Suggestions, travel crib needed

I am looking for some suggestions for a good traveling crib(s) to put into our motorhome. We are trying to prepare as much as we can now while I can still attempt to touch my toes without toppling over.

Us too

We too are looking at sleeping accesories for newborn to come.

Wife thinks we can get something beside our bed, I think not.

maybe I can rig something to hang from ceiling.

I will keep an eye on this thread,

Chuck,

Thanks for the heads-up on the link. I am not so sure about the bouncy chair though. Just call me a paranoid mommy to be. I am looking for something easy to travel with that will accomodate twins. Yes twins...

I do have to agree with you smily. I do not see anyway to fit something next to the bed. Possibly at the foot but then it will be sticking into the entrance and 6'4" hubster will end up stubbing his toe and have to try some hurdling track and field bit and I can just see it now. Oh that thought is just too scary. If you happen to think of something to rig maybe you can share the idea.

Thank you

Twins

A whole new meaning to the Term.

"twins for Twins in the rear"

You're telling me. Although I think you may have just help me in having one of those brilliant ideas I tend to have. No comments required from the peanut gallery on that one thank you. Maybe switch out the queen and put in twins. Might give me a little more room to work with then.

Why not up front?

Why couldn't you maybe set something up in the front in terms of a crib? Unless you are accustomed to keeping the baby's crib in the bedroom with you, you could have some kind of a crib up by the dinette or couch or whatever, and use baby monitors so that you can hear them when/if the A/C is running. During the day you could break it down if possible, and arrange for the baby(ies) to nap in the back during the afternoon?

Just a thought. :-)

Ok....how about..........TWO bouncy chairs?

sorry...I just can't help it


Ok, seriously, though: our setup was quite secure. they're belted in, and can't move. now way they can get out, or fall out. and the chair was well secured. wish I had a picture, but I don't.

Dave,

Actually I had been thinking of something along those lines but, when we travel with others there may be a slight problem with the babies being up there and us in the back. When we have been able to travel it has been mainly our daughter and a friend with her and they normally sleep on the pull out.
I just had another strange thought. Again, no comments from that famous peanut gallery needed but, what about baby seats? One would not be as large a problem but, two are going to be required. After remodeling the interior and taking out the barrel chairs and replacing with a chair and a half where can one strap in baby seats? And that would meet with legal standards?

Question legal standards... RV's and child safety seats?

Hadn't thought about that... I wonder what the guidelines are regarding infants and/or children below a certain age traveling in an RV? Seems there would be something regarding how to properly secure a child safety seat while in motion...

Found some info...

Found some info here...

It almost sounds like, for the youngest, you might think about rear-facing child seats (2) single file in the aisle, bolted to the floor using reinforced backing plates and seat belt/harness material. Something that can be loosened and unhooked quickly if necessary... And maybe the hooking mounts could be flush in the floor so as not to stub toes... Might be a little overkill but maybe safer...?

Dave,

Thanks so much for the link. I will check it out and see what is recommended.

Has anyone out there by chance traveled with two young ones at the same time in a motorhome? If so, could you please share your experiences with the child safety seats?

Thanks to all for your help,
Beth

Safest Seat

I would assume that the safest seating for the two would be the rearward facing dinette seat, especially when they get toddler age, with the rearward facing seat they won't have to just look at the back of a cushion. The seatbelts should already be mounted, I had to remove the seat bottom to pull them out the first time we used the belts on ours.
