I double boiled some beet root + chicken soup for Baby C the other day.  She loved the soup to bits.  Here’s her colorful dinner: Porridge with purple sweet potato, pumpkin, organic purple cabbage, fish, pork and garlic; beet root soup and E.Excel’s Nutrifresh. Double […]

Lean Food Premium Organic Yoghurt

Lean Food Premium Organic Yoghurt

This is the organic blueberry yoghurt that I bought for Baby C. It’s a tad sour and my sweetie-pie didn’t like it. I had to put some homemade pineapple jam to sweeten the yoghurt. But I really like this yoghurt, especially the mango flavored one. […]

Baby C’s Breakfast

Baby C’s Breakfast

This is Baby C’s breakfast today:

Freshly squeezed orange juice, Millenium cactus juice with probiotics, organic blueberry yoghurt, hard-boiled egg yolk mashed with avocado, some crushed Pureen baby biscuits and a dollop of unsalted butter.

I find that the organic blueberry yoghurt by Lean Food (made in Australia) a tad sour for Baby C’s liking. I added some homemade pineapple jam (which my mum made) to the yoghurt for a tinge of sweetness…. but still my sweetie-pie didn’t quite like the yoghurt. When I mixed the yoghurt with the eggs, she ate them. My sweetie-pie has started to get fed-up with hard-boiled egg yolks. I now have to alternate it with steamed egg and fried egg.

I try to feed Baby C at least half an egg a day to boost her weight increase and to strengthen her immune system and body so that she’s one healthy baby with an average weight by the time she goes in for her surgery in a week’s time.

Baby C’s Meals When We Travel

Baby C’s Meals When We Travel

With our impending trip to Penang this Thursday, I am now worried about Baby C’s meals.  She only eats porridge and has no interest in cereals or jar food.  I am now cracking my head on what to feed her during our 1.5-day stay in Penang.  This being said, I will still buy a pack of chicken flavored cereal to bring to Penang and feed her with it.  Will also bring along some butter buns, which she likes. If she doesn’t want to eat cereal, she will survive on breast milk, buns and egg yolks!   Should be ok wat right… as it’s only for 1.5 days.
