Has anyone taken a long road trip with their LO in tow? I am planning to go home, which is about 7 and a half hours. That is me and my husband by ourselves and minimal stops. I am planning it for the fall, so LO will be a little over a year. Seems like so long for him to sit for. Their closest airport is 1.5 hours away and no direct flights.
So so far I have thought about just flying even though it will take just as long with layovers and driving (at least he won't be stuck in a car seat all day), splitting the trip in half both up and back and staying in a hotel, just stopping multiple times and taking as long as it takes to get there in a day... I just picture him being miserable and screaming the whole way or fussy and bored. Anyone take a long trip and find out it is not so bad??
