How Do We Do Solids When We Travel?Emily Malone
As our adventures in solid food continue, I’m starting to look ahead toward a few trips we have planned for this summer. Now that Cullen is eating at the table with the rest of the family, I’m trying hard to stay consistent and feed him his cereals and veggies every night.
We have a few trips coming up this summer for more than just a day or two, and I don’t want to abandon solid food just because we’re traveling. I know that right now it’s just experiential, but eventually this is going to be his primary source of nutrition!
In order to keep up with his eating, I’m trying to figure out how exactly we’re going to do that when we’re traveling. Right now he’s still working in the whole sitting up while unattended thing, so I can’t just plop him in a chair or on a table (with assistance, of course). And since we live in Seattle, which is pretty much driving distance to…nothing…all our traveling will be done via airplane.
Car trips are easy since we can throw the Bumbo or something in the car, but what do we do when we’re traveling by air? Can anyone recommend any good, foldable travel high chairs? It needs to be sturdy enough for my very active baby, but also small enough to fit in a suitcase. Any and all suggestions are welcomed!
