Hope you all can help me. I'm soon to go on my 1st ever camping trip, taking my husband, two daughters, young son and baby (10 months). Has anyone got any good advice to pass on as to what I'll need to take and what to take to my life easier! .

We're travelling in the people carrier and have a three bedroom tent - all tips extremely welcome!

What sort of campsites will you be going to? Empty fields or fully equipped?

Supposed to be fully equipped, we haven't bought a gas stove yet, so need some advice please!

Wellies are good for early morning trips to the loo when the grass is wet.
Freeze a carton of milk, it will double as an ice block until it defrosts.
Wee bucket for the middle of the night!
A vat of wine and pack of Uno cards.
Dustpan and brush.
Decent lamp for nighttime.
Hot water bottles in case it's cold at night.
We took a gazebo last time and it was great for dd to play under in the sun.
Our gas stove is one that comes on a stand. It's useful for storage.

I'll keep thinking .... in the meantime call for Sally Strawberry!

Practice with the tent before you get getting it up and down....
