Backcountry babies

How young can you take your kids outdoors? For some Alaska parents, there isn’t much of a limit, and they are taking babies backpacking, boating and camping. It makes sense. Babies are more portable that bigger kids, and they are constantly amused by the passing world from a backpack. But there are cautions to be aware of, and on our next show we’ll talk to a pediatrician as well as an adventurer to learn about taking babies to the backcountry.
