happiness is Watching your baby devour food with gusto!

BLW works!

Emma is now 7 months old. She's eating all kinds of stuff with us on the table. I'm watching the sugar and salt content, though. She mostly eats steamed vegetables, and grilled meat or pan-fried tofu.

In this photo above, she is munching on a shiitake mushroom, lightly pan-fried with olive oil.

So she could eat spaghetti and meatballs with us. Steak and baked potatoes. Grilled fish with miso. Etc.
She snacks on crackers with soft camembert cheese. Bread with cheese. Steamed japanese sweet potatoes.
She eats tons of fruits and veggies!

She does not choke because we observe what the book advises us to do with her.
I strongly recommend all parents and would be parents to read the book before doing this. Once you get the hang of it, it's so useful!
Our mealtimes is a happy occasion, three times a day!
We must treat meals for her as playtimes, as exploring time, instead of a chore.

Plus, Emma is still fully breast-fed. Thank God for that.

I'm lovin' it.

Going out with baby

Tips on how to always be ready for trips with your baby/toddler:

  • Replenish the diaper bag once you get home. Don't wait until your next trip.
  • Bring wet wipes, tissue, change of clothes and diaper, bibs.
  • Strawberries, apples and oranges are my favorite take out food for Emma because they stay fresh a long time uncut/unopened. We can always cut stuff up with a table knife at the restaurant.

got milk?

As a breastfeeding mom, drinking low-fat milk is my morning routine.
It's a huge source of calcium for my breast milk.

The calcium in fresh milk is the best because it is the easiest to absorp. That's why I always drink milk.
For my bones, and especially, for my baby.
