Why not just get a little pack up camp bed from go outdoors or similar at first, just to see if he likes coming? It's what I did when I first started taking my godson when he was 7. They pack up tiny, only take a couple of minutes to put together, comfortable, and only about £20. I used to get my Nash sleep system, and him on that under a tempest brolly

I have a Tempest Advanced Brolly with the social cap. I use the social cap to get more space when Iím with my boy, and only use the Brolly when I go solo.

If you want to extend the footprint of a 1 man bivvy look into the Advanta Uni-Extended Overwrap and Porch from Angling direct it almost doubles the space of your 1 man bivvy,therefore saving you to not go buy a 2 man bivvy and gives you a overwrap for your bivvy in one too.
This will give you extra space for your young uns bed be it a junior size or regular size.
Half price at Angling Direct at the moment too.

Those of you that have the junior bedchairs and take your kids, are there any better suited 1 man bivvies in terms of space and getting both beds in? Didnt really want to have to get a 2 man bivvy.

Planning to take my lad around the same age (he's 4 in July)

Will start off by seeing if can stand a night on the bivvy, set up in the garden, before heading out to the bank.

Knowing him and how much he loves water, he'll probably wanna spend the time swimming in the lake rather than sitting with me listening to R4

I took my boy a couple of times last summer at age 4, after we spent some months before that fishing for silvers etc which he loved. I donít think all kids are ready for it at age 4, but Iím lucky my boy loves the adventure and actually has the patience to fish with a float for several hours himself already. How old is yours?

The Nash junior bed chairs were well reduced over Christmas, might still be some well priced if you have a look around

Was in the same boat couple of years back, took my boy and he loved it, after a bit of research i ended up getting the Nash junior bedchair, light and compact and he loves it. I use Trakker 100T and still plenty of room inside.
If you do brave it in winter though, iíd recommend a fleece cover or similar to put over the top for the!

Both my lads used a rolled up foam camping mat initially when they started coming with me. Didn't want get them a bedchair if they didn't like it after 1 visit!!

If you're set on a bedchair, depends what size your bivvy is. If you've got a 2 man, then I think I'd look one of the compact adult ones like the Wychwood. If it's a 1 man bivvy, then look at the junior ones. Whichever way you go, I'd have a look at the second hand market first.
