The first time taking your baby for a car ride is always the hardest, but soon, with practice, you’ll be an old pro.
n Sun protection — “Help protect your sweet baby’s eyes during road trips by hanging sun protection shades in the rear windows of your car. They’re sure to make the ride more comfortable for your little one by providing shade and sheltering your infant’s eyes from the harsh sun,” says blogger Erin Loechner of DesignForMinikind.com.
n Music stimulation — Music helps children develop linguistic and motor skills as they sing along with nursery rhymes, and other infant songs. Bring along a CD or two of your baby’s favorite tunes and sing along for miles.
