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!
