In brief: Patience

Journey with baby before his longest nap, or evening just before his nighttime sleeping stretch.
Replicate home schedule of feeding & napping, without being a slave to routine. If you're traveling through time zones, anticipate baby will likely have restless sleep or crankiness. Keep yourself rested & well fed. Traveling with baby is tiring. Accept help when offered. Find joy in the small moments.

In brief: Consider & distance

Driving or flying? For air travel be sure to consult your pcp for travel precautions if an international destination, inform airline for special provisions for baby on board.
With changes in altitude provide baby with something to suck to prevent ear discomfort. Break up long journeys to allow for rest in between. Get some rest / bring fun items for a healthy diversion if the journey gets tedious.
