First, we are going to Chicago in a few weeks. We are close to Detroit and it was a 4ish hour drive last time we went. Any tips for traveling with a 6 month old? Things to do there that are family friendly/baby friendly? Last time DH and I did museums and "shopping." Logistics? (stroller/packnplay/toys) What about baby formula and food? We use purified water and I make my own baby food.
Second, is about the baby food. DD has had rice, oatmeal, sweet potato, banana, peas, and pears. She has liked every single thing. What other foods do you recommend? I was going to buy squash or green beans and peaches. DH does not want to feed her avocado.
Third, I have been taking this awful bcp. I get breakthrough bleeding every month and I hate it. I am switching back to what I used to be on a few years ago. My OB said to finish the pack before starting the new one. Would it be okay to switch after the 3 weeks of pills and skip the part where you get the period? I know that it is okay to do when you are on one pill but would it be okay switching between two different pills?
ETA: Forgot something - What sunscreen do you recommend that doesn't stain clothes. We have been using spray but it turns things yellow. We are going to use Aveeno Baby for DD when she is old enough.
Sorry for the million questions. DD is about 5 1/2 months. She is huge, she will be out of her 9 month clothes in no time. She rolls both ways and uses that to get around the room. Everything gets in her mouth, we think she might be getting a tooth on the lower right side, it feels different than the rest of her gums. She is a belly sleeper most of the time now, which causes her to drool tons and DH said her crib was soaked when he got up with her this morning. (She woke up at 5:50 yesterday for me but 7:15 today for him).
