We're considering a 5-day trip with our 1-year old somewhere near our home,San Diego, CA but at some moments it seems like mission impossible to me! Please share your experiences and advice!

It will be easy. Same as in a permanent home, except you will get to see them be amazed at a blade of grass, or a big, or even maybe a bird flying by.

our kids were tossed in the pack and play at the age of 6 months and off camping/RV'ing we went....

OK,, settle down you all... we didn't actually toss them in [emoticon]

It is as easy as you make it,.....

We brought along a large section of extra carpet to put down outside to have a soft and safe place to play.
First camp was at 5 months old. Like any day... don't expect to accomplish too much. Just have fun.

Our daughter was less than a year old camping in our old TC. It was great! Bathed her in sink.

My girls started camping at 6 weeks. They are now in their 50's and are still actively camping. Have fun and keep them safe.

Little kids have been camping in my family for generations. They become more durable by about 6 months and you can take them everywhere.

My daughter's first camping trip was when she was barely a month old. We were tent camping then. All seemed fine then. Of course now, my rule is I like all kids as long as they belong to someone else, are quiet, and stay at least 50 feet away from me.

daughters first trip was at 4 months (winter baby) and son went at 7 weeks. A baby needs the same things camping as at home, bring what's required and no problem. We has a smaller packNplay for the camper that fit in the isle. Expect travel to take longer as they will need to stop more often. Make sure they are eating and drinking as they should and enjoy

We took at 1600 mile trip with our 16 month old granddaughter last month. She loved it. Took her high chair, she slept in our king size bed with us, several of her favorite toys and we were good to go. She had more fun exploring outside and seeing her great aunts and uncles than palying with her toys. Start them early so the love of camping gets in their blood.
