Today’s fashion features is H&M, one of my favourite places to stock up on cheap pants and other fun pieces.
Shirt & Tie: H&M
But seriously, how cute is this outfit? This was no special occasion, just a regular Monday at the day home. It was too cute not to put on him immediately.
Yes, I bribed him with a snack to take a picture. It sort of worked.
I love H&M pants for Liam as they are always a great length and have an adjustable elastic waist so they last Liam forever. I’m pretty sure I just retired a pair of 9m pants a couple months ago and he still regularly wears some 12m pants even though his regular size is 2T. They are always around $10 which is easy on the budget too.
I love that H&M has such fun styles, like the little ties and pants with suspenders which is another one of my favourite looks for Liam. I will definitely be showcasing more H&M outfits in the future.
Now for some toddler talk. It was recently recommended to cut dairy from Liam’s diet, thinking a slight dairy intolerance is what’s been making him sick so frequently. I really hope this is the case because I would love my boy to go more than a few weeks without a runny nose and cold, or worse.
It shouldn’t be too hard to cut out dairy, aside from the hidden things that you forget about (baking, etc). Liam’s already chugged half a carton of coconut milk, so no worries there. It is a little sad he won’t be able to have ice cream and grilled cheese sandwiches this summer.
I need to find some new things to cook that Liam will enjoy. He seems to not want to eat anything I make, unless it’s fruit or yogurt. Dinner is usually thrown on the floor unless he comes to steal some of mine. He eats really good for his dad and the day home, which is annoying, but I know he’s still getting enough to eat. It seems he likes lots of flavours all mixed together, where I generally cook the standard meat, veggies, rice/potato. I struggle knowing what to cook that will please my toddler while keeping my diet in check since I need to be more diligent about what I’m eating and how much. It’s a tough balance, especially when you have limited time for food prep and cooking.
Any tips on clean, dairy free, toddler approved meals?
Does your or your child have any intolerances or allergies you are working around?
