  • Hotel for sure, especially with little ones.

  • I think hotel for now would be best.

  • If you're not a seasoned camper then hotel. For us it's camping all the way.

    I've gone camping when both of my kids were itty bitty infants and when my oldest became a toddler. There's nothing wrong with it as long as you prepare for the trip properly. Go camping!

  • We didn't tent with an infant - we had a 1yo & 2.5yo when we tented and it was great! Then my IL's got a 5th wheel camper and we took our younger 2 as newborns - I wouldn't have tented with them at the ages we went. I'm not big on hotels lately though with all the bed bug infestations going on around the (country? world? don't know how wide-spread it is but it sounds to me like it's getting worse and it starts in hotels!). I'd honestly choose camping over hotel right now though, even with a newborn!

  • I think with that small a baby you'd be better to go to a hotel. If it was just the 2 year old I'd say camping but not with a new baby.
