Go camping with a baby: tips
If we want to go camping with the baby the key is to program everything carefully. In fact, one of the first things you should do is prepare and pack all the typical things you need for the baby, but carrying double so that nothing catches us by surprise.
You can not stop putting in the suitcase, or backpack, extra diapers, wipes, food, and changes of clothes. Your baby's life at the campsite will be very similar to his life at home: playing, sleeping and eating. So all she has to do is find a way to make all these things happen while she's outdoors.
As soon as you arrive at your campsite, you will want to unload and pitch the tent and unpack everything. And then you'll quickly realize that there's nowhere to leave your baby because you are in a forest and the ground is covered with rocks, but your baby needs a safe place to relax.
Placing your baby in a baby carrier is an excellent option, or you can also put it in the cart or in the stroller and put it wherever you want. Another great option is spread out a tarp on which to leave their favorite toys and let him play while always being accompanied and watched.
If your baby is still on a full liquid diet, then what to bring will be simple. In the event that you are breastfeeding, there will be no problem. if you take formula milk you should bring enough as well water, to prepare the baby bottles.
On the other hand, cleaning baby bottles gets a bit tricky in the woods. Check in advance if your campsite has toilets with running water; many restrooms at campgrounds have a special outside sink designated for dishwashing only. Can you bring your own soap and sponge to wash the bottles and then even boil them in the camping kitchen to sterilize them. Another option is to use disposable bottles when camping.
If the child is already sitting up and eating solids, it may be a good idea carry a high chair to make eating comfortable. We can always feed the baby on our lap, but it will be better if he has his own chair.
