10 Tips for Feeding a Baby on Holiday

Baby feeding

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.

  1. 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.
  2. If you are breastfeeding you can pack light!
  3. 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.
  4. Relax your routine. You are on holiday so you can be a bit more laid back with feeding times.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Think about if you are going to sterilise feeding equipment and what you will use. Sterilising tablets are convenient and easy to pack.
  8. Pack a couple of bowls and spoons. These collapsable bowls are great to slim down your packing.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.

    I wish I had read this last year, we went away at Easter and my little boy had only been having solids for a few weeks and we didn’t know what to do! Great tips, Ella’s Kitchen pouches are great, I didn’t know about them at the time, and wasn’t keen on the idea of using pre-made food! xx

    Great tips! We’ve gone down the BLW route and I tend to let my little ones share my meals when on holiday – great way of letting them discover new foods. Even better if you are eating outside and don’t have to worry so much about the mess on the floor!
