    And I feel you with the annoyance of when these babies just come and carry their father’s faces ho ha! But no shaking, she’s a gorgeous girl  :cloud9:

    My dear, you gatsta make that pap oh! These kids and their picky behaviour sha. You won’t believe I’m still struggling with one of my twins, at almost 5 years old oh! Na so so Cerelac and Indomie and bread…chicken sometimes. Apart from that, it’s been war!

    Try introducing solids little by little…maybe when you’re eating, a taste here and a taste there. That way, it opens up their palettes to new things :yes:

    Chai, @annie, you want to make me give birth again oh! Such ADORABLE PICTURES  :heart:   :heart:   :heart:   :cloud9:   :cloud9:   :cloud9:

    Yes dear, use the Easter break to try with her new things. With some luck, she will take her eating habits from you, since her Dad already won in the resemblance department  ;-)

    Good morning, dear Mamas!

     

    I hope you all had a great Easter! How was the first Easter as a Mommy? I’m sure you were all like “which public holiday?!”. Because with these beautiful blessings from God, no more holiday oh. LOL!

    @annie, were you able to try the pap thing this weekend? Did she accept it? Meanwhile, I :haha: so hard at your comment of dollar breaking our hearts! Over breaking oh, Ann! I haven’t had the liver to order this whole year, but I have to do so this week, as our supplies don dey deplete, and my girls have decided to show me that their feet can grow! Imagine me that bought 2 shoe sizes of school shoes at the beginning of the session. They wore the first one for 1st term. By 2nd term, it was tight, and we had to switch to shoe 2. Can you imagine these kids have outgrown the 2nd one? I taya! Thank God for Mall For Africa. As for the diapers, I haven’t heard about Molpix oh. You say it’s good? I hope so oh, at least, let’s have good alternatives  :good:

    @dew hun, hope our suggestions were useful. It’s not easy, but God is our strength. How are you coping now hun? Have you started looking for someone to assist you at work?

    @adaoraa mama, how are you hun? Our is our gorgeous baby? Your birth story was too beautiful! I’m so in awe of you  :cloud9:. How have you been settling into your new role? Thank God for our mothers oh :heart:

    @ldike, soon and very soon :yahoo: :yahoo: . We are praying with you hun! :hugs:

    @mrs-al, long time no hear. Hope you and baby JOA are doing great hun :hugs:

    Hello Nicole, hi all… i was unable to try the pap last weekend because we had to travel out of Lagos, didn’t want to start carrying too many things, but i tried the pap last night and it worked. Looks like babe will love to eat everything we eat, i mashed little rice and fed her and she started screaming, didn’t know if it was out of excitement..lol..all i knew was that she kept opening her mouth for more…
