Camping with your Baby? - Choosing a location

So getting outdoors used to be one your favorite pass times. But now shouldering your backpack has been replaced by shouldering your baby carrier. Never fear! Getting back outdoors and introducing your baby to it is not as complicated as you might think. You might not be the minimalist packer that you once were, but just add a few things to your packing list and you’ll be back outside.

Choosing Locations

Start off choosing a familiar campsite not too far from home. Trying a practice trip in your back yard lets your baby get used to sleeping in a tent while allowing you to make sure your trip list is complete. As well, aim for a trip in the spring or fall when temperatures are cooler. It is easier to add clothing layers then to try to cool down your baby.
