Sleeping Tips in a Tent
So you have the air mattress for yourself – now where are your kids going to sleep? I have a two year old and an infant. I wanted my 2 year old daughter to have her own space, but not take up the whole tent. I wanted a safe place for the infant where I wouldn’t worry about rolling over on him. Here is what works for my family.
My toddler, Daisy (2years old)
We bought an inflatable pool float. It even has a pillow on one side! I just draped a sheet over it and a warm camping blanket. She was so excited to have her own bed! I think this would work well for kids up to 12years old depending on the size of the pool float. Click here to see some inflatable pool floats
I packed all of our bedding in a large rectangular plastic laundry basket. I used that laundry basket as a bassinet for my baby. I put a folded towel and then a soft baby blanket for a “mattress”. In between midnight breast-feedings he slept GREAT! It worked well because it didn’t take up a lot of room in the tent but it gave him a cushioned & contained place to sleep.
Make time for the great outdoors.
Because kids don’t remember their best day of screen time.
MOSQUITOS!!! They constantly find you and can turn any camping trip into a scratch fest in a matter of minutes!
