taking your baby camping

Of course packing to go anywhere with a baby makes things more complicated, and camping is no exception. Here's what you cannot forget when taking off into the woods with your baby...

  • Safe baby sandals for around the campsite - if your tot is walking well look into some sturdier shoes for treks into the forest or on a rocky shoreline.
  • Hat with brim to block the sun and sunglasses.
  • Swim pants for water play if there's a lake.
  • Sunscreen and bug spray.
  • If you’re going to be out on the lake, water safety gear like life jackets are a must have.
  • A tent with screens and a canopy shade or you'll have one hot and cranky tot.
  • If you'll be hiking, make sure you have a decent baby carrier / baby backpack.
  • A blanket or two to lay on and to cover some ground (so your baby won't be tempted to eat those rocks).
  • You should have a first aid kit in your car.
  • Your charged cell phone for emergencies.
It's also smart to choose a campsite semi-near civilization, at least with a very small baby. Make sure you know the best route to a medical center as well. Mountain Baby is a great place to shop for adventure baby gear - all sorts of handy camping items for your baby are available.
