Apologies if this has been covered loads of times before...we're planning a touring camping holiday with dd (2) and dd/s (38 weeks just now!) for a month in France in the summer, very experienced campers, lovey big tent with 2 bedrooms etc, idea what to put the baby in to sleep in, who will be around 5/6 months old, not too heavy/bulky.

Any fab ideas? TIA

This sort of folding carry cot ?
Or this?

Several more options on that page.

A moses basket would be too small by 5/6 months, I think.

I recommend a travel cot - I know it seems impractical /too big but it can double as a playpen during the day. Next step is a 'ready bed' I think, airbed with inflated sides...with a growbag on top. A think one!!

If size and weight is an issue, you need something like the nomad travel cot. I got one from eBay last year for our dd and it's amazingly light and compact. The baby sleeps on a self inflating mat which is part of the cot. There's side or top opening so if you're at floor level you can easily get baby out during the night or have it open right next to you.

Little life arc 2, easy to transfer into and can throw a bit of Blackout fabric over if you want to make darker

We always just create one giant bed of sims and foam mats with blankets on top. Have a large duvet on top. Baby in grow bag with jumper on top. If cold, comes under duvet. If hot....we've never camped when it's been hot enough to do away with the grobags!
