  • We took an 800 mile trip (driving, in the car) when our daughter was 2 months old. It took us two days to do it. Haven't been on an airplane with our daughter yet, and she's 15 months.

  • Jack just drove across the country at 3-4 weeks old. First we took a 8 hour trip to visit my in-laws when he was 3 weeks. After the weekend we drove about 2000 miles to our new home outside of Portland, OR. It took us about 5 days to drive it.
    My oldest was also 3 weeks the first time she took a long drive (8 hours). With our other kids we used to go for random drives and would be in the car most of the day but never actually went anywhere. We'd drive around, have lunch, go to a park and then drive home. We did it pretty much from the time they were a couple weeks old (when I felt better after my c-section).
