I just brought my daughter overseas last month when she was 12 mths. Bought the pigeon and wakodo instant porridge to mix with plain porridge. What I simply did was bring along my tiger food jar, travel kettle, and short grain white rice. First thing in the morning, boil water, wash rice, put in the tiger food jar and close it for 2-3 hours. And I get hot, soft porridge. When she needs to eat, I just scoop out the porridge to mix the pigeon/wakodo instant porridge for taste. I also added in some Heinz corn and pumpkin baby food to make it sweeter for her.
