Stupid idea? Or go for it?

My eldest two,really want to go to the beach and it's going to be a nice day for it.
But I also have a 5 week old the baby will be in a car seat for 45 minutes each way .  We will take an umbrella as there is no natural shade. The beach is sandy. She is breastfed on demand.
Stupid idea or not?

 I'd go, if it wasn't working after a few hours, pack up and go home. 45 minutes isn't THAT far if you ask me. I don't imagine you kids will want to stop going to the beach..and it's not fair to them. Do you have a friend or family member to call to come with so you have an extra set of arms and eyes?

Go for it. 45 minutes isn't that long of a car ride. She can lay on a blanket under the umbrella at the beach. I've known plenty of people who take babies to the beach.

Is she good in the car yet? How do you feel physically? I don't think I'd go.
