The midwives at Birth&Beyond don't attend home VBACs at all, as far as I know, let alone VBA2Cs. :(

I cut mine into like 1.5-2" chunks and froze them, then used a few each day in a fruit smoothie.  Usually orange juice, berries, and banana.  Honestly, it doesn't taste "meaty" at all in that form. ...

At that age, the only carrier I'd recommend for a (high) back carry would be a woven wrap.  Or maybe a mei tai, but you would have to find one that your DD would fit in with her legs out of the...
