On a colder day or on any overnight trip we also bring a snow suit. We still can't get F to sleep in a sleeping bag, so we just dress her in her snowsuit for sleeping.
We always bring two sets of footwear. In colder(snow) weather we would bring winter boots and booties. In wetter weather we would bring winter boots and rain boots. In warmer weather we would bring shoes and winter/rain boots.
What does your baby/toddler wear in the backcountry?
It becomes a lot more tricky to pack for trip once you have to think about others than yourself. The first time we went on an overnight trip after having a baby the packing took almost as long as the trip itself. Now we have perfected our packing and often doesn't start packing until F is put to bed on Friday night. I have put together a packing list that I will share with you. It includes a list for summer day trip and summer overnight/multiday trip. It is primarily aimed at summer backcountry hiking in the BC mountains with a baby or toddler.
Is there anything I forgot? Anything you would not bring? Anything require clarification? Please post a comment!
