*Taking Baby To A Festival


Dying to go to that festival coming up but just had a baby? Don't worry you can take them with you! There's no reason why you can't go other than the fact everyone's telling you that you can't take a baby to a festival. Well they are wrong! The younger your baby the better, they will most probably sleep through it all however don't be right up at the front near the speakers or moshing it. It's a good idea to stay as far back as possible to avoid deafening them. You can still enjoy the atmosphere of the music festival sat on a hill around a fire or even by your tent. 

If you are taking an older baby who is mobile it's a good idea to take a pushchair that is good on off road surfaces. Don't forget a rain cover and also a sun canopy you never know how quickly the weather may change. Let them run around in the fresh air during the day and tire them out. When it's their nap time you can wheel them around and enjoy the festival whilst they snore their little heads off. As with a younger baby a baby carrier or backpack is a great way to carry them around, and keep them off the ground. Bring plenty of toys and a travel cot or playpen is a good idea if you are staying around the tent. 

You may decide to camp, if so don't forget to bring along all of your essentials and camping equipment. RV Ops have a large selection of camping gear for sleeping and cooking. Don't worry about nap time and routines. Let your baby sleep when they feel like it and feed them when they are hungry, go with the flow. 

Again, don't worry about what others think. You can go to a festival if you are pregnant or with a baby. Enjoy it and relax. You will have a great time! 

Have you been to a festival with a baby or thinking about it in the future?

  2. We haven't done much of festivals yet mainly because nothing comes here! I want to do more with my kiddos.

  3. If you're far enough back that no harm's going to come to the little one, why not go? I don't see a problem with it all.

  4. I think you do need to think about the volume of the music and either keep them away from where it's loudest or get them ear defenders. We're taking our littlie to her first festival this summer but one of the benefits of her hearing loss is that she's not going to damage her hearing any further!
