Tips for Camping with Babies & Toddlers – Modern Mama
We took my on on his first camping trip when he was 7 months old. It’s less challenging than what others would have you believe. Here are some great tips to help you prepare your trip.
Camping with babies and toddlers can be the highlight of your summer, as long as you plan ahead and are ready for adventure. Nothing is better than the great outdoors, tons of fresh air and bonding with your family in nature. We have been camping with our son for the past 3 summers, since he was 6 months old, and in that time we’ve come to learn some do’s and don’ts as well as essentials to make things a lot easier. I should add that we’ve “camped” in a tent trailer and/or 1980’s trailer that I grew up spending my childhood summers in. Those who choose to tent with children are amazing & fearless in my opinion! Here are some of my tips for a stress free camping experience with your little one(s).
Extra bedding is crucial. After last summer when our son went through a “tummy bug” of sorts on one trip I have realized that a complete change of bedding (or two) will make everything ok in the end.
