No I’m not weaning Z off the boobies yet. Baru je buat entry ini dengan penuh semangat waja, mana mungkin mahu bercerai susu. Enggak!
Z had his 1yo immunization on his birthday. Oh I have to jot this down. Nanti takut lupa! He didn’t cry AT ALL! It’s like nothing happened. Dia pandang muka Dr Sharmila tenung je. Mama yang ngeri tengok jarum masuk full dalam peha dia. Sangat la kagum! Told ya he’s my tough cookie!
Okay back to the subject.
Discuss itu ini about his development. Then I raised my concern that Z is underweight. She admitted that Z is on the lighter side for a boy. Tengok graph boleh nampak la Z’s weight is below the graph line. Bawah sikit je. Paed kata it’s okay coz he was not well for the past few months so that explains the weight. Lagipun berat dia stagnant. Bukan drop. She recommended that we feed Z with more cheese, butter, yoghurt and milk. And she specifically mentioned fresh milk.
I heard about fresh milk being introduced to toddlers is better than formula. Especially when there are issues now relating to the high sugar content in formula milk. Now I know why IY is so hyper! He’s got that sugar rush all the time! I always wonder where do all the energy come from. Rupanya Pediasure vanilla yang sedap dan manis itu. I’m trying to wean IY off the bottle soon and change to fresh milk but that’s a different entry. That’s a different challenge for me coz he doesn’t like the taste.
Back to Z – I’m thinking on how to add fresh milk into his diet. Selain masak letak susu and cheese, I’m also planning to feed him Dutch Lady susu kotak tu. But slowly la, cannot too drastic. I don’t want his tummy “terkejut”. Paeds in the UK and US recommend fresh milk as supplementary milk to kids. Kita kat Malaysia yang dilonggokkan dengan too many brands of formula milk. Berpinau mata nak pilih brand mana yang sesuai dengan perut anak dan poket mak bapak.
I have many friends who introduced their kids to fresh milk and had no problems. In fact lagi mudah dan senang coz just cucuk straw and minum. Tak payah ber-thermos bagai bila travelling.
IY hates the white fresh milk. I hope Z doesn’t.
Wish me luck!
