We are taking a trip to see my family, and i am nervous about how my son will do.

He's almost 4 months old, but the trip is long. we're planning on cutting it in half and taking two days to get there, but that's still an eight to ten hour day. any suggestions or encouragement?

  • He will probably do just fine. As long as he is fed and changed regularly, there should be no problems at all. Take along a couple of items that he is very familiar with, and you will have an enjoyable trip.

  • i have a 3yr ds and he did fine in the car. when he was a baby id take long car rides and he did just fine. as long as you stop reg to change/feed him, he should be fine.

  • He will probley sleep most of the time. Just will want to be fed and changed but take along a favorite blanket or even a toy just in case but that young they are easier than when they get older.
