    Straight up would not be doing that at all. I can't believe it's even expected of you.

    Totally unreasonable for them to even ask! Absolutely not worth going. We're only 3.5hrs from capital and I'd be reluctant to do that for a flying visit with a baby, let alone one who dislikes the car.

    Hell to the no! Is the intended trip with dh, or completely on your own? If on your own, it is so dangerous for a sleep deprived mum with a young bub to drive that amount of hours. Your dh needs to man up and put his baby and his own family first! Show him this thread & how vehemently opposed everyone is, and then maybe he will understand. Totally unreasonable.

    Default Is it reasonable...?

    Initially it was me because I 'have family in the area' but when I said no because she has needles it's changed to a flying trip with him driving. It's okay for him to say he'll drive but I'm the one who'll have to settle bub and I'm tired as it is let alone intentionally disrupting her so her grandmother can 'give her cuddles' especially after needles

    I'm so glad I'm not being b!tchy about thinking NO WAY but just needed some reassurance. We have done a couple of long trips to see my family but we stayed for over a week both times which, to me, makes it worth it. As a pp has mentioned, it took a little while for her to adjust once we were home. I just keep thinking-it's okay for them, they don't have to soothe/calm her during/after the trip and for what? So you can say you seen her first? So you can put pics up on fb? Nooooo!

    From a uk baby care page (not sure if I'm allowed to name or link on here):
    While your baby is young, it's best not to take him out in the car too often, or for long journeys. Don't use the seat as a place for your baby to sleep at other times. Being in a semi-upright position for long periods may place a strain on your baby's developing spine.

    No way. Especially if it's not a necessity and just a social visit. My eye is twitchy just thinking about travelling with a young baby that doesn't like the car for that long

    F**k that. My parents are 30min away, and when I take my bub to their place, we stay for a minimum of 3 nights. I wouldn't be driving 30minutes just to see them for an hour, let alone 7hours (definitely more)
