Baby Dig Loves Dragon Fruit


Ah, it's been weeks I didn't post anything. What can I say, I have busy days. Baby Dig is now 9 months old. He is able to crawl now and learn to stand up. I can't let him alone by himself for too long. I have to always look at him or else I will be worry about what he's doing. Well, you know the feeling if you happened to experience once.

At his age, Baby Dig has already eaten almost anything. Well, actually it is because he always asks for what I hold in my hands. Anything. So, everytime I have some meal, I offer him one. And he usually grab what I give him or simply opens with mouth. Sooo funny...

Baby Dig has eaten home cook meal. I prepare him food in the morning so he can have breakfast at around 9 a.m. He eats soft rice with veggies and chicken or tofu or fish or fried tempeh. He likes what I cook. Alhamdulillah.

I once bought him baby biscuits, but, he refused to eat them. My elder sons had them after all. He also doesn't like porridge or baby food I bought. I think he really loves my cooking. He eats 3 times a day, in the morning, around noon and in the afternoon. Each meal time has 4 hours in between.

What about fruit?


My eldest son, Big D, didn't really like fruits when he was younger. It was because I didn't introduce fruits to him as early as possible. Well, new mom makes mistakes, right? So, for Baby Dig, I don't wanna make the same mistake. I tried to introduce some fruits in any varieties, but Baby Dig seemed not too interested. I began to worry... Moms always worry, right?

One morning, I ate dragon fruit and was thinking to give Baby Dig a try. I was worried about the seeds. I was afraid the seeds would burden his stomach. So, I filtered the fruit and served him the liquid only. No fruit flesh, no seeds.

He loved it!

The next time I gave him a small amount of dragon fruit with the flesh and seeds. He chewed it happily and asked for another. I was thinking that I would wait for the allergic reaction or something before I gave him another try.

The next morning, baby Dig showed no bad reaction. His poo was reddish but in good consistency. So, I decided to continue the menu. Alhamdulillah.

After some time, I read about giving dragon fruit for baby. It is one of the recommended fruit for babies anyway. Served raw and the seeds aren't big deal for babies' digestive. That's what I see with Baby Dig. And what I like the most from dragon fruit is its fiber. It really really helps a lot in Baby Dig's poo. Dragon fruit itself is also rich in vitamin C. Tastes good and easy to chew even for 5 teethed baby like Baby Dig.

Kids Activity: Three Legged Compound Word Race

Hi, Moms and Dads. Learning by playing is kid's stuff. What about building vocabulary? There is a fun activity to do with your kids explained in this guest post by Education.com, it's three legged compound word race.

If you are interested in guest posting, please feel free to contact me.

Happy reading!

In second grade, kids work hard to "sound out" new words as they build up their reading vocabulary. Sometimes, it’s easy; other times, more challenging…and if you’re new reader, having a few patterns up your sleeve can really help things along. One very useful tool is understanding “compound words”—long words that are really made from two shorter, familiar ones, combined.

Here’s a goofy party or park game for a bunch of second grade kids who are learning to read long words. Play it once, play it many times—it should still be good for learning and laughs.

Why Moms of Today Are More Fragile Compared To Their Seniors

I read a nice blog post yesterday about moms of today who seem more fragile than moms in the past. I agree a lot with the article and I try to write something about it, too. As a mom of three who live in a modern life, I experience growing kids in different situations. My first son was born 8 years ago at the time when facebook was just about to gain its popularity. I remember my brother told me to try facebook and he said, "people of our ages are there too." What he actually meant was he tried to convince me that this kind of social media was not too young for me unlike the previous social media which was fully loaded by youngsters: friendsters.I, at first, was not sure to join facebook but then I read an article in a magazine and then I decided to try it out. And here I am now, a facebooker. Not long after that I had another baby, my second son who was born only 14 months after his big brother. I raised these two kids as if I had twins. They looked alike and they swallowe…

Purity And Prayer: An Islamic Children Rhyming Picture Book

In my younger years I once loved listening to nasheed (Islamic songs). Many songs I listened and memorized from groups of male to female nasheed group. I even handled a group of nasheed during my college years about 20 years ago. The rise of Islamic living was about to blossom at the moment. Hijabis had been started to appear here and there in campus.
Nasheed changed the way I spent my time. The guilty feeling of listening to music became smaller. I don't listen to music anymore now (gonna tell you later about it insha Allah) but nasheed was one good choice for me.
What I liked the most from nasheed is the rhyme. I am quite an auditory learner so I found rhyming is so much fun. It is more fun when comes to learning something. Kindergartens learn things through songs and rhymes as well.
What about learning Islam through rhymes? I have a great news! Book publisher, Prolance, has released a book called Purity & Prayer: Rhyming Picture Book of Sacred Rulings by Ameena Bint Abdir …
