I'm a new Dad and looking for some advice on getting my new baby started with the outdoors. My wife is on the same page as myself; she wants to start him early as well.
I took my 6 day old son on a 3 mile hike, more of a walk. (he slept the whole time)
I'm looking for some specific adivice and wisdom concerning young babies and river trips. I'm looking to take my new son on a couple easy overnight river trips this next season; he will be 9 monthes in June. What has worked well or hasn't worked well concerning seating, placement on boat, shade, camping (sleeping), clothing, changing diapers, etc?
I'm really excited about taking my family down some rivers, but don't want to over do it. I really hope my kid loves the water, boating, and fly-fishing but I understand that this needs to be his choice. Any advice on introducing kids to your hobbies and passions without burning them out???
Obviously, I not going to drag him around every weekend. I'm just looking for some thoughts and advice from parents who have already experienced this.
