?

  21. Life's Journey says:

    mice pictures mommy!

  23. Hi, Mommy Cris?

    Naku, ako nga rin iniisip ko kelan kaya ko ma-wean ang baby ko. Gusto ko pag 2 years na sya, fully bottle-feed na lang. Ngayon, pumapayag na sya na minsan na lang breastfeed.

    Iba-iba naman ang babies, diba?

  24. salamat sa dalw…opo mahilig akong magpa pic habng nagpapadede aahahahha!!! kaso ung iba kong mga shots halos labas tlga lahat kaya i cn post them ehheheh =)

  25. you are so lucy in terms of weaning.. my first born is now 5 and he still feeds on bottle from time to time.. I breastfeed him for a year and when I told him he needs to stop breastfeeding for the baby (I was pregnant then with our second baby) when he turns one, he just agreed, no fussing and crying. Mico’s case is different. I nursed him so long and weaning part is nightmare! LOl.. and now for Chico, well he seems to be as persistent as his Dico (MIco) so I am sure weaning him will be a nightmare again.. hehe

    as for the eating part, well they are not picky eaters, they can even eat veggies that I can’t eat hehe..

    Make or Break

  26. wala pa ko entry for mommy moments….waaahhhh!
    just dropped by today to say hi! just came home from a party in Makati….
