Baby’s packing list for Camping
- Pack n’ Play Playard, Playpen or a travel bassinet for sleeping
Tip: If you camp with an Infant I would recommend taking a Pack and Play anyway. This way your kid can stay there while you busy cooking, assemble your tent and etc.
- Baby Carrier and/or backpack baby carrier.
If you plan to do some trekking or some walking in the park, it will be better to use a backpack baby carrier. For all other times, you can use your regular carrier.
- Bedding and warm blanket for night time.
- Net for the bed and the stroller.
- Receiving blankets for changing time
- Extra clothes and extra shoes
Tip: Take more clothes than you would think you will use.
- Warm clothes for night time.
Tip: It can be very cold at night time, therefore you should bring warm slippers and a jacket for early morning time.
- Baby Formula if needed
- Baby food
- Food utilities
- Booster for feeding time
If you have a small one that you can place on any chair or camping table it will be ideal.
- Diapers and Wipes
Bring as many as you can, you don’t want to be left without diapers.
- Small bags for dirty diapers.
- Sunscreen and hat.
- Mosquito protection for babies
- First aid kit including thermostat, medications to treat fever and after-bite cream.
- Shower utilities and towels
- Hand sanitizer gel
The gel will be a good tactic to clean your hands before feeding and after changing diapers.
- Bathing suit and Swim Pants
If you planning to go swimming every day, bring more than one bathing suit.
- Beach Shelter Tent or Sun Block Beach Umbrella
If you plan to go to the beach or if you have a sunny campsite, you will need to provide some shade for your LO’.
- Beach kids gear like baby float and sand toy set
- Toys, games, balls, books
If you camping with a toddler:
- Toddler camping bed or air bed.
We use the Regalo Baby camping bed. My LO’ really likes this bed.
