Travling with Baby Hack: Dealing with a missing bottle cap

Yesterday, as we packed up to make our cross country trip back home, we realized that we were missing the plastic dome-style cap to one of our baby bottles.

None of the obvious options seemed like good ones: the day of traveling was long enough that we needed all the bottles we brought; and while skipping the cap wouldn't leave the bottle gushing milk, it would definitely make for a mess.

And then Shira had a brilliant idea: fill the bottle with milk, cover the top of the bottle with Saran wrap, then screw the nipple assembly over the whole plastic wrap.

The result: the plastic wrap keeps the milk from leaking, the nipple assembly protects the plastic wrap from getting punctured.

It worked like a charm.

Here's what I mean in photos:
