I just try to stay calm and cool and have the motto..."we'll get there when we get there." It took us 14 hours to do a 11 hour trip in June. We all lived and arrived in one piece :-) Just relax as much as possible. You can do it!
Ditto. With a baby or toddler it will take us about 11-12 hours to do what was once a 8.5-9 hour drive. Just plan for a longer trip. I thought bottle-feeding would help us but it really didn't. It turned out to just be more stuff to pack. I have done the leaning over the seat to nurse, but more as a "falling asleep" helper, not when they were needing to nurse due to hunger.
