Hello everyone...Just looking on epinions on driving at night with a toddler. We leave for the Beach middle of August.. My youngest will be 15 months at that time. We are making the 15 hour drive from upstate NY. we are now seriously thinking of leaving around 8:00pm at night so my daughter can sleep all night, and we can make the beach in one shot, instead of leaving in the morning, and stoping at hotel halfway down..we will be leaving on a Sunday night, so should beat DC traffic.
Some questions, Has anyone else traveled all night with a young one? and if so, how was the experience with the car seat? Im worried that she wont be able to sleep comfotable for long sitting up, and I dont want to drive for two hours, then have to find motel(I will if it bothers her). Do kids that age normally sleep well all night in cars? or am I better off just leaving in the morning and doing trip in two days? Last question, as we usually do the 81 route to virginia, if I leave at night, I rather drive the Jersey way down and 95 thru DC, as more stops along that route then the 81 route at night, how is this route at night? All epinions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Pete
