Eldest son went 3 times before he was 3. Having not got tickets for a few years he will be 6 with his 2 year old brother this year.
The younger they are the easier it is to have a ‘normal’ Glastonbury. We have camped in the masses, near south park and in wickets family. Currently debating where to stay this year. Wickets is great, clean, lots of space, fence round to stop the kids wandering, but is miles from where we spend most of our time green peace, park, Avalon. They do have kids composters in the family fields but best to have a travel potty. Last time we were there our 3 year old strolled up to the toilets, walked in, took one look and said I am not going on that.
other than having some form of wagon plan well in the morning, use the lock ups for strategic placing of stuff for easy access later in the day. Saves trecking back to the tent.
A Glastonbury with kids has to be better than no Glastonbury. It is not going to be the same with kids as without, but life isn’t. What you miss out on by having your child there you gain by having them there.
Kids don’t mind the mud - far less so than the adults. My 3 year old last time spent many happy hour running through the puddles. Just more of a pain for the parents trying to keep them dry.
I am parking at ashcombe park and ride as can’t risk being parked in the furthest car park on the map like last time.
Bit of a random order in my post but just putting things down as they come to my head.
