With only three weeks to go until we head to Woodford Folk Festival our camping equipment is getting piled up. However this year we are taking a little lady who will be 8 months old with us. Roy and I have our standard bits and pieces in the pile but do we need to take extra things for Isla. We camp out for eight nights at the site, this will be my ninth year attending and I feel like a bit of a Woodford veteran. Yet Roy has been to every single Woodford – yes even the ones in Maleny. Knowing what to expect at the festival is great but we have never done it with a little one in tow.
I can’t wait to go this year. I now have an excuse to go to the kids festival area and check it out. Isla is going to have a great time.
Roy and I did a practice camp last weekend for a night to see what else we may need to pack or take. I feel our list is lacking a little. I want to take everything Isla needs including her jolly jumper so she can have bounce to her heart’s content – she loves that thing.
I have a porta cot for Isla to sleep in, a plastic flexi tub for washing her in yet how many toys should I take? We are away from home for eight nights, are there any tricks I should be aware of? I always take her snuggle blanket for overnighters so she has something that smells like home with her. Oh, we are also organising some baby ear muffs to cover those sensitive ears from the loud music. Though last year she kicked like crazy to the bagpipes of all things.
PLEASE SHARE ALL YOUR ADVICE. TELL ME EVERYTHING?
Yes that is our tent, cool isn’t it. The only thing it is lacking is windows for ventilation but its super waterproof and only has one pole.
