    Packing now and I feel so overwhelmed. I am so stressed about it all. What have I gotten myself in for!

    Pack lots of wipes - they can be used for so many things. Have fun, you really don't need as much as you think.

    It will be fine! As long as you have plenty of warm clothes and bedding - everything else you can do without if you need to!

    One thing we take in the cooler weather is hot water bottles for the kids. The nights get very cold, especially in tents!

    DH is a mad keen camper (I loathe it) so when he takes the kids he always packs extra polar fleece blankets. They're incredibly light and warm and once DD1 got gastro while they were camping and vomited on everything and they were a godsend as he was able to still keep her warm.

    If you're sleeping on blow up mattresses, put a blanket under the fitted sheet - it will insulate you from the cold ground. Otherwise you can get very blooming cold!

    Spare batteries!

    Last time we went camping we found a wind-up lantern which was great - you don't have to worry about it running out of batteries when you're trying to get kids to bed etc, just wind it up again.

    Rain coats

    First aid kit (including antiseptic cream & whatever you normally put on insect bites)
