So who has taken a road trip with the baby yet? Where did you go and how long was the drive? How did you break it up?
We are considering a road trip from MA to Nebraska in July to see family. It sounds terribly stressful to most I am sure but to me it sounds less stressful than flying with everyone and having to fiddle with 3 car seats, etc. I can't really figure out the logistics though since she doesn't STTN yet.

Wow Erin, that sounds fun!!! Will Aaron be back by then? I'd love to do a cross country trip!! You guys need to drive through nc!
The longest we've driven is about 3 hours to SC to see Bryan's family that lives there.
Have flown 2ce with her, one tip involving 3 flights with one being a 14-hour flight. She did excellently. We've only done an hour road trip and she did great. I am sure they'll do great; just break it up a bit for them.
We've done days where we're in and out of the car all day with a combined driving time of about 5 hours and she does really well. When she gets fussy I think it's more from boredom (understandable!) so we turn on some nursery rhymes and that helps.
