5 Ways to Prepare Before Taking a Road Trip with a Baby

Riding in the car is something that has taken some getting used to for my kids. We lived in the city for so long without a car that most of our time was spent taking the subway, bus, and every once in a while, a taxi.

When we moved to the suburbs and bought a car, Macks did not like it at all. Every time that we put him in the car, he would just cry. He didn’t like being confined at all. While most babies are calm and usually fall asleep as soon as they get in the car, Macks would do the exact opposite.

His dislike for the car made it even more nerve-wracking for me when we decided to take a road trip this summer from our home in Connecticut to our family’s home in Kentucky. A 12-hour car ride (which is more like 15 hours with three kids) was definitely going to be a learning experience for both me and Macks. We made it to our destination with just a few hiccups, but there was definitely a lot that I learned along the way.

8 Tips for Visiting Disney World with a Baby or Toddler

We just got back last week from taking our 19-month-old to Disney World. We live in Miami, so fortunately it’s just a quick 3-hour drive. The first time we took our little one to Disney, he was just 11 months old. It was so amazing to see the difference in how much more alert he was this time. Anytime he would spot Mickey at the park, he would yell “Mickey, Mickey!” and his eyes would light up. We also took our 3-year-old niece, who had a blast.

Here are a few tips we picked up along the way, in case you are planning your own trip to Disney World (or if you’re in California — Disneyland).
