This easter we went away for a week to Devon and one of the challenges was how we were going to feed baby Sprout while we were away. Here are my top 10 tips for feeding a baby on holiday while you are away from home.
- Write a meal plan. That way you know what to plan to buy / make to take with you and will ensure you don't buy too much or too little.
- If you are breastfeeding you can pack light!
- If you are bottle feeding you can buy pre-made formula in bottles when you get to your destination which means you don't have to pack a tub of formula.
- Relax your routine. You are on holiday so you can be a bit more laid back with feeding times.
- Buy pre-made. There are plenty of great packaged baby foods now. Try Ella's Kitchen pouches. Don't feel guilty - it's only for a short time.
- It may be a great time to introduce your baby to new foods you don't normally eat at home. You could a little bit of baby led weaning too.
- Think about if you are going to sterilise feeding equipment and what you will use. Sterilising tablets are convenient and easy to pack.
- Pack a couple of bowls and spoons. These collapsible bowls are great to slim down your packing.
- Buy some disposable bibs like these. If you have a messy eater you will know how much mess they get over themselves! That way you don't have to store dirty bibs for the whole time you are away.
- A portable baby highchair is a great idea and means that your little one will have somewhere secure to sit whilst you are feeding them.
