My husband and I recently got back from a trip to Chicago (which is about nine and a half hours away by car). We had gone there as one of my best friends lives there with her family, and we wanted a 'safe place' for our first trip. What do I mean by safe place? A place where everyone would understand that we have a baby who is a crappy sleeper with food intolerances, and who would welcome being flexible with our activities as they also have a young one (though their little girl is a little more than a year older than Finnley).
I am happy to report that the trip was a success! We got there in one piece! We got home! We went to the aquarium and the zoo! That's two major outings!!! I thought I would pass along my limited words of wisdom as tips for your first road trip with baby.
Where was your first trip as a family? What did you do? Any tips for flying with a baby (our next adventure)?
I love to cook, entertain, craft and create - all while being a wife, friend, daughter and a mom to a little boy.
