Travel tips, Hiking with your baby

 

As you plan the next adventure with your baby, check out these parting tips before venturing out:

Start small: Try some day hikes to test out your baby carrier, and test out a short float before setting off on a multi-day trip. Rent a rustic cabin instead of camping the first time. Backpack a three-mile route to a lake instead of a 10-mile route up a peak.

Expect it to be different . . . and difficult: Set your expectations low on the epic scale but high on the memorable-moments factor.

Plan for diaper duty: Bring extra plastic bags to contain disposables or consider cloth diapers, since you can dry out and use the sun’s UV light to sanitize peed-in inserts in the sun.

Pack less than you think you need: This may not seem intuitive, but all a baby needs is enough clothes to stay warm (not clean – they will get dirty). Toys are heavy and unnecessary when nature provides free, abundant entertainment.

Take breaks often: Rest regularly for you and for baby to eat and drink and to stop and smell the roses as you congratulate yourself for getting outside.

Be safe: Check in with your instincts and use common sense in the great outdoors. And bring along a small med kit that includes nontoxic bug repellent, sunblock and a fever-reducer, just in case.
