This weekend, we’re taking our first road trip up to New Hampshire with the baby and Boots. I used to think that making the four hour drive with just the dog was a challenge, and I’m feeling a little nervous about doing it with a baby!
We have her on a pretty tight schedule for feedings, so the plan is for me to feed her and then leave right after that so we can drive for 2.5-3 hours without stopping (or at least we can dream!). We’ll stop when it’s time to feed again, but what I’m worried about is in between.
Question 1: Should we stay stopped for “awake time” or is me reading her books in the backseat realistic?
Question 2: What should we pack for the car? We have her diaper bag with wipes, cream, diapers, a changing pad, a change of outfit, and all the other essentials, my hand pump, and books to keep her occupied. I also bought a little mobile thing to hang on the car seat so she can look at it while we drive.
Question 3: What are your thoughts on timing? Is my idea of feeding her then leaving right away a good one?
Any tips are appreciated!
