Feeding baby during travel

Baby and breastfeeding - If you are breastfeeding, do not change your use. Continue to feed baby normally. Breastfeeding is the most convenient method of travel and also the most beneficial because breast milk contains antibodies that help protect the baby against infections. Watch what you eat, especially in foreign countries, and remember to drink plenty of water in hot countries. Be vigilant about the water you drink. In case of doubt the only drink bottled water.

Baby is bottle-fed - You can contact the manufacturer of your child milk to see if your brand is available in the country you are visiting. Mineral water you use must be cleared before you. Check that the water used has a low content of minerals. Be careful to follow the preparation instructions indicated on the box of milk: the scoops can match 20ml, 25ml, 30ml or 60ml depending on the country.

Baby has a diversified diet - Before 4 months, Baby is only a milk diet. Indeed, starting four months before the diversification has no benefit and may even have disadvantages. Diversification is not too early to the infant's needs and is tailored to his or physiology, nor his ability to swallow and digest new foods. It increases the risk of food allergies and nutritional imbalances and digestive disorders.
   

Some reminders to adapt amimentation of your baby capabilities: Between 6 and 8 months, the baby's digestive system is well developed and you can now prepare him his meals with different textures and start introducing foods mixed. 9 to 12 months, baby can swallow small pieces of mixed food. You can begin to crush food with a fork ... From 12 months baby now has small teeth (average 8 incisors and 4 molars), which will allow him to chew firmer foods into small pieces.

Jars of baby food are the easiest way to feed your baby during the trip. Even if you should find baby food in your place of residence, it may be advisable to have as few elbow repas. It will be tempting to feed directly from the jar. There is nothing wrong with that. However, do not keep leftovers for another meal with the spoon could introduce saliva in food and generate a proliferation of germs. Abroad, do not forget to sterilize bottles and be attentive to cleanliness when preparing food for your baby. All fruits and vegetables should be washed thoroughly with clean water (bottled or boiled) before peeling.

 
During trip, think porbabywearing, an African ritual

In Africa, wearing a newborn on her back is a technique of mothering full. This traditional method has many advantages.


Africa Porting

Since its birth, the baby African remains in permanent contact with his mother who carries on his back in a loincloth. The babywearing puts on an act, emotional role: as soon as the baby is crying her mother cradles, she is listening to his solicitations. On the other hand, the portage has a community function very important in African society: the baby is in contact with all family members and participates in various daily activities.

The babywearing up the baby in a perfect position: knees are up to the buttocks, the hips are open. Thus, the baby develops harmoniously and improved digestion: burping are facilitated, reflux and colic are reduced.
