My almost-3 yr old daughter and almost-1 yr old son share a room. My son slept in a pack-n-play in our room until he was sleeping through the night, and then we moved him into the other bedroom. While he was learning to sleep in that new place, we moved my daughter's mattress into our room and she slept on the floor. That took about a week. Now, they sleep together well. My daughter has a slightly later bedtime, so my son is already asleep when we put her down. They aren't on the same nap schedule yet, but that's my next thing to tackle!

I think they can be super cute, but can't get on board with even the obviously imaginary ones (I saw a unicorn on etsy). It's too weird to me!

We took my daughter camping when she was 10 months old, and again just this June at 20 months. We set the playpen up in the tent, and make sure the flap is down so that she can't see us. The most difficult thing about sleeping at night is that it is light out so much later than her normal bedtime, and there are no "black-out" curtains like in her bedroom. That also meant she woke up earlier than normal. For naps, she generally slept while we were on hikes (she was in a sling) or bike rides (in her child seat). We didn't stress too much about her staying exactly on schedule. I agree with the earlier comment about trying to pick a place with water- that entertained her forever!!! We didn't bring toys along other than her bedtime lovies; she was totally enthralled with the sticks, rocks, grass, birds, etc. that was all around her. I also agree with the earlier comment about bringing a lot of extra clothes and not worrying too much about getting dirty.
