Miserable Milk Feeding

Not sure about you all, but, since I become mommy, I, myself 'hate' milk so much. Actually, I do love to drink milk and esp when I'm expecting: Imagine, in a day, I can consume milk 5x!! He,he.....But, guess, since I love to drink milk during pregnancy, it make both my sons 'hate' drinking milk so much(indirectly)......I still love to drink milk but not feeding the milk, for sure.


For Jona, since baby, I just have problem of feeding him milk. And, I feel bad when he doesn't want to drink milk at all throughout the night (which initially, I didn't know that it is normal). When he is 4 or 5 mths old, he can survive without milk for 8 or 9 hours during day time. Never cry for a milk. Thanks to my patient mom, that use spoon to feed him if he couldn't finish the milk from the bottle......


And, I thought I might get escape from Iz. Who know, another culprit who hate milk. With Iz, I'm too impatient of using spoon, so, what I do. I use 'syringe'!! Hey, it is even faster. I even purposely purchase 10ml syringe for this purpose(keep several as stock). People thought using syringe for injecting medicine, etc....but, definitely not for me.



Now, Iz so clever, when he couldn't finish his milk or when he cried asking for milk and I prepare for him, suddenly after one or two sip, he stop....automatic, he will told me "Momi, pump, pump" - meaning get the syringe and pump the milk into his mouth!!!


Iz just bully me.......He even dare tell me "I finished milk at auntie house, but, home, I don't finish milk"......And, his nanny confirm that Iz always finish the milk that she prepare for him without much problem....


Is my sons 'bully' his mommy??

Lz, you are so cute! May be I should feed Elizabeth with syringe too. So that she won't cry out loud or trying so hard to escape when she saw the syringe.

Why? Cause she hates medicine. And, she learn that every time she saw the syringe, it's time to take medicine. hahaha...

hi mamajo, thanks for dropping by my blog. always welcomed anytime.

if isaac understand, can you do a reward chart, for example, tell him, if he finished his milk without a hassle, give him a sticker, and when he gets 10 stickers, he can have something. can use this strategy with others, but lengthening the process with more stickers.

hope this helps :)

Maybe you can let them try other brand of milk.

Health Freak Mommy said...

Aiyoh, it takes a lot of time to syringe feed milk eh? Have u tried other brands of milk or even fresh milk? My gals love Marigold HL milk and drink lots of it. Sherilyn also loves the Fern Leaf chocolate packet milk. Maybe you can try them on your son too.

Wen: The problem is they dislike proper meal too, except at nanny home or daycare....

Tot's mom: He,he...my sons also dislike rice too esp Isaac.

Chanelwong: It is not milk branding problem.....change milk, still the same

Everydayhealy: Good idea. You know, now, Isaac so good in pumping water using syringe all by himself :)

Smartphone: Thanks for dropping by. Will definitely visit your blog soon

Sweetpea: Thanks! But, it won't work. He just refuse to drink except pumping using syringe while he busy playing toys....Hopefully he will outgrow of it just like his kor kor.....

Mybabybay & Healthfreakmommy: No use, I have change several milks - Bebelac/Sustagen, etc....hey, you know what, pumping using syringe is even faster and easy...he,he..compare to him suck slowly by himself.....
