How to wean a toddler from bottle feeding

Bottle feeding a baby is a time-consuming and stressful task. You must monitor your milk production, your baby's feeding schedule, and other factors. Once you start weaning your toddler from the bottle, it can be equally as stressful—but for very different reasons! Some mothers feel bad about denying their toddlers something they adore so much, while others worry that if a bottle isn't around at all times, their children won't get enough food or liquids. What if, then, I could prove to you that things don't have to be this way? That there are actually ways to help you through the process? Be consistent While consistency is important for all aspects of parenting, it's especially important when weaning a toddler from bottle feeding. While your child may be ready to make the transition, she might not want to let go of her beloved bottle—and that's okay! Be patient and don't give up hope if it takes your child a few days or weeks to adjust. The easiest

The Perfect Breakfast

The healthiest meal to jumpstart a day is also the easiest one to prepare – Breakfast.  I have two kids, and my problem lies in my youngest son Yahmir.  It is a real chore to lure kids to the breakfast table. 
His class starts at 7am so I have to wake him up early for his school service fetches him at around 6:15 am.  Usually, he has no appetite to eat in early mornings unlike his big brother.  Before he starts whining, I am already insisting him to eat telling him that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and his tummy will get upset if he will not eat.  If he eats breakfast, his stomach will be very happy about it and his body will be able to use the food to get the energy going, and send him off to school all fuelled up for the day - well at least until morning break!  I make sure that he eats even a little. 

Kids going to school need breakfast but often balk at the thought of eating in their morning rush out the door.  So in order to lure him to eat breakfast, I prepare simple and easy to eat healthy foods.

Here are some of my breakfast menus that might be of help in your breakfast preparations for your kids.

ü  Cereals and milk, I let my kid choose what kind of cereal he likes to eat when we go to the grocery store or supermarket, he likes cornflakes and chocolate cereals
ü  Egg and milk.  Hardboiled or scrambled or sunny side up and milk
ü  Cereal drink.  Best to give, if my son has colds and really has no appetite to eat
ü  Hashbrown and milk.  I make my own version of sweet potato hashbrowns
ü  Hotdog/ham sandwich and milk 
ü  Peanut butter and blueberry jam sandwich and milk. (Strawberry jam is his favorite alternative jam)
ü  Muffins and milk
ü  Oatmeal and milk
ü  Pancake and milk
ü  Tapsilog (Beef Tapa, fried rice and egg) I usually serve rice meal breakfast  during weekends
ü  Sometimes, he requests for instant noodles
Milk is always included in his breakfast, and another glass at night before sleeping. To attract and lure him to eat his morning meal, I include him in planning for the week’s breakfast menu, I let him list them down and together we will post it at our refrigerator’s door J.
