Milk substitute

Formulas is quite expensive these days specially when you had a baby who loves to drink milk. I mean my baby needs to be fed every two hours or she'll wake up and cry like crazy.  She consumed four regular size of canned formulas and it's not that cheap, It's really pain in our pocket, but what could we do, but... have faith that God will provide for her needs and ours.

So since my baby is really a milk addict in a way (lol!) I need to look for a substitute, and so.. some older friends who has kids already told me about grinding rice grain. All you need to do it boil five cups of water with  two table spoon of fine grind rice. Make sure you dissolve the powdered  rice with water before pouring in the boiling water. Let it boil for three minutes and cool aside.  Make sure that the watery porridge is cold before putting it on the baby's milk bottle. With two hundred ounces of this... mix it with two scoop of baby's formula.

With this strategy of mine to lessen milk expenses means that hubby needs to go to the market at least once in two weeks to buy some fine ground rice grain. How I wish I can do this myself so that I really know that the food I'm feeding my baby is really clean, I really wish I have a sieving machine, so that I can get the finest rice powder ever.

Every Blessing that YOU poured out...turns back to Praise...!
