We have been giving my son barley w/o sugar once a week till we brought him to TCM say dun give so often the same thing. So i am thinking beside barley what else can we give our little one?
I give my son ling yang, the moment the cup goes to his mouth, he push away...SOOOO SMELLY ha ahaa So now only drink barley w/o sugar.i give Ling Yang one day prior to injection when he was below 2 yo
and give barley once a week during tat time
now i will give him Mi Zao Tang (Mud3 Zou2 Tong1 in cantonese)
or those cooling soups like bitter gourd soup or winter melon soup when we make on weekends or during weekdays when my mum brews.
sometimes will give him Luo Han Guo unsweetened.
Cant his nose very sensitive..wat u add in the milk he can smell, once we add the fever medicine inside he smell it dun even want to drink and make sure we pour away and make new one then he start to drinkU can try mixed in his milk. I do that coz my boy dun like it oso.
If you are getting the white chrysanthemum (白菊), make sure you dun end up paying cheap price for it ... else it could well be a bleached version, which is definitely not good for the kiddos.yakii said:can he drink chysanthemum? my mum say scare got pollen
Wah didnt know daddy know how to cook liang teh too ha ahaa anyway thanks will try itIf you are getting the white chrysanthemum (白菊), make sure you dun end up paying cheap price for it ... else it could well be a bleached version, which is definitely not good for the kiddos.
You are lucky too ... that your kiddo doesn't like drinking ling yang (羚羊), becoz ling yang is a very potent drink that should be taken to bring down body temperatures, if your kiddo is running a fever. Not good to drink regularly when there is no fever.
Other than what has been mentioned above, you can also make pear tea (雪梨) & watercress tea (西洋菜), using a handful of almonds (南杏、北杏) & honeyed dates (蜜枣).
Switch around with the variety ... you'd end up serving the same type of 凉茶 once a month, but he gets to drink 凉茶 every single week.

To me, gender should no longer pose restrictions of any kind ... just like women nowadays can become prime ministers & CEOs, daddies could always try to do what mummies have been managing on their own for so so long.
Of course, we still lose out when you start mentioning delivery & breastfeeding of your little ones.
Hahahaha ... but your man at home may well know something else which you & I have no clue of: for example, earning the big bucks.yakii said:oops sorry dun mean that....just kind of surprise that daddy know so much.
