What about renting a cabin in the mountains and going hiking (they make awesome hiking infant carriers, or even baby-wearing wraps could work if it’s not too hot out)?

We did a weekend away with friends when DD was about 4 months old and aside from the breast pump it was surprisingly easy to travel with the baby.

She’s 7 months now, and I feel comfortable co-sleeping with her so we wouldn’t have to travel with a pack-n-play.  When she was younger I brought along a co-sleeping nest so she could safely be in the same bed as I was.

What sort of activities/vacations did you guys go on before the baby?  Could you do something similar?

I agree renting a cabin/or camping. We went camping in a tent with our little boy when he was about that age. We have a 4 person tent and had the pack n play along for using as a bed/nap for little boy at the time. We also used a tarp on the ground than a blanket on top of that with toys spread around (pretty good sized) for letting him play.  They also make collaspable high chairs that look like camping chairs or we used a high chair you can clamp on to the pinic table.  We just made sure had night lights/snacks/food and quite a few toys for him to play with.

What we did was things around his napping/feeding schedule.

I don’t have a baby… so I have no idea what babies like to do on vacay. But what about Myrtle Beach? Or Florida? They both should have decent weather in January and they’re a short flight from NYC. I love Myrtle Beach and I think there’s lots to do???
