Perhaps no other family activity strikes more excitement and apprehension in the hearts of new parents than the words “road trip”. Parents or grandparents looking forward to experiencing new places with their family –may also dread the cries of “Are we there yet?” and “I’m boooored!”. And what if these complaints aren’t in the form of words, but come from a crying baby?
Family road trips generally are wonderful experiences, but add a baby to the mix and it’s a whole new ballgame. From lack of diaper-changing stations at rest stops to the challenge of comforting your baby while driving, traveling with an infant presents obstacles for even the most patient of parents to overcome. With a bit of planning, your next road trip with your baby or toddler can be smoother, less stressful and more enjoyable for the whole family.
