Yes and the baby is mine. I want to blog about this so that I can show Ashley when she is older just how naughty she is 😀
When she reached 9 months old, she just stopped drinking milk completely. NO amount of coaxing helped. I changed to soy milk, changed the milk bottles and teats, used sippy cup, etc but nothing will make her drink her milk. Finally, we found a way. Spoonfeeding. Oh, it’s not as easy as that. She would only drink when she is watching advertisements. I began to tape all the advertisements for her and play them when it’s time for Ashley to drink her milk. Now, she drinks (spoonfed) 8 oz of milk, 3 times a day! People will think I’m crazy to do this but that’s the only way to get her to drink her milk. I have been doing it for the past 1 year now. On and off, I would give her the sippy cup with milk but she will not take it.
Whenever we go out, Ashley will not be able to drink her milk as No Advertisements = No Milk. As a replacement, I’ll give her cheese and jar food. This is a major problem that we, or rather I am facing because I take care of her full-time It is very stressful indeed! I wonder when all these would stop and she’ll drink milk just like a normal kid. Oh and she doesn’t like to drink water too.
I don’t have a photo of Ashley which is related to drinking milk so l’m posting this very funny picture of Yoda 😀
When we arrived at the clinic, the paed was not in yet and we were number 3 on the list. Hubby took her for a walk around that area so that she didn’t need to stay too long inside the clinic. When it was almost her turn, I asked hubby to bring her in and she was ok for a while when she saw the slides and the toys. As soon as the nurse called her name, she started to run away and cried. Had to grab her and took her inside. While the doctor was checking her, she screamed and kicked It was over in 5 minutes and I had to send her out to hubby who was waiting outside so that I could talk to the paed. Every trip to the clinic is really stressful for all of us.
Getting her to take her medication is very difficult now. Her fever came back around 4am this morning and I had to force feed her the medicine while hubby held her down. Now Ashley’s voice is like an old woman. Luckily she is pretty active eventhough she’s not well. There were so many sick kids at the clinic. It must be the weather. Hope my baby will get well soon.
Ashley uses 5 pieces of diapers everyday. Huggies during the day and Mamypoko when she goes to bed at night. I normally change her diaper every 3 to 3 1/2 hours. However, after she has her dinner and just before she goes to bed, which is about 2 hours apart, I let her use Pampers Comfort as it’s cheaper than the 2 brands mentioned. It cost about RM28 for 72 pieces of Large size. I still have half a bag to go and for sure I’m not going to buy this brand again. Any recommendations on what is good and economical?
