Thanks- he's pretty good, but WOW, he's using about 15-20 diapers a day.

We did a home birth, and even considered an Airstream Birth, but the only one big enough, is our 33' Spartan Mansion, and its not ready yet. We would have had to take out the old insulation, and its a pretty big job. Maybe for the next one.

I don't know if we'll use the drawer again, we're getting ready for summer, will go on 3-4 month trip in Europe, and send the Flying Cloud over with a bed arranged for him out of the foam. Its always interesting how we have to adapt for him, he's 2 weeks old, turned our world upside down, but makes everything we do worthwhile- hope you have the same feelings and have a great experience camping.

good times with the kidlet
We had our first trip in the airstream with our six month old last weekend. Since we have a 34' we put the pack n play in the living room for sleeping. We also have twin beds so I might try the suggestion of taking off the mattress on one and securing the pack n play on the wood, just to have it out of the way.

The funny thing was the kid slept better in the airstream than he does at home! We thought about full timing til he gets older just so we can get more sleep!

That's so funny our little girl did the same, she slept 6 hours straight for the first time!!!

The only problem is that she was up earlier, my guess is because of the light. We can't seem to get the inside dark enough once the sun is up.

Here is something we found that is great for travelling with the wee one, the Chicco Hippo Chair. Hooks onto a sturdy picnic table and also folds down compact for storage. Won't fit on the main dinette b/c the child can push off from the centre table leg, but we are going to try it on the fold out table in front of the couch and see if it is sturdy enough. Here is a pic from the Toys r Us catalogue.

Well, the kidlet is now ten months old and HUGE, outgrown the compact pack n play we have been using for his bed.

Thinking of getting one of these by Phil and Ted. I think it will fit in between the twin beds (without the stabilizer feet for outdoor use) and is very long (51 inches) and can be used to age 3. That's two more camping seasons!

Has anyone tried one? If you take off a mattress and put it on the bed it also has a side zipper for easy access.
