Yes, you read that right. Pouches are such an easy, on-the-go way to feed your little ones. I feel like pouches get a bad rep but they can be so handy! And of course, some are gross (broccoli and carrot, BLECH!) but some are yummy for when mom or dad get hungry on the go, too! Here's my top 5 pouches to pack for YOURSELF (in case the need should arise!). Or to pack "for the kids" and you can steal later.
My son turned 22 months old and a MAJOR sleep regression hit. I genuinely thought that this child was done with any sleep training at 6 months, with the occasional teething night where a dose of Motrin was enough to soothe him. To say sleep is important to this child is an understatement. So when he woke up at 3 am, screaming, crying for us to come get him, I was shocked.
I had a bunch of stale cereal and thought this activity would be really fun for Lincoln because he's been obsessed with birds and chipmunks and bunnies and squirrels lately. All of which are found in our yard! I poured all of the cereal into a bowl (which Lincoln gladly took a large sampling of). We then tied the string around each of our feeders. I decided to experiment to see which was better the puffs container or toilet paper roll.
I let Lincoln take a large scoop of the sunbutter and "paint" it all over the containers. We then rolled the covered containers in the cereal. It didn't fully stick on so we sprinkled the rest on top. Lincoln carried the small feeder and I carried the large and we hung them in a tree where we see A LOT of birds hang out.
Lincoln played music in the background and we had nursery rhymes playing in the background as well. She seemed to really enjoy the rattle-like instruments like the tambourine and maraca.
