My partner and I are seasoned tent campers.
We are going to go away as a family this year. Especially about sleeping arrangements.
Take a short break from parenting now and then. Between the ages of 2 and 3 years, 41 per cent of young children wake once or twice a night, with a few still waking more often.
We have a five person tent. What does the nipper sleep in and on? In his cot he sleeps in a bag but wriggles around various positions all night. How do we keep him on a thermarest or suchlike? What is it best to have him sleep in?
The very act of putting a baby down, into the cot or crib, causes their falling reflex to trigger, startling them awake because of the presence of imminent danger falling. If your baby is like any other mammalian baby on the planet floor beds allow them to fall asleep snuggled next to you.
Will he wake very early due to the light coming in the tent? At home we have black out curtains. Any other comments would be gratefully received.
Thanks in advance for any advice. As said above, going to bed can be a bit tricky due to the light, but being outdoors all day helps with that.
If your tent is big enough, remember to put the zip pullers high when you close the doors. Both help to keep them contained and limit movement to a certain extent.
Our daughter, now 6, has always slept much better when camping, especially in our camper van. Her bunk is more light proof than her bedroom at home.
But I think the fresh air and exercise are the main factors. She often sleeps an hour or two later in the camper van. Used baby sleeping bags vango nitestar etc but never bothered with a travel cot.
When they were small they would be on a matt between ours made keeping an eye on them and feeding them easier. I would usually lie doen with them to help settle them ehrn they were younger but as they get older laying in sleeping bags chatting and reading books is more fun. I have camped at -7 with my two youngest, we used a double airbed I was in the middle so they rolled against me.
I can thorougly recommend them as draught excluders and they appreciated me as a hot water bottle — the boys loved it espescially waking up in a frosty frozen tent We all sleep better in tents than we do in houses — makes me wonder if we could have a bedouin style existance sometimes.
