If you’re a member of Hike it Baby, chances are, you’re an outdoors lover. You might have ventured out on backpacking or car camping trips before you started a family, but camping with kids can be intimidating, to say the least. What if they don’t sleep? What if they get bored? And what if they go feral and turn on us? (No? Just me?) Don’t worry. With the right planning, you can make sure your overnight adventure is a successful one, and we have some advice to help your time outdoors.
First, make sure your tent is big enough. I don’t know how this is possible, but my toddler manages to take up more room when sleeping than both me and my husband combined. So for our first camping trip as a family, we opted to upgrade from our cozy two-man tent to something twice as big. You’ll be grateful for the extra space, too.
