Traveling with an infant

Oh my lanta.... Friday I will be driving 5 hours... with a 9 month old. {and that is without traffic} By myself.

Doesn't that sound like fun?

Nope, it sure dosen't.

I am going to try and plan this drive around Hyatt's nap. And I can tell you with certainty, he does not nap in 5 hour stretches.

For sure I will have to stop at least once for a bottle. And I am hopping that if I pack enough toys within his reach, attach his paci to the car seat {totally not so I can reach back while I am driving and pop the paci back in his mouth...cause that's safe}, and keep him fed it will be an enjoyable trip.

I thought about giving him some tylenol to help his sleep a little more, but just can't make myself do it. Drugging my child is a definite no-no in my book {unless he is actually sick}. Plus tylenol doesn't make him sleep that much longer. But thanks to everyone who's already suggested it...

Oh - and then I'm going to turn around and come home on Sunday.

Who wishes they were making that trip..... LOL!

Any one have any ideas on how to make it a little more enjoyable?

If you could do it near bedtime that makes it easier..... but I dont know if that is an option for you? Good luck mama. Endless amount of toys on the front seat to pass back to him!
