We always stop just for breaks where we’d sit together and have a snack. It is just a snack at the end of the day but try to enjoy it together rather than just having in the car. It might be that we pull over somewhere and still eat in the car but it’s much safer.
I was just thinking about snacking in the car as well because so often we reach for snacks as a distraction tool and they work really well. However, it can be a choking hazard; you can’t get to them and can be really dangerous.
If you’re weaning you have to think, how comfortable would you be leaving your baby alone with food? Would you walk away and go into another room and feel confident that they will be okay? I don’t think you would. You want to be present when they’re eating.
Certainly, when we’re talking about babies up to 18 months, there’s not a chance you would want to leave them with a snack on their own is there?
