You know how you do something that frnakly you just do, but then you tell someone else and they think your brilliant. Don’t you just love it when that happens? Here you are, going about your business just thinking your a mediocre mom and then someone tells you one of your ideas is brilliant. Well, maybe she just thought is was kinda cool, but you hear “You’re brilliant” so work with me here.
So here’s the deal. You know when you have fed your baby a bottle or a boob for a year and then suddenly you tell them, ok, time to switch , it’s cow from here on out. Yeah, I’d be a bit frustrated too. So I have a little trick up my sleeve to help make the transition go a little smoother. I take the sippy (or bottle) and fill it 3/4 full with a yogurt smoothie (we used organic so our girls wouldn’t hit puberty at 7) and then 1/4 full of whole milk (once again organic for us). Then I gradually added more milk and less smoothie until we were at 100% milk.
Apparently breast milk (and formula) is pretty sweet and cow milk is a bit salty so the smoothie takes the salty edge off. My children who previously were having nothing to do with the cows milk were suddenly gulping the stuff down. Problem solved. See how nicely that works for me. I hope if you have this problem it works for you. No need to call me brillaint. Mediocre will do just nicely.
