My boys (almost 5 year old twins) like most growing boys of any age, pretty much eat like a vacuum cleaner stuck on high. So I try to make sure I have a lot of snacks around just in case … Continue reading
I have an exclusively breast fed 5 month old little boy that is now very interested in holding things and putting them straight into his mouth. As we all sit at the dinner table nightly we have noticed he is very interested in the food we eat but I am a believer in no food except breast milk for the first 6 months so I knew I needed to come up with something that would entertain him while we ate dinner. I should also mention I am a very lucky human milk truck that has the ability to make A LOT of extra milk. Enter the infant Popsicle
It is a way for him to start learning different textures while still be EBF. It seemed easy enough so I went for it.
Things you need:
Breast milk (I do not know how formula works but if it can be frozen I guess you can use it)
A pacifier or something to use to freeze in it for the baby to hold it
Ice tray or other container to freeze just enough in that baby can put in mouth.
1. Pour the milk into the container
2. Put the pacifier into the milk
3. Put into freezer
5. Hold under hot water until milk separates from container
6. Give to baby and watch them enjoy it

Remember to use a bib because it does get very very messy!!
