Remember this post?
I was so desperate to find a formula milk that Izzuddin can drink but he rejected most of the milk that I gave him. I even bought 1kg of Dumex Dugro Cereal just so that he will try drinking something sweet, but nope.. hopeless. And at that time, it was already crucial coz we can't really rely on fresh milk and UHT only (which Izzuddin really2 likes!)
I no longer think about the highest DHA, AAAA, immunofortis and those additional stuff they put in FM.
(FM bought was Enfagrow and you know the price!)
I am now concerned that he needs a drink that can quench his thirst and at the same time provide him calcium & protein. Yes, if dia tak particular, I might be giving the best or expensive FM available in the market, but thinking that most FM will taste a bit similar, i passed this choice.
Until one of my officemate suggested, Dumex Dugro Choc... she said her daughter drank that sampailah umur dia sekarang 6years. oooh... i thought, maybe Izzuddin is like his abi, cannot drink anything 'white'.. but susu coklat boleh (as long as he doesn't see the white thing)
hmmm... really eh?
So I went to Carrefour and bought the smallest packet of Dumex Dugro Choc Lazat 1+.
Takdelah small pun, i don't even remember the grams of the packet.
And balik2 I bancuh skit masuk cawan... and gave him the cup. He sipped and macam suka. Again he sipped again... and again... and again....
This is something interesting... hehe..
So now what? Boleh masuk botol plak tak??
I tried.... Nope. He doesn't want to even drink it.
So I poured the milk into the cup again... and he continued sipping it.
(Rugi tak amik any pics of him sipping the milk. I was busy holding the cup, anyway)
So there you go... he chose this one in particular.
And his way of drinking the milk, is by a cup. No, sippie cup pun tak boleh... he refused it.
Nak minum macam orang besar. Cheh!
By the way, how did I convince him drinking the milk if it was choc colour anyway.
The day before, I poured his favourite UHT choc flavour Dutch Lady into the cup.. and asked him to drink it. He liked it that he can see the colour, so he drank it coz it was sweet... so yeah, first step succeeded.
So the next step was to give the same cup and when he looked at the colour, same... so of course he drank the FM!! So now I'm happy :D
When abi saw this, his first reaction "Berapa harga susu ni??"
Yeah, I'm sure this will be your concern after this , after we stop giving him EBM.
But luckily, your son pilih susu murah... so don't think it will burden our pockets.
Nursery pun dah bagi feedback, he drinks it in the cup, but will drink it from the blue straw UHT tu.
He'll drink half a cup and stop... so basically this is the FM I will be giving to nursery.

But since knowing that I won't be going for duty travel as scheduled... is it really necessary?
Some mothers also think that its the right time to even wean him completely.
But when I pump, I still will get at least 4oz + 4 oz... so to compliment this, I'll be sending 2bottles x 3oz , 1 UHT and the rest is FM. I'll start this week. So later on, we can stop sending UHT and give it only when he's at home.
So if somebody can suggest a cubic bottle/cup that has a straw please telll me ah...
so we don't have to burden nursery and he can drink the FM by himself without tumpah sana sini.
I guess I am a bit relieved, sbb no pressure on collecting EBM stock anymore.
But i'm sure gonna miss this routine task once Izzuddin really does wean off nanti.
That's another episode for us to face later.
