  • The only tip I have is to travel during normal sleeping hours. It makes it a lot easier. Bring something to keep you sane as well.

  • bring plenty of diapers, formula if your bottle feeding, blankets, a safe car seat, emergency numbers, and all the usual stuff you would take along, only bring just as much more.

  • I had to drive 4 hours to a wedding with my son when he was 2 months old and it was great! He actually slept the whole way there and back! I wish now (at almost a year) the car ride thing would work for him to sleep! Otherwise bring whatever music your baby likes. My son never cries when Taylor Swift is on! lol
