Are you nervous to drive alone with a baby?
As one young parent shares: "Starting soon I'm going to be taking several short road trips alone with my child. Before having kids, I found myself in a few accidents that were my fault--never have been hurt but did some damage to the car. I haven't been driving in the city (where I find drivers far crazier than in other cities) in several years and not since having my child. I'm nervous about driving with them, especially because they'll be in the back seat and I'll want to glance back if they're crying. Anyone else have nerves about driving with babies? Have good tips to get over it?"
