One of the biggest tips I received when I become a mom was to never force my daughter to eat. It was fine in my books until Bella refused every meal we would give her! Literally, every meal but we were still ok since we were breastfeeding. When we made the switch to milk we encounter a huge problem. She only wanted warm milk. When we were home there was no issue but when we were out and about with a toddler who only wanted milk and warm milk at that there was our issue.
She would cry until she had a warm bottle and it was a rough transition. A transition we could not find a solution and it got even harder when we made our first trip out of the country.
How were we going to have warm milk readily available for her in Guatemala? We had planned to visit a few places and this was very new to me, as Cuban. After talking it out to our family we decided to go with powder milk and as Hispanics, there is no other than NESTLÉ® NIDO®.
We had a great time in Guatemala and it was amazing getting to shop at their national stores and be able to buy NIDO®.
In the US we continued usingNIDO® and use it till today! I carry the small canister in my bags at all time and refill it as soon as I get home. Even though Bella is now a 3-year-old, she still chooses milk over any other meal! Even over chicken nuggets or ice cream! So as a mom with a toddler what are my 3 trips so have a tantrum-free outing?
- Still calm as a parent. This is key. Children imitate everything they see so if we lose our patience they will too.
- Always have a stroller or a wagon to pull them in. We never leave home with our Chicco stroller. If your child is older a wagon will work great. It keeps them in place and gives us as parents enough control to help them.
- Have some NIDO® in hand. This is something else that we never leave home without and when I have sadly forgotten to refill it you can always find me at a local store buying another can of it. NIDO 1+ also contains vitamins and minerals which help support healthy growth and development and has a delicious honey taste kids love
This 3 tips may be the easiest and most overthought tips ever but they work amazingly for us and have helped us keep tantrums at bay when on a special outitng! As a family, we try to enjoy the outdoors and to spend time together as a family as most as possible and having a few tips to keep the tantrums away make our time together even more special. I also love that I can leave a can at both grandmas houses and I know Bella will always have her milk close by!
Have you tried NIDO®?
If not I invite you to visit your local Walmart and buy a can! It’s a brand I trust and love!
