    Camping with babies?

    Me and the wife are big campers and due to our daughter being born a couple of weeks ago e haven't had the chance to go this year, well since May anyway!!

    We are looking at a new tent with the intention of going next year. Obviously the little one will be about 9 months by May, which is when we usually start going, anybody camped with a child that age? any tips? I suggested some sort of 'cage', the wife laughs at me but i don't think she understands what i mean!!

    Any tips or ideas will be great!!

    Also wher i can find an Outwell Minnesota 4 for less than £200!

    Nah, it's the follow up to "Dances with Wolves" :-D

    If in this country then you'll need a damn good heater as well. :-D

    Try a travel cot .... can be used as a play pen during the day.

    Or as experienced by my 9 mth old nephew....a large laundry basket!

    and a baby sleeping bag.

    See, cage!!

    Although i envisioned it a little smaller

    you could take a travel cot and use that at night and as a playpen. So when your cooking etc baby is safe.

    We went camping for the first time this year and i hated it. whats the secret . How do ya keep the floor clean lol.

    it folds up quite small and can be used to keep baby safe during the day when you are cooking and things:)

    Floor clean? You're in the middle of a field!!! I wouldn't worry about the floor!! :-D

    Re:keeping floor clean. - we used to use those rush/rafia beach mat
    thingys.

    Length of rope and a tent peg.

    Tie rope around bubs waist, fasten to tent peg, job done.

    yeah we used a travel cot too - not sure what we're gonna do next time now she has outgrown it.

    There are tonnes of 'camping with babies' threads over on the uk campsite forum
