Baby’s packing list for Camping

Tip: If you camp with an Infant I would recommend to take a Pack and Play anyway. This way you LO’ can stay there while you busy with cooking, assemble your tent and ect.
- 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 backpack baby carrier. For all other times, you can use your regular carrier.

- Net for the bed and the stroller.
- Receiving blankets for changing time
- Extra clothes and extra shoes
