    Dear ILs,
    I need to travel with my 7 months old daughter via Air to US. It will be approx 26-28hrs travel with Transit. Please advise some recipes/food that can be given for her while traveling. Also, we may need to stay in hotel for initial 6-7 days. What can be given to her at that time. Myself and my DH are clueless and are very much worried abt this travel. Also guide me about precautionaries to be taken. Please help.

    Dear Moderartors,
    Please guide if this kindof post is already there.


    Thanks in advance.

    did you check if the hotel you stay here has a kitchen?? if not, why dont you request for one with that..if they say a suite, it must have a kitchen..atleast one with a microwave..so that you can buy mineral water and boil it in the microwave..you can get baby cereal and and all ready to feed veggies n fruit purees in all grocery shops here. look at the baby section..

    First of all relax and enjoy your trip. Your baby will feed off of your anxiety and she will also stress out if her parents doing the same.

    Now for food: Take some biscuits and snacks that you have already been giving her. remember that fruit and vegetables are not allowed on international flights so leave those at home. Bring dry baby cereal and ask the Air Hostess (AH) to heat up some water for you so that you can feed your baby. Also bring dry milk powder...you can ask the AH to bring warm water for that also.
    Make sure you tell your travel agent that you are traveling with a baby so that they can reserve a basinet for the baby.
    Also bring extra diapers and clothes in case she gets a bit dirty. Bring an extra outfit for you and DH also in your carryon. Trust me, if she get you dirty, you will welcome a fresh pair of pants or shirt. Bring along some toys for her to play with - but nothing that makes too much sound.
    Have a safe trip and enjoy
