We put him in the bottom bunk with a bed rail. It worked out pretty well, but it took a little work to get at him. It will be nice when he can sleep on the bunk without worry of falling off.
I know whatcha mean our baby girl Kaya was almost 9months old a couple weeks back when we took her on her first scamping trip...she was "magnetically attracted" to crawl to the dirt too haha
She was and still is teething and just getting over a cold so needless to say she wasn't sleeping too well, especially in a whole new environment like the scamp

I have been trying to decide on the best way to close in the side dinette to make it a crib for her.
Hoping the next trip in about 3 weeks will go better since its for 5 nights and allot furthur from home this time(10hrs) and a musicfest taboot

Here's a confession from the "Bad Grandma" department:
My little grandson was about two the first time I took him camping without his parents.
Putting the dinette cushion inside the sleeping bag had worked very well to keep his older sister from rolling off in the night- but it didn't stop Hunter!
After the first night of putting him back in bed, I decided to "go with the flow"-
for the rest of the week, he started out- and stayed- on the floor under the dinette!
We called it "sleeping in the basement".......


Hunter's parents still don't know what that means-
