Switching to Cow’s Milk

Kyler didn’t want cows milk whatsoever! Maybe because breast milk is so sweet the cows couldn’t compare.

At Kyler’s 12 month check-up the pediatrician informed me that I could be Nesquik strawberry or chocolate powder into the milk.

Well, he didn’t like the strawberry at all either! I was a scardy cat and wasn’t quite ready to give him chocolate so kept trying the strawberry and plain every so often. Well a week went by and he still wouldn’t take it…

I tried the chocolate and it worked! I only added a tiny bit, it was barely discolored and he loved the milk.

Now he will drink the milk without chocolate and I’m only feeding him my milk at bed time… I still need to get out of doing this but it’s the only way to put him to sleep happy right now.

If you have an suggestions please feel free to help! 🙂

Wagon Wheel Treats

Graduates Finger Foods-Wagon Wheels

These are puffed grain treats with real apples. They’re great for little ones learning how to self-feed.

Kyler wouldn’t eat these treats for awhile. I finally tried to give him one again a couple months later and he loved it! Maybe it was because he enjoys other treats more he didn’t want to waste his time with these.

Now he’s excited to have these and they take awhile for him to finish so it keeps him busy!

These are perfect for on the go!

I bought the Parent’s Choice little wheels and he seems to like them just as much as the Graduates.

Your toddler is ready for these treats when they walk independently, uses fingers to self feed and begin to explore utensils, is familiar with eating solid food and bites easily through a variety of textures.

Graduates and Parent’s Choice treats can be found in your local grocery store for a reasonable price!
