#1: Get a comfortable car seat. Something that fits the baby well, fits your car well and is easy for you to put the baby in without smashing them.

#2: Make sure you equip your vehicle so the baby can self-entertain. Get some clip-on toys that vibrate or jiggle, they’ll keep the baby from getting fussy while you’re driving.

#3: Always be prepared with a fresh diaper and change of clothes. Almost nothing makes a baby more upset than sitting in wet clothes. Being prepared for an emergency diaper changing stop is an easy way to remove the stress from the situation.

#4: Get a sunscreen for the rear windows. Even if your windows are tinted from the factory, it’s a good idea to invest in a sunscreen. This will help the baby sleep, keep the rear seat cooler on hot summer days and it will help protect the baby’s skin and eyes from the sun’s rays.

#5: Get a good safety kit. Make sure to have jumper cables, gloves, flares and a flashlight on hand for emergencies. Hopefully you’ll never need to use anything out of a kit like this, but it’s invaluable if you do. Everyone should have one of these in their trunk.

Happy Motoring !
