Hey Meeth. So glad to see ur first question on BabyChakra. Marking Revauthi Rajamani who can advise on some food items you can carry along with you. Have you weaned off ur child yet or about to start ?

Neha Agarwal

Also marking Sumira Bhatia, nancy singh (@the_foodswingss) who can give some tips

Neha Agarwal

Harneet (clanpedia) sure u will have loads of tips to give. Yogini Kandre any tips ?

Neha Agarwal

Has ur baby started crawling yet ? If not, you don’t need a soft mat yet but definitely would need soon. So invest in one. Keep a couple of change of clothes. U can plan to keep a small electric stove to warm up the food. Would you also breastfeed along with weaning too?

Meeth Srivastava

Not weaned yet... But will do soon...

Hi Meeth
Foods the most important thing...
Since you are just gonna wean I suggest you to carry soups in warmer. Any clear soups.
Easy to carry weaning food is fruits n veggies puree.I suggest you buy a mee mee squeeze and eat spoon. All you have to do is fill those pouches with the purees, wen it's time to feed, jus open, squeeze, it comes through the spoon n that's it. Ready to feed.
It's easy to use, carry n mess free very comfortable at work place.
So if you are planning to carry top up feeds do so, introduce one food at a time, follow the three day rule. Don't force feed, feed on demand.
As far as ur diaper bag requirements
Carry plastic covers in the diaper bag to help you store the used towels, bibs etc.
Change over clothes, bibs, diapers, wrap around mats, etc.
Do you need more information, please write here...

Agree with Revauthi Rajamani, and carry fruits, like banana and chikoo, carry baby's one to two toys, if your baby started crawling, then invest in good floor mat, so you can regularly wipe it with dettol

Keep fruits n vegetables with rice k
