I still can't picture myself being away from my little one especially for more than 1 day! There is nothing more I worry of than my little one being without his mother! Will he be okay? Will he eat? Will he sleep well? Will he cries for no reason? All these questions have been on my head since the 1st day I got the news that I have to be away for few days.
Not I don't trust my husband to take care of Hariz on his own but I think it would be best for both Hariz and Wan if Hariz be with my parents at my hometown in Alor Setar.
Even though my mom will prepare all the food for Hariz when I'm gone, I just can't help myself from preparing his food and make sure that the supplies suffice. (so I will feel better when I'm away later knowing that I have made all the food) :)
Anyways, today I had a bit of a time to prepare 3 types of baby food for Hariz :
(one) : brown rice + broccoli + carrots
(two) : brown rice + broccoli + salmon
(three) : potato + carrots
This is pretty much what I need to prepare the food.
1.brown rice - to be cooked on stove until it turned to porridge
2. carrots cut into cubes
3. potatoes cut into cubes
4. broccoli - removed the stems because it could cause gas. (that explains the farting :P)
5. Item 2-4 to be steamed for about 45 minutes to cook.
Put them together according to your liking (I basically followed my instinct (ikut suka)in this matter. janji sedap :P) Owh i don't use salt or sugar in making this food ya. Try using friend anchovies (ikan bilis goreng) instead.
I usually made them in large amount because to prepare baby's food, kinda takes time. So I made it in one shot and store them in baby cubes (2oz each). It's really convenient. You can store the food up to 2-3 months in the freezer. But normally, Hariz will finished them in 1 months time :)
I'll be away for 4 days but I think the food could last for more than 1 months! Don't you think? :P Owh remember to labelled them accordingly so you won't missed the expiry date.
A little guide for travelling with baby food my way :)
First of all, make sure the amount of food needed and days of travelling. As for Hariz, he had 3 meals in a day, breakfast, lunch and of course, dinner. Say if we were to travel for 3 days, I will pack 9 baby cubes. Put the cubes in a sealed plastic bag so in case the food spilled, it won't spoil your luggage. So far we have travelled by plane and car. The methods are pretty much the same whether you are travelling either plane or car. But if the travelling time is longer than 6 hours, you might consider putting the food with ice packs to keep them cool longer. and make sure the place you're headed has a fridge. If not, you may need to bring a cooler with you.
When it is time to feed your baby, just take 1 cube and dip it in a hot water for a while and it's ready to be consumed! Wasn't that easy?
If you have any other recipe for baby, please share with me!Sharing is caring right? :) Thanks love!
