Feeding Bub While Out And About

Feeding Bub While Out And About

This post was written in collaboration with Izimini.

Summertime is filled with sunshine, sand and picnic rugs. Whilst we adore the fun in the sun, feeding our kids on the go (especially when they need help sitting up) can be challenging, and often ends up with a very *indoor* Summer. 

As new parents, there’s enough of a battle to get out the door- we don’t need feeding to be the barrier when it comes to making that outdoor plan. Today we’re exploring our favourite ways to bring bub outdoors, and ways to feed them on the go which actually work.

The Izimini chair is a favourite- and other than being absolutely adorable, let’s take a look at why:

 

Setting your bub up in their own chair, with a backrest, buckles and armrests means they have their own “low chair”, (like a high chair, but on the ground). This keeps their back and arms supported, and feeling safely snug in their own chair. This feeling of security fosters a much easier mealtime, as bub is likely to engage with food when they feel safe and snug without the risk of tipping over. Imagine being a baby, propped up on a picnic mat, being expected to eat food while you’re falling over every 30 seconds. Doesn’t sound like a setup for success…

Being outdoors in real life is part of how we, as adults, eat our meals. Getting a baby (no matter their age) into the great outdoors is such a wonderful thing, and helps them to experience the real world around them. Eating amongst trees, birds (the non-swooping ones) and sunshine is a real treat for the senses. Taking bub on the go with you to Summer picnics and BBQs doesn’t have to be stressful, if you know that the place they’ll be sitting to eat/play is clean and stable… and CUTE AS PIE

We all know fresh air can be the silver lining to a really hard day, and setups like Izinmini support the introduction of solids, while keeping Mama's mental health in mind. 

Having a chair with their own tray table means that they can see, squish and interact with their food. When food constantly comes at you from a spoon (or an aeroplane), it’s a bit unnerving. For babies, if they can interact with their food, bringing small pieces to their own mouth, it’s a much more relaxing experience, and you might find that they eat better when they're in control. 

Plus the tray table here doubles as a playtable and sensory table for those sand/grass locations where the beach toys can come to them!

So, you know where you’ll find us this Summer- outside, with an esky full of Le Puree food and a cute Izimini chair to boot. Carpe Diem, Mama!
