Travel?

Ok I'm going on a long road trip within the next couple of weeks and I would like to know how best to feed my bottle fed baby 3 months old, because where I am going I will have no running water or electrcity. I'm thinking the ready-made formula is the way to, but I have to but the nipples sperate and it's getting expensive, does anyone have any other ideas?

  • So what would you do if you were camping? You can't bring jugs of water or any thing like that? At least to wash with? I don't know the the situation you will be in but there's got to be a way to get, have or be near water.

  • The drop in-s you would still need heated water of course, but just throw away the liner after you use, and no messy cleanup, other then the nipple im sure.

    heres a website...just get info or ask your doc!! http://www.playtexbaby.com/Products/Bottles/DropIns.aspx
