View Full Version : "Camping" with 7 week old

06-23-2008, 03:30 PM
We go camping every year with my in-laws and are planning on making the trip again next week. Our version of camping is not very primative, LOL, we go to a campground in a trailer and shop at the local walmart. This year we're planning on staying in a nearby motel at night and spending the days at the trailer.

What do I need to make sure to bring for our 7 week old? PNP for the motel, moses basket for the trailer. I have a big floppy hat for her and plan to keep her out of the sun as much as possible. At 7 weeks, can I use sunscreen? If so, what brands are best and are there limits on how much/how often to apply? What to do about insects - mosquito netting? repellants?

Thanks! :)

I had a screen/net that you could put over the bucket car seat that kept out insects--I woudn't put any repellant on a baby that young. For "sunscreen" at that age, I put DD in the babybjorn and then pinned a pillow case over her so her legs would be covered and did the hat thing for her head.
