Were staying two day, taking the baby carrier, bags of healthy snacks, and a cooler of water and juice, and ofcourse all the necesseties.
Have you ever gone on a trip like that with a toddler? Is there anything you didnt bring that you wished you had?

maybe one of thise toddler leash things. cause im sure he /she wont want to be in backpack the entire time. maybe something like watermellon. thats kids will usually eat in case u cant get him to drink enough.
have fun! we go hiking w r kids. they r fine. but we v never done an overnight like that. our ds is 3 and dd is 16mo :) ull be fine

Make sure you bring something for you child to nap on, babies/toddlers get more tired quickly and you will stop more frequently. I live a very active life style and my kids go everywhere with me from camping to hiking.
