MacGyvering a Snack: Ziplocked Yogurt and Tongue Napkin
Clever me. I took a tupperware of salmon to the park for GP one day when we had a little picnic. We hadn't done much solid-food feeding outside of the house since he started solids at 6 months, so it didn't occur to me that it wouldn't be easy. Well, feeding GP when he's not in a high chair is like wrestling with a cat to get into a bathtub. Let's just say we all came home smelling like a fish market in Chinatown in August.
I didn't want to make the salmon mistake again when Rob and I went for a long walk and thought that GP might need to eat. So, I stuffed greek yogurt and mashed avocado into a ziploc bag. When GP was hungry, I snipped off the corner and squeezed the yogurt into GP's mouth. It's probably easier to buy those packaged bags that you suck on, but so far I haven't felt the need to buy packaged foods for GP. The DIY gogurt worked out pretty well, and I'd do it again.
The only thing is, I didn't have any napkins or burp cloths on me, so I DIY'd that, too. Tongue napkin!
