We have a wedding to go to the first weekend of August and I've been nervous about how Pierce will do (he'll be coming with us) so I've started getting ready for our trip now. Last week I decided what we'd do for his food.
I'm planning on taking a small cooler with us so that we can bring his homemade food. I don't know what he'll be eating then because it's more than a month away, but last week I bought some glass containers to put his frozen food into. I'm planning on putting his separate individual meals in the different glass containers so that they can be heated in the same container they were transported in. It makes me nervous to heat foods in plastic containers because chemicals from the plastic can leech into the food, so I always heat Pierce's food in glass or ceramic bowls.
I'm hoping that the hotel we're staying at, as well as the venue where the wedding is being held, will be accommodating with heating his food for us. I'm sure they will be, but someone I spoke to told me that when she went on vacation with her kids she was told that it was restaurant policy not to heat foods that were not prepared at the restaurant. They did bring her some boiling water to heat the food in although it didn't work very well. Hopefully we won't run into any of those problems.
I didn't realize how traveling with a baby could be so stressful, there are so many different things to think about. This will be a series of posts as I get everything in order for our trip.
