I thought when i went car seat shopping the lady said bubs couldnt be in the capsule/seat for more then 2 hours at a time at a young age...maybe use that as an 'out' and she will just have to wait. I dont think your being unreasonable at all.

Um in no way is 7hrs a reasonable amount of time to travel with such a young baby and for such a short period.
Who cares if MIL is going to be in the same state if she's going to be a min 7hr drive away.
Plus the cost for you guys on petrol for that round trip is ridiculous

We travelled 7 hours in one day round trip last year and also attended two functions in searing heat (I was also pregnant at the time). We were all smashed for a couple of days post this. Glad you have decided to stay put - so unsafe travelling that long by yourself.
We tend to usually have a rule of nothing under three days stay elsewhere warrants travelling with the kids more than a couple of hours to get there. We regularly are happy to do 1 hour trips away somewhere for the day and an hour back home again, but once it starts to creep into 3-8 hours away, then we need to make it worth our while to pack and unpack that much stuff!

I would feel uncomfortable driving that far with a bub (Infact even by myself)... I'd feel very nervous and scared stopping on the side of the road to feed with nobody else around....

No way I'd be driving that far either, its not fair on you or bub.
I have regularly done 3hr each way trips with both kids, from as young as 4wks to visit my elderly nan but that is a BIG difference to 7hrs. I'm talking 3hrs without kids, one trip with dd when she was very little took 5hrs to get home, I kid you not. Feed, change, feed some more, oh another dirty nappy? Then scream because they've had enough of the car, b00b again hoping that it will settle them...rinse and repeat
Stick by your guns hun
