5 Tips for Camping with Babies

When this little guy was a baby and we would take him camping he would happily hang in this car seat. If he got board down low we could move him up high and he would enjoy seeing things from a new perspective. I know that not all babies love being in their car seat so we have come up with several ideas for keeping a baby happy while camping.

5 Tips for Camping with Babies

  • Bring a Tarp and blanket: Throw down a tarp, and cover it with a blanket for an easy play area for little ones that aren’t toddling around yet. We have also used a pack and play for little ones.
  • Baby Lounging: Pack the Boppy, or the bumbo. Perfect for propping up baby to take in the views!
  • Water for Baby: Bring Bottled water for bottles. If you bottle feed, take enough bottled water so you don’t have to rely on the water source in your campground. I also like to have several bottles filled with water ready to go. I always keep a formula dispenser handy to make filling bottles really easy when we are on the go!
  • Baby Entertainment: Don’t forget the Portable Swing: MUST HAVE!! This is great for naps, hanging out, and helpful for while you’re busy with meal prep and more!
  • Bath Time: Empty out your tote for a pool or bath. If you’re headed out for a longer period of time or it’s hot…take a tote with you that you can fill up with water and have your kiddo take a dip. This has saved us a few different times when it was HOT, and also when the kids got dirty!

Essential Oils I like to have a roller bottle of diluted lavender to help my baby sleep at night. I also like to have a roller bottle of my favorite Essential Oil Repellent Blend to help ward off insects… I feel so good about putting this on my little ones instead of those yucky smelly sprays! If you would like to learn about how I get essential oils for less text or email us at 208-908-OILS or seekingwellness@fabulesslyfrugal.com.
