Below you will find some great hints and tips to help you to prepare for a road trip with little ones. Young babies If you have a very young baby, then you have to plan your journey carefully; for the first few months of a baby’s life, milk is the only thing on the menu! For some parents this will mean a complicated routine of sterilising bottles and making formula.
