Sebab byk interesting development after he's wean off.
Ok la mula2 nak share tips how to wean off your toddler (gulp!):-
1) talk to him slowly that it's time to wean off - definitely didnt work for umar. He never care to listen.
2) try la sapu asam jawa, sos tomato, coffee and all. - it almost work for umar but he became immune after day 5 and just ignore the taste and keep on bfeed. Not to mention the sudden 40deg fever for 3 days straight. Drama boy! - obviously gone case.
3) try to ignore his cry, and cuba berhati kering and jgn kasi bfeed - trust me u will lost the patience after day 5. That's y i stop using this method and give up to wean off during fasting month bcoz it's so stressed up and lack of sleep. - gone case and umar happy again.
4) this is hardcore step and u need full support from your husband to understand and to bear with the situation. I talk to umar. You are big boy now. U cant drink from mummy. You have to drink from bottle. Bila dia melalak n meraung, i have to jentik tapak kaki dia sampai dia mngalah nak bottle. I swear i only jentik n paling teruk pon pukul tapak kaki time dia meraung. Of couse this involve tears from me too. But i just cant take it anymore. My body so damn tired i need to wean off asap. I pray to Allah so much to make it easy for both of us. After 2 days, it success! Umar tak meraung n tak mintak langsung bfeed. Bila dia nak tido, dia cuma cakap "dukung umar".
So i just dukung, nyanyi2, baca doa, tepuk2 botot, baca selawat n dia tetido sendiri.
He drink 4x formula milk now.
Pagi, ptg, malam before tido n tgh2 malam bila dia terbgun around kol 3am.
He ate alot too. Imagine he ate 2 hashbrowns / 3 slice of pancakes for his breakfast.
Lunch n dinner mmg mkn nasi pon habis.
I started this wean off process after 3rd day of raya. Sbb kebetulan husband cuti kjr seminggu.
Just the right time to train umar. So takde la org tu stress tido knr kacau kan...
Changes after umar wean off:-
1) super easy to put him in car seat in long journey sbb dia pandai layan diri sendiri and tetido tanpa byk ragam.
2) he talks alot. He can make lot of full sentence now. It's so funny and amaze to see his developement. I know the next thg i need to be ready is his potty training. Lets take 2 months break before we start that kie? Rasa happy sbb wean off tak abes lg.
3) become independent and more creative when play. More focus now.
4) when he sleeps, he love to ask me to sing this song:-
- 1 lil 2 lil 3 lil indian...
And he ask me to change it to escalator.
So i have to sing like this...
- 1 lil 2 lil 3 lil escalator...
And he asked me sing change escalator to lift. Then to moksu. To daddy. To ball.
The funniest thg he asked just now before sleep "mummy sing lil berakkk"
Wakakaka aku gelak mcm apa.
Tp nak kasi dia tido nye pasal nyanyi je la...
- 1 lil 2 lil 3 lil berak... Omg!
The price that i have to pay for weaning him off.
Best tol umar buli mak dia.
After few songs he will fall asleep.
5) when you wean off, automatically it will be easy to sleep seperate bed. Hehe so happy for this. More space for me and no more sakit belakang. Bfeed moms sure paham nape sakit belakang kan. Mengiring too much! I love to see him sleep in his cot. Rasa berbaloi beli cot aka katil toddler ni dulu hahaha.
There's more. But thats all i can think of for now. Im so happy happy happy and syukur ya Allah sebab permudahkan akhirnye. Umar pon da ok melekat ngn daddy dia now. Fuhh bolehla pakai baju liplap2 penuh beading mcm rozita che wan pasni. Hehe just kidding.
Kuasa la nak gado ngn mummy. Penat tau berdrama tiap2 malam ngn mummy. Baik aku mengalah. Kalau mood mummy baik mesti dia rajin bawak jalan2.
