Kids Home > Car Travel With an Infant
If you are taking a young child on a road trip, make sure to plan ahead. With an infant, car travel can be a bit hectic. This is why it is important to be prepared and flexible (you may have to improvise). The best tip for pulling off this type of travel is to work the trip around your baby's nap schedule.
What You Should Know About Infant Car Travel
- Be flexible -- Chances are, you are going to have to improvise at least a few times before you get to your destination. Give yourself plenty of time to get there; you're probably going to stop three times as many as you would if it was just you.
- Be prepared -- expect the unexpected. Murphy's Law exists for a reason. While your baby may have never been a big spitter-upper before, the new prolonged motion and break from the usual routine can be just what it takes to give anyone an unsettled tummy.
