We just traveled to Sevierville, Tenn from Perrysburg, Oh. It would usually take us 8 hours, well with our 2 month old it took us 11 hours. He was very impatient. The longest we drove without stopping was 2 and half hours. With our 3 yr old we have a portable DVD and that is such a life saver with her. Of course she has "always" been a great traveler. I don't think there is much you can do cause they are so limited on what's entertaining to them. I sat back with him and had rattling toys, flashing light toys, bright colors, music and lots of facial expressions. The music and facials were the most entertaining to him.
