baby ziyi weaned off mommy's boops

i started supplementing baby ziyi with formula milk after breastfeeding her exclusively until she was 8.5 months. she refused drinking her formula using Avent bottles and so i gave Dr. Brown's bottle a try after a friend told me about it. i find Dr. Brown's teats are softer compared to Avent's. finally, after trying for 2 days, baby ziyi was sucking the teats and drinking her formula from Dr. Brown's bottles! 

when she was about 9 months, i managed to reduce my breastmilk supply (by not expressing my breastmilk so often) and nursed her only twice a day (before and after work). by now (she's almost 10 months), i've stopped nursing her completely. she was ready to wean off my boops and so was i. 

there was no struggle, no unhappy moments in the process of weaning off..both mommy and baby are happy about it.

but mommy is sad about 1 thing... my boops seems to have shrunk!! :(

new toys for baby ziyi

i bought few new toys for baby ziyi at mattel warehouse sales last month. the warehouse sales was at Wisma Atria, Damansara Jaya. i reached there at 10.10am on the first day of the sales and oh boy, the place was so crowded that i had to squeeze my way through. 

with the help of my friends, we managed to grab a few nice toys and they are mostly fisher-price's toys. 

i bought a total of 9 items and they cost me less than rm400, which i think is really cheap for toys of this brand. otherwise it'd have cost me almost double if purchased without any discounts/sales period. 

babies get bored with their toys real fast, so i'm not going to give her all the toys at one go. maybe 1 toy each month, and this will save me from buying her toys for the next 9 months..lol

so angry with my mil

i came home early from work today and saw my mil scooping baby ziyi's porridge from the slow cooker. and i saw her rinsing her bowl with tap water ONLY. i was so mad and asked why didn't she rinse it with hot water?? and u know what her reply was? 

"aiya, sometimes i'll forget wan. she's been doing okay what...so nothing la"

i was FUMING MAD! then i started my lecture... "u know ar.. tap water is contaminated with dunno-what bacteria, germs..blah..blah..blah..".....which lasted for about few minutes.

of course, her face turned black immediately but i didn't give a damn coz this concern my daughter! that surely affected my mood. i didn't even smile to my cutie-pie while feeding her her porridge. yes, i took over the spoon from my mil. aaargghhh!!!

is it really okay to NOT sterilise or at least rinse baby utensils with hot water??

meal time = battle time

baby ziyi has been refusing to eat her normal food for the past few days. it was so stressful. i had to try many many ways to coax her into eating her food. she'd shake her head and fuss everytime the spoon touches her lips. she'll end up drinking her formula as her meal replacement, lucky she still willing to drink her formula. i did not bring her to her paedic yet, my instinct told me that this might just be due to her teething discomfort. mother's instinct is usually right, hor??

so far i've been able to feed her tiny amount of bread with cheese/unsalted butter and her biscuits which she loves so much. today, i've decided to make her scrambled egg yolk and she loves it. it's super easy to cook and i will do it again for her.

scrambled egg for baby/toddler

1 egg (use only yolk for infants below 12months old)
finely chop onions
finely chop veggies (any veggies that your baby likes)
shredded cheese (i used cheddar)
unsalted butter
full cream milk

mix egg yolk and a little milk in a bowl.
heat the wok and put in a dollop of unsalted butter
saute onions and veggies till fragrant
pour the egg mixture and stir fry gently till it's fully cooked

p/s: sorry, there's no photos to show here coz i've again forgotten to recharge my camera's battery.
