We Made It! Road Trip Travel with an Infant

We made it to Maine! Well, we made it to Maine a while back, but settling in has taken some time. The drive went better then I expected. X slept most of each 12 hour travel day. Apparently his limit on travel is 11 hours and 40 minutes though because both days he cried for the last 20 minutes. Luckily we were able to stop in Baltimore and stay with family, which was almost exactly half way. I stopped 3 times each day, X needing to eat and the car needing gas seemed to coincide nicely. The pets did well also. My poor pup sleeps sprawled out but was only allotted the front passenger seat (as every other nook and cranny was stuffed with shoes or baby gear) and thus was never really able to settle in. I’m pretty sure he slept for 2 days straight once we arrived in Maine.
I managed to pack fairly well, having plenty of diapers and wipes, snacks, water, etc easily accessible. My big mistake was not packing a baby carrier that I could get too. Going to the bathroom in a truck stop while holding an 18 lb infant was a skill I never dreamed I would master.
