Bottle Feeding Baby – Nov 2012

Me: You haven’t eaten very much and you haven’t drank your milk – where are you going to get your strength?

D: What’s ‘strength’?

Me: [Does an impression of a strong man.] Strong – you know what strong is.

D: OK, I’ll have some milk – warm though.

Me: Good.

D: Mum, does hair have muscles?

Me: No, but you can still have strong hair. Strong means it won’t break easily.

Run, run, as fast as you can!

D: Look at my gingerbread man I made!

D: I had a giant glass of water at Vikki’s today – it was SOOO big and I drank SOOO much that there was only a little bit left in the bottom.
Me: That’s good – it’s important to drink lots of water when it’s hot.
D: AND milk – so your bones don’t all break and your body just slithers onto the floor into a big pile.
