Amy is a good friend of mine, a previous room-mate, and now, a fellow mom. Before we became parents, our summer weekends were filled with “wild” cottage parties. Now, we go to the cottage to RELAX! Or at least we try… In order to help us relax, we need to ensure our kids our comfortable, safe and entertained. That is why Amy put together a list of what she believes are must-have items to bring when traveling with baby to the cottage. Whether you’re a new or seasoned cottager, hopefully you will find this list useful.
COTTAGE BABY ESSENTIALS ‘SURVIVAL KIT’
Dock, beer, suntan, swim, campfire, sleep and repeat...This is how I love to spend my time at the cottage. Cottage life IS the life as far as I’m concerned. And then our babe arrived. AND IT ALL CHANGED. Bugs, sunburns and naptimes have all but consumed our otherwise peaceful cottage existence. I trust Dr. Google for almost anything, but when I searched for ‘cottage baby essentials’, I was left empty and sad.
I’ve taken some time to source out some ‘must have’ cottage essentials that will restore your serene cottage life with infant in tow.
NAP TIME! Enjoy the dock while watching your babe sleep peacefully in the cottage. This beauty allows you view up to 400 feet away and is equipped with a two-way voice function as well as zooming capabilities. *Note: while the unit is reliable, nap times are not.

Let your little one play in the fresh air without the irritation of the bugs biting their flawless baby skin. This cheap multifunctional netting fits over your pack n’ play as well as a bassinet, stroller and more.
