    Default Camping with 5 month old baby - what do I need to remember??

    We're off camping this weekend with our 5 month old DS and I'm sooooooo not a seasoned camper. I haven't been since I was about 15!
    We're up in Cairns.

    Fly net, we went summer 2014 with my 3 month old (who was a severe refluxer and bottle fed which was interesting haha) there were flies everywhere! Tub to wash baby in for baths, portacot makes a good play pen and u can put the net over it if the flies are buzzing and something for baby to sit in like a bouncer

    We're going camping this weekend near Cairns my ds is 10 months and I'm taking: camp high chair, his snack food, small mattress to sleep on in the tent, mossie repellent, sunscreen, swimmers, lots of nappies and wipes, 2 x muslin sheets and probably a mossie net too. Also his baby carrier.

    We first took DD camping when she was 7 months (she is now 17 months and loves camping).

    Are you going bush camping or to somewhere with facilities?

    Lots and lots of baby wipes. More nappies than you think you need. A mat/rug to put on the ground for bub to lay on (I assume he isn't too mobile yet).

    Our first camping trip was to Granite Gorge - thoroughly recommend it.
