The one with... and the time has come.

Khayr is turning 17months in 2 days time. (Sadly) We're planning to wean him off from breastfeeding. If you are a regular here, you would have recalled that our attempt to do that earlier this year (masa Khayr 1 tahun and I was like so busy with outstation work) was a total failure (guna iphone ni tak reti pulak nak cari link).

Perhaps the decision was made too soon. Perhaps we ourselves weren't ready. Perhaps we didn't have a proper plan. Well above all I personally think that we didn't expect it was going to be that challenging!

Well who are we kidding here. After 12 good months (then), of course its not gonna be easy!

And what's more now it has been 17 months -__-'

Anyway from reading and after seeking advice from friends, here's the 1 month plan. Which is going to take place tomorrow onwards (god, please let this be a success.. insyaAllah).

1st week - His evening intake of EBM (i.e. in between lunch & dinner) will be replaced with FM.

2nd week - His morning intake of EBM (i.e. in between breakfast & lunch) will be replaced with FM.

3rd week - His after wake-up in the morning intake of direct feeding (i.e. before i go to work) will be replaced with FM.

*by now if he can accept FM i will be totally thankful and bersyukur dah cause it will mean that he'll be totally on FM during the daytime. only left with the challenge to 'refuse' the direct feeding at night.

So 4th week onwards, will be the time for me to train him to take FM at night instead of direct feeding.

Semoga urusan ni dipermudahkan Allah. *amin*

We've bought Anmum stage 3 (for 1year old and above) and really hope that he's gonna accept it.

Hmmm with the above plan tabled before us, I am all ready to execute it. I hope I will be granted enough preseverance (ok not sure with the spelling) and determination to go through the adverse reaction whatsoever Khayr may show :'( Khayr sayang, we can do this ok!

Yeah all that except these 2 kemusykilan:

1. When he refuses the FM (if laaa), how do we know that he doesn't like the brand, or he's just simply adjusting? How many attempts should we try before changing to another brand? Or should we just being persistent with the hope that there will come a time when he will eventually give in?

2. Is it ok if we were to use the same bottle he has been using to take EBM previously (to introduce FM) or do we have to use a totally new bottle? I mean, does it even matter?

Please, if you can just share dear mommies out there? Calling for a sharing is caring session! xX

Till later~*
