Baby food preparation when travelling with baby..

I've been planning to write this entry about a month ago, glad that I found the pictures were already in the picture folder. Just to share some simple tips and ideas for those mommies who planning for travelling yet to maintain enough stock of baby home made food. This is my first time too. I never had chance to travel during Adam time except going back to my hometown, which I nearly bring all those stock of foods for a week, or I just go back empty handed and cook at my parents' house. Both options are ok for me. These experiences I had during my Awana Kijal trip which took about 3-4 hours driving while Langkawi trip by air which took almost 5-6 hours journey to reach our check in place. 

The longest trip that I had was 4 days and 3 nights trip. Normally Ryan took 3 times meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner. And breastfeeding in between. Owh btw, I did not bring any ebm stocks as I was direct feeding him for most of the trips we went. So I have save some space for ebm and milk bottle weeee ;) I tried to prepare food which suitable to be take for breakfast and dinner. So I can save up some space there too. With many activities around, it easy to feed with minimal variant of foods, aight!. Lunch as usual, I prepared frozen fish/chicken porridge, kept in the suitable jars. 

The instant baby oat and multi grain meal for breakfast or dinner..
Grain meal which consist of several types of rice, enough to make the baby full and happy..hehehe...

Frozen fruits to be take with oat or grain meals..
Since sometimes I fed him between meals, so for the trips, I've combined pumpkins to apple and apricot puree...*kenyanglah sket kan* You may also replace the pumpkins with sweet potatoes as well!

Transfer to the big containers..aka tupperware..
During trip to Awana Kijal, I don't really mind about the space since I was travelling by car..
As far as everything is there, I'm ok for that..

But during my Langkawi trip, I have to minmize the luggage..
So, I only brought few important things and minimized the packing as much as I can..

8 oz Avent containers for the grain meals, Thermos for the heat up porridge, Avent milk powder dispenser for the baby oat. Sipping cup and Allenhand thermal bag to put the heat up fruits puree during outing.

Avent milk powder dispenser for 3 portions of instant baby oat..

For Langkawi trip, I replaced the big container with ebm storage bag to keep the frozen fruit purees..
And the frozen porridge in the Avent via cup.

You might ask for how long the frozen purees and porridge can long last, rite?Yup, besides the proper packing, the frozen purees and porridge were placed in the cooler bag with small ice pack too. So, I don't  have problem during travelling to Terengganu. The cubes still maintain the good shapes and the porridge still froze well. So when I reached hotel, immediately transferred to the minibar, with some of the jars in the normal rack while those to be consume on the following days were placed in the freezer. This is so important, to ensure the re-heat process become shorter and more easier. 

For Langkawi trip, since we have packing everything so early to catch the flight, reached the airport straight away had dinner, we reached the homestay around 10pm. Everything still in good condition since the cooler bag still cool inside, only the fruit purees started to melt. Its ok, in fact its easier for me to re-heat the next day =) At first I was a little bit worried too, if the immigration not allow to bring the ice pack and all the baby foods stuff. Syukur, they don't even bother. You can read here to get info when flying with babies.

During most of the stay, except the stay at homestay (in Langkawi), I have kitchen to re-heat on the stove with boiling water *the good things about homestay actually*, so most of the time I re-heat the foods with normal steps, boiled up the water, thawed in the bowl for several times until the foods are warmed enough and transferred in the thermos  and thermal bag for outing. *ada cara tak bagus, I put the container in the boiling heater, hahahaha, sungguh kejam, tapi cepat!* 

Well, I think I have wrote most of the experiences I had, will keep it update if I find out any items that I miss. Btw, you are welcome to share your brilliant ideas that u might used during your travelling, InsyaAllah we can get benefit from that too. This is a good article about homemade baby food and travelling can be used as reference for mommies out there!Check it outtt!!! 

Last but not least, baby kenyang = happy..travelling pun tenang, betul tak?? =)

"Betul mommy!!"  

Has anyone tried this?

Look so yummilicious betul la specially the green tea + red beans frappy!

Sape dah try sila angkat tangan..

The last entry for Langkawi trip about the activities during our stay at Four Points by Sheraton. We had great time there, wish I could extend for another day.Which surely NO! InsyaAllah, next time ada rezeki boleh datang hotel ni lagik. Memang best. Selain aktiviti kat pantai, apa lagik aktiviti bila stay kat hotel, kalau tak pergi swimming kan? Kena pulak swimming pool dia memang walaweiii...maveles!

No worry, nampak macam takde pool for kids kan..
Kat sebelah adults pool, ada provide kids pool jugak. Exactly opposite the kids' club and gym..
*kelihatan mak bapak yg gigih mengajar anak2 swimming disitu yer!!*

Tak caya??

Sesi suai kenal dengan air dulu..

Agak2 dah bosan...

Kita uji tahap keapungan Ryan pulak...
Ooo...nampaknya susah nak terapung sb bontot Ryan berat..omomomo!!

* stretch kaki sb kolam cetek*

Seperti biasa, model tak berbayar kami..
Besar gila pool dia, surrender ..nak buat 2 lap pun boleh pengsan!

The next morning, we had a big breakfast at their cafe..
The stay come with 2 breakfast buffet for each room..

Lucky it was free for kids bawah umur yang makan bnyk..
Macam budak di atas..;)

Yang ni bawah umur tapi tak boleh makan...
"Iye..mommy saya makan bnyk sgt sgt!"

Ni uncle Adam yg perut mat salleh, pagi2 nak makan cereal lah katanya...

Let's see what they have for breakfast.. 

Yum yum breads, croissants, muffins and cakes..

Juices and yogurts..

Fresh cut fruits..
and chic slices and cheese..

Western and local foods..yums!

Porridge and condiments..

And hot drinks..

Spacious cafe with pool view, great choices of foods and friendly staffs!
Thumbs up..

Lepas makan, lepak2 pusing hotel..

Lepak kat lobby area...

Lepas tu balik bilik packing..
Our flight to LCCT around 1.30pm..
Just nice..check out terus ke airport..
3 min to airport, and returned rental car pun kat airport..easy peasy!

Such a great holiday...
We enjoyed it so much..
All the activities involved everyone, so everyone had so much fun!
Mission accomplished >.<

the brothers..

To make the boys stay put for at least 5min, is not an easy thing to do. There are always things come up to their minds. Kalau Adam duduk diam, adalah pulak si adik datang mengacau. End up riuh rendah je rumah. But wait, there is time when we can make the brothers sit calmly. How??Anyone here can guess?

Sian plak tengok budak bam bam ni..

"Hish apelah papa buat ni??"

Dua-dua dah tak boleh gerak..

Apelagik kalau bukan time papa diorang ni tengah vacuum lah..
Takut pun sebab papa duk usik sedut kaki diorang..notty papa!
