My bad

I weaned from the pump almost 2 months ago already and Jack-Jack had been drinking Nido when I'm in the office. He also already consumed the frozen breastmilk I've stocked. When I first stopped pumping, I instructed his nanny to use up the breastmilk I've stocked in the freezer and supplement with half a cup of Nido. However, I forgot to tell her that once all the frozen milk were gone, Jack-Jack be given full glasses already.

And so it only dawned on me my mistake when Jack-Jack came back from his pedia that he was underweight. It was recommended that he take Pediasure so that his weight would catch up with his height. However, since we just bought a new box of Nido, I told his nanny to just give him at least 2 glasses of milk and let him eat frequently and as much as he wants.

It's really hard to be a parent, much more a mother. Especially since I'm already expecting another little one to take care of, my mind seems to wander more often to the future than in the present. At least, there's no lasting harm done, I think. Jack-Jack's a voracious eater, anyway, especially when he likes the food, so there's no doubt in my mind that he'd be gaining weight soon enough. Besides which, he's also a very active boy, so I'm not too worried. But I am guilty. But that's besides the point.
