I know many of you are just shaking your head thinking that I am crazy for not just giving her jarred food while traveling and you are probably right. I knew from the start I wanted to make AM’s baby food as the smell of jarred stuff makes me gag. Making it at home has also saved us lots of money and me being the cheapskate I am, I was all for that. Since we had our little travel system all set up and since it worked well, we just rolled with it. I know if we were flying somewhere this would not have been do-able but for our driving trip, it worked.
In hindsight, if we were going on another trip like this and you asked me if I would take our food or just use jarred stuff, I would absolutely take ours and do nothing different than I did this last time. All in all, I was pleased with how we were able to keep up with our normal food and only substitute in back up a few times. I may be a bit more diligent about keeping it frozen towards the end, but it was really easy and no more challenging than packing and storing regular baby food.
