The Light at the End of the Tunnel

Yesterday evening when we picked Ethan up from Mrs Tan’s place, she proudly announced that Ethan willingly gobbled up every last bit of the rusk cereal mixed with Isomil!  However, when she tried feeding him the Isomil from the bottle, he only took a mouthful and then rejected it.  But she noticed that there was slight improvement, and he appeared to begin accepting the Isomil little by little.

I am now providing 1.5 feeds of EBM to Ethan while I am away at work (previously it was 2 feeds), in the hope that the remainder of the 0.5 feed can be covered by the Isomil in due course.  I am also slowly training myself to express milk at work just once.  It is an arduous process, but one which I knew I would have to undertake sooner or later.

This morning, Mrs Tan asked if she could give him 2 pieces of rusks for his breakfast instead of one.  Of course, I said!  Our boy is a healthy eater :)  Why not?

Good to hear that, it’s not easy to feed formula for a breastfed child becoz breastmilk is SWEET!

Joyce says: You betcha it ain’t easy…

Good luck again.

Joyce says: Thanks again, dear.

It will take some time for him to get use to it. It took Belle about 3-4 mths to get used to formula. Just hang in there.

Joyce says: 3-4 months?! This I gotta let my baby sitter know :)

Yeah, the little one can decide how many rusks he can take la. At this age, I think he is able to tell when he’s had enough… :)

Joyce says: You’re right! His facial expression and body expression says it all!
