Yummy Rusky

Earlier this evening, after we had dinner, and Jayden also had his meal, he was unusually fussy... carried him also fussed... put in playpen also fussed... sat on sofa also fussed... so when it comes to babies... there are 1001 reasons why they might be fussy... intead of guessing whether it was teething, gassy tummy etc. I just wanted him to stop fussing, and the best way is to........ distract him with something.

I had some Farley's Rusk biscuits in the cupboard and was waiting for Jayden to be ready for self feeding before I offered it to him. And I thought, very good idea to give it to him now... if he likes it, he will stop fussing!

And true enough, he stopped fussing almost immediately when I handed a Rusk biscuit to him.


What is this? Something new to me...

Let me try and put it into my mouth... mmmmmmm I like it :)

He was chewing and sucking it for some time till it broke up into pieces... it gets really soft with the contact of saliva.


This is after he finished the WHOLE rusk biscuit... hehheheh... was quite messy to clean up but it was worth it, he really enjoyed himself! :) and we had some peace and quiet for some time!

Note: Always supervise your child when self feeding, no matter how safe you might think the food is!!!!

20 friends spoke up!:

Fussy mum said...

Serene said...

Little Inbox said...

This is a good way to train Jayden to feed himself. :)

mommy to chumsy said...

oo..glad he likes the rusk. he looks so sexy in the red tshirt :D

MommyAngel said...

Maybe Jayden is too boring so he fuss …… same like my Angel ;)

I am glad that he loves his rusk, so have to let him drink more water was those rusks are kind of heaty for babies :) Oh …. His is just so cute in the picture lar …. So fair!!! But his shirt opening is a bit big hor, or is that the ‘style’ wearing the shirt???

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Luckily you have found a way to stop his fussiness.

Not bad ya, he managed to finish the big piece of rusk all by himself. Good boy.

Kristie said...

thanks maria, fussy mum, mommy to chumsy

gift from God, ya he always gives this innocent look when i he's blur hhahah
yeah 2ma, i like this shirt...

very light cotton... good for hot weather... :) yup i love to see him relish food that he feeds by himself!

ya queenie, he loved it.

serene, actually i was not surprised that he can finish the whole piece, cos if he likes something, he will finish everything heheh... hahha innocent so cute ya...

agree little inbox, this is the best way to let him try out, no force :)

caroline, ya lah i think all babies are the same ya, cannot sit still one hehehe... yup i wont give it to him very often, maybe only once in a while like a treat hehe... and make him drink more water! hahah that shirt was bought from bali... a very thin material light cotton shirt... very soft, good for warm weather... it's quite big around the neck.. so sometimes it will slide off one shoulder or expose his 'cleavage' hahaha.... but it's very comfy!

joanne.. ya lah... i cant stand crying one hhahahah... must quickly find a way to shut him up :p ya he likes it so much but cannot eat often... too heaty.

Esmeralda said...

Wow.... "sexy" boy in off-shoulder red shirt lar... so hot! Hehehehe.... he can finish one whole rusk ah.... clever boy Jayden...

slavemom said...

Since u're starting to train him to self-feed, y not get a bib with crumb catcher? There'll be less mess to clean up. :)

Mummy Gwen said...

He is so cute eating the rusk. Jayden is really fair hor...hehe

Fann said...

Jayden's hair is growing so fast!!! WOowowo he look like a big boy now :) miss his hugs and smile :)

Adrine said...

That's what I do too. Giving Elyssa something to eat is a sure way of keeping her from fussing.

But nowadays, I give her normal biscuits cos the baby biscuits are very messy. Need to give plenty of water tho.

Bonnie said...

His face still consider clean after he ate the rusk.. and boy he is so fair!

agnes said...

so jealous lah.. he is so fair!!!

Cookie said...

what a handsome boy you have, too, mommy kristie!

Kristie said...

slavemom, this rusk biscuit is mushy when eaten... so not many crumbs will fall off... hehe.. thanks for ur advice!

mummygwen, ya lor, everyone says he is so fair!

adrine, so true... it gets all mushy once jayden eats the rusk! what biscuit are u giving elyssa now?

bonnie, clean ah? hehe... yup he's so fair!
