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?

While it is true that many portions of the world have lifted travel bans and were now accepting visitors, the threat of the new variant has caused many to stay in their homes. If things continue to worsen, we may see 2020 repeat itself with numerous countries locking themselves and telling people to stay in their homes despite many being vaccinated.

With the continuous growth of Korean dining, K-dramas and K-pop culture, it remains to be a pillar in spreading Korean drinking culture around the globe. When it comes to weekend relaxation or holiday celebration , samgyeopsal or Korean BBQ paired with Soju is always an instant hit with Pinoys. With different soju variants to choose from, which do you prefer, the original Korean soju or the flavored soju?
