5 Tips for Camping with an Infant!
1. Bring Netting – no this isn’t my wedding veil, it’s a large screen for keeping the bugs away. You could make do with yards of tulle from any fabric store, but baby stores sell heavy duty shaped netting with elastic around the edges that you can stretch over just about anything, and works much better!
5. Keep Dry – As a dear friend’s daughter once informed us: “You sweat, you die!” Well, that probably won’t happen on a family camping trip, but it’s generally good survival advice. If baby is damp he won’t be comfortable and could catch cold. Don’t take damp clothing off inside the tent as the moisture will have nowhere to go, and will condense at night most likely under your sleeping bag (and under whatever baby is asleep on top of).
Anyone else out there been camping with a baby? What other advice/tips would you add? Please comment below. Thanks!
