My wife and I took a roadtrip and thought that we were totally prepared. We brought bottles of pumped milk (stored in a cooler). We also brought a thermos of hot/warm water so that we can warm up the milk.
We figured that when our baby got hungry, we can give her a bottle. I did the driving, while my wife tended to the baby in the back.
About 30 minutes into the trip we heard the cry of hunger. We gave her a couple of ounces of milk after we warmed it up. All seem to be fine, until she got fussy and finally she had a big spit up.
We think that basically we couldn't burp her in the car so that's why she got fussy and eventually spit up.
Is there a better way to handle this in the future? I guess the proper thing to do would be to pull over at a rest stop, feed & burp the baby and then resume our trip.
Is feeding a baby in a moving vehicle bad practice?
