I've been wanting to ween her off of infant formula because, not only is this stuff expensive, but I would like for her to star receiving her nutrition from fruits, veggies, and whole grains. As you know, I LOVE to cook, and I am anxiously waiting to prepare her meals!
As for now, I try to get a daily dose of Oatmeal into her diet. I start by using Old Fashion Quaker Oats, and cook them according to the directions on the container using water. Actually, I usually cook them a bit longer than suggested so that the oats are completely dissolved, and the liquid becomes a bit slimy.
|I love Old Fashioned Quaker Oats, its the best!|
Then i pour the over-cooked oatmeal into the blender along with 8oz of Whole Milk, and 8oz of Similac Ready-To-Serve Infant Formula. I do not sweeten this mixture at all, no added sugar, no cinnamon, no nutmeg. I find that the similac has its own flavor that Olivia enjoys.
After its blended out, I pour the mixture into several bottles, it usually make 4 8oz bottles!
