BABY FRIENDLY RV DESTINATIONS

Babies are precious traveling companions, but sometimes trying to plan a trip when you have a little one can be a little daunting. Will there be appropriate accommodations? Are we going to run out of diapers, food, etc.? Did we remember to pack everything he or she needs? That’s why an RV makes the ideal mode of travel for anyone with a baby. While it isn’t as simple as slinging the baby over your shoulder and taking off on an adventure, traveling in an RV is like moving in a fully functional home. So with a little preparation, just about any RV destination can be a breeze.

 

 

Advantages of RVing with a Baby:

  • They don’t care about your itinerary. As long as the baby is safe and basic needs are met, you can still do most of the activities you normally would enjoy.
  • They won’t complain about your choice of restaurant or the fact that you want to visit a history museum.
  • In an RV it’s easier to create a routine for the baby than vacationing in a hotel.
  • No bathroom stops while driving (for 5th wheel & travel trailers).
  • They sleep A LOT and with a baby monitor that allows you to enjoy some downtime in and around the RV.

TIPS FOR RVING WITH A NEWBORN

Bringing someone new into this world is such a beautiful thing. Bringing an RV baby into the world, however, is on another level.

It was a little surreal when we found out Danielle was pregnant. We had been RVing full time for almost a year after what was supposed to only be a 6-month trip. Now, we were faced with the big dilemma that we’d been wrestling with in our minds…

“Do we continue to travel or is it time to settle down?”

 

 

We sat down to talk about the options and within minutes we came up with our decision: Adventure awaits and we’re going to keep on exploring this beautiful country. It wasn’t a difficult decision to make. We have loved RVing as a couple so much we couldn’t imagine being stationary at this point in our lives. We enjoyed 36 states last year, and there’s just too much left to see and do!

Luckily there are fellow full time RV families who have had babies while blogging and vlogging about their adventures. Reading their blogs gave us ideas on what to expect, and helped forge a vision of the future.

1000 MILES AND THE MEMORIES WITH THEM

 

Colorado

You may think having to extend plans an extra day for a doctor’s appointment* sounds like an inconvenience, but what about when your front yard is a view like this? We were happy to extend our stay in Colorado Springs where the view from our humble little campsite was not so humble!

 

*We get asked a lot about going to the doctor on the road, so for those who may be curious: For regular check ups we try to schedule them when we visit our hometown in California. If visiting home isn’t in the upcoming plans then we try to see a doctor in a town where we have friends. Hence this visit to my friend’s highly regarded dermatologist. In the rare instance of a situation that can’t wait – this has only happened once – we use Google to find a doctor in the area.
