Camping with a toddler can be a difficult affair at the best of times. Mounts top 10 tips for camping with a toddler will help prepare both the experienced camper and newbie camper.
The birth of Mounts started after the founder took his wife and 16 month daughter camping for their first post pregnancy ‘expedition’. The site was a tester for some multi day sites they were due to visit later that month. They bought a family sized tent and assumed the copious gear the founder had amassed over the years would take care of anything else. When we arrived a farmer took one look at us and the pile of gear immediately throwing us into his tractor for a ride to site. In hindsight it was unlikely the transport of our copious amounts of gear was going to be an achievable effort on foot. A 4cm mattress, fleece PJ’s and 3 Tog sleep sack later we had learned this was not suitable for our daughters comfort and safety. She was freezing and let us know it!
As first time parents we have always followed advice on SIDS and safe sleeping. After this experience we felt we had let our guard down. All the understanding, experience and gear the founder had did not transfer to keeping his young daughter safe and warm.
As soon as we returned home like any other upcoming expedition I began researching the suitable tools for an enjoyable and safe family experience but too my dismay their was little suitable choices available. I have always been able to optimize my experiences through organization and gear. The outdoor industry caters to the extreme expedition but misses the optimized outdoorsmen looking to take their child on their first experiences in a safe hassle free way.
Mounts was created to step in to help bridge this void. Every mountain starts as a mount. Get back on the trail! Bring your family together through experience and create safe memorable moments forever!
