Infant Powdered Formula vs. Concentrated Formula

I have just learned that the powdered formula has a different taste from concentrated formula. And also, this is for the same brand and kind. Recently we have just finished feeding the last can of Heinz Nurture concentrated formula to Brandon. He had no problems taking it.

Now I have the powdered can of Heinz Nurture that I kept (which was also given for free by the company as I am on the Heinz Baby Club). When I gave the prepared powdered type formula to Brandon, he made a face and hurled after a few sips. I then tasted it myself and noticed it had a sour taste. Even though it is the same brand and same kind (but one is just liquid and other is powder), I am wondering why it would taste different. I prepared a bottle again the next day and still not the same as the concentrate formula. I was disappointed. So it was kind of wasted.

I have 2 more Heinz powdered infant formula that I will try to give away or trade for the concentrated kind. For now, I will continue to breastfeed as usual. He was only given formula whenever we go out or during dinner.

How to Make a Bath Visor

Washing your baby's or toddler's hair can be a struggle trying to keep the shampoo or water from getting into the eyes or running down the face, but I would recommend using a bath visor. I learned about it when I saw it at the store one day, but it costs like $10 for a piece of foam. It also looks cute, but I didn't buy it though.

To save a bit of money, I decide to make one myself. Also, because I remembered I still have a scrap piece of craft foam left that I used for scrapbooking. You can make your own bath visor as well. It's a very easy and fun project.

These are the patterns and the idea I followed:

What you'll need:
- craft foam
- scissors
- elastic band
- pen
- large bowl or something round for tracing

1) Trace half a circle on the craft foam. Also make another half circle on the inner side.
2) Cut out the shape and leave the ends a bit longer, where the elastic will attach.
3) Cut a small hole on each end and tie a knot on one end of the elastic.
4) Make adjustments if necessary by measuring it on your baby's head.

Hope this helps. Here's what the finished project looks like:

Weekly Trip to Toys-R-Us

Here are just some photos we took from our weekly trip to Toys-R-Us. Oh, the Whisper Ride Buggy car I mentioned in my previous post is on sale for $69.97 ($20 savings), but we didn't buy it as we didn't really need it.

Weekly Sale at Toys-R-Us

Another day at Toys-R-Us for Brandon. And it's another hot & sunny day in Vancouver. At the store, we saw the "Whisper Ride Buggy" car and it looked fun, so I let Brandon sit in it for a while. I strolled him around the store and he loved the ride. I didn't buy it though because it was kinda expensive (price was $89.99). It wasn't on sale either.

I took a photo. My little guy is growing up fast. He is 8-months old.

There's a sale at Toys-R-Us every week. I signed up for the email newsletters and I get the online flyers sent to my inbox. Pampers sensitive wipes were on sale: buy 2 get 1 free. I thought it was a good deal (regular price $7.99/3pk) and I saved like $7.99. I go through a lot of baby wipes.
