Nutrition Packing List

Parents need to come prepared when traveling to adopt , whether you are traveling to another country or to another state.

This list will vary based on your child’s age, the length of your adoption trip, and the availability of foods to purchase locally. The easiest way to find out what you need is to network with other parents who have adopted, and preferably, adopted from your child’s country of origin.

Depending on your child’s age and developmental skills, he or she may not be ready for complementary foods. Do not progress your child’s complementary foods while on the adoption trip unless under the supervision of a health care provider.

Here’s a general idea of what to bring with you on your adoption journey:
