Can you take a 7 month old camping?
I was going to rent a Yurt. It’s like a tent/cabin and has heat and hydro. But my question is, is it worth taking a 7 month old camping? Any other parents do it, or did you wait??
I just took my 9.5 month old camping and she hated it. There were bugs everywhere. It was hot. She didn’t nap the whole day. She completely hated it but maybe your baby will be different. =)
Any advice on taking a 7 month old camping?
Hi, we’re due to go to the french alps region camping this July for 2 weeks. Our baby will be just over 7 months old then and will be the first time we’ve taken him camping. My partner is really keen to ge one of the really big tents with a few bedrooms and the inside with the carpet and awning etc.. and all the extras like kitchen style camping units and we’d be on a pitch with a hook up. So it would be pretty spacious camping. I think we would maybe be better getting a static caravan or chalet this year and waiting to do the tent thing next summer when he’s well over a year and a half. I’m worried it may be hard to keep baby cool in a tent if the weather is quite hot.
Does anyone have any advice or has anyone had experience of taking a young baby camping like this?
7 months is actually a great time to take a little one camping… My son did his first camping trip at 5 months and it was perfect, we set up a pack and play outside under the trees near us and he loved looking at the redwoods moving in the breeze and watching the birds, squirrels and other animals. At that age, it’s not like they’re climbing out of the crib, so a pack and play is a great sleeping solution too, if your baby isn’t a good sleeper you may want to set up the pack and play or whatever sleeping arrangement you plan in advance. While tent camping, we packed along our jog stroller and used the infant cocoon for a bed for our daughter when she was 4 months.

Don’t forget sunblock and wide brimmed hats – start putting them on baby early because then they’ll be more apt to keep them on. Dressing in layers is always key. Our little ones went everywhere in a baby backpack with a canopy to shade them, similar to http://www.kelty.com/p-281-fc-30.aspx?category=kids and my DH and I would take turns carrying the little one and carrying a backpack with supplies/our stuff on day hikes. Go on a couple hikes around home so the baby is accustomed to the carrier. If you’re breastfeeding, food shouldn’t be a problem and even if you’re not, a kitchen will make it easier to prepare formula.
Actually, next summer will be the trying one… Your little one will be toddling everywhere and not have the vocabulary/discipline to know boundaries.
Camping with a 7 month old? Tips and Advice Please…?
Has anyone ever had experience camping with a baby under 1, does anyone have any advice or tips about what to bring or things that really helped them make this a fun experience for the child and the parents. It will be 3 nights. My child is only 5 months now, so i dont even know what a 7 month old is going to be like. Any tips or advice will be appreciated.
Weather- it should be around 75 for a high and 60 for a low.
Are you tent camping or camper camping.
Either way I would suggest a playpen to sleep/play in around the campsite.
A carrier if you want to go hiking. I have seen people with strollers on trails and I laugh at them (hard).
A few of his/her favorite toys.
Lots of extra clothes and diapering tools. The minute you run out of clean clothes is when you will get a blow-out.
A small first-aid kit with Tylenol/Motrin plus the usual things you need.
Patience, camping with children any age can be a challenge but it can also be a lot of fun. Good luck!
Camping with 7 month old?
I live in Georgia and next month me and my boyfriend & Our precious son decided we would go camping for 3 days. I was just wondering what tips mommies had and when was the first time you took your little one camping? Thanks everyone!
Okay I don’t think my son is to young to go camping for a few days so I don’t even want to hear that crap I am his parent and I think he would be fine!
All I wanted was suggestions and Tips not people to tell me if I can take him.
It CAN be done. When I was little we went camping when my brother was just 2-4 months old… And he was a preemie! I don’t know how hard it will be with a 7 month old… A imagine with him being mobile it might proove a tad difficult but just bring a pack and play, and hats and bug spray for him….you could put him in a zip up jacket with a hood too.
HAVE FUN!!! And don’t worry about the nay sayers. I wish we could take Jacob camping but Chris is not a big camper and would rather not. Grrrrr
