Baby on board! If you’re one of the thousands of Americans who enjoyed RVing pre-kiddos and are looking to bring your newborn or infant along on your next trip, then good for you! RVing is the perfect family activity. Families with children love RVing because it’s easier to stay on a schedule, manage meals, and create the perfect sleep environment so that when you do get home, the transition back to normal life is easier than ever.
Here’s Why Families Love RVing With Babies
Families love RVing with babies because of the flexibility that is afforded to them. They aren’t subject to an airplane or cruise line’s schedule. They don’t risk losing luggage. They can come and go as they wish. These are all super important factors because as we all know, babies march to the beat of their own drums. No one wants to be stuck 40,000 feet in the air with a baby screaming because it’s nap time but they can’t fall asleep. RVing saves you from worrying about all of this.
How To RV With a Baby
While RVing is flexible, there are still some things you can do to make your trip just that much more enjoyable.
Use a Sound Machine
Whether you’re staying at a campground designed for families or one of the national parks that’s way out in the sticks, there are going to be noises that you run into that you don’t have at home. You can help ensure your little one sleeps by growing out any noise with a white noise machine. The Hatch Baby is a favorite because it comes with a battery that runs for 8 hours, so you don’t have to worry if the power goes out. You can also add an app to your phone, but make sure you prevent texts and calls from coming in and disrupting the sound.
Use Blackout Curtains
Everyone should have blackout curtains. These eliminate every ray of sun so that you can get the most sleep possible. Babies are triggered to wake whenever they see light, which is why all the sleep experts encourage a room that’s dark and cool.
Keep It Cool
Babies sleep best in an environment that is cool. Run your AC and use a fan to make sure your tot has a room that is the perfect temperature.
