I've been working on figuring out how to just do some day sails and perhaps one week-long cruise this summer with our newborn. I think we're preparing for two different things...

Best of luck. Sounds like an adventure!

Newborns are easy.

We took our son out at 6wks for a 2wk trip.
At that age they mostly just sleep.
I wore him in a baby carrier and manned the helm.
The Admiral took care of feedings and sails.
Bring the baby monitor with you.
Had a blast.

Just curious, but what do you do with two weeks worth of diapers?
