Squeeky Clean

When Jonathan boy was barely 1 year old and his molars have yet to erupt, I gave him baby biscuits to keep himself entertained while we enjoy our meals peacefully. Now that his two upper first molars has fully erupted with the right bottom first molar and two upper cuspid erupting, he could enjoy more table food.

While dining out, I will normally call for a plate of plain rice just for Jonathan boy. If he is lucky, he gets to have some tofu, fish or vegetables to compliment the rice. I’ll leave the rice in front of him with a spoon or sometimes he demand for our chopsticks or fork.  And there he goes pooking or scooping the rice. When he gets fedup from no rice going into his mouth, there comes his fingers picking up the chunk of rice to feed his hungry stomach. That can keep him occupied throught the whole meal time without any fuss.

Now, Daddy & Mommy can enjoy meals peacefully with a MESS to clean up after that!

P/S: Always check that I have the bib and extra clothing to change if needed.

    ha hah…. that’s a good way to keep him occupied. At least you can eat your meal in peace.

    Sting – You haven’t seen him throwing it on the floor yet. Wait till he’s mad. 😛

    Ann – Jonathan is not interested in toys. He prefers food which can keep his mouth working. 😛 And I’ve started to mix minced meat in his porridge.

    Ryan mami – As long as there’s food, he will sit quietly for the entire meal.

    Littlelamb – I do that too but have to watch him closely as sometimes he tend to bite off the soft bone.

    Anggie, MC – Yalor, felt so sorry of the mess. We are thinking to bring along the mini dust pan to clean up for them. Hihi…

    Pet – If we ordered food he can eat, we will give him too. Btw, thanks for the tag.

    Merryn – Cuter and naughtier. *slap head*

    Hui Sia – This way it give us a peaceful time to enjoy our meal.

    June – Surely there will be a mess. I hate the mess but I think it’s worth coz you get to enjoy your meal peacefully.

    Joanne – Yalor, I also felt that his teeth is growing too fast. Not good right? Coz they said it will decay faster.

    Christine – When Lyan Fung can chew properly, you can try this method. Hope it works for you.

    Adrine – I’m glad this can keep him occupied.
