Our child is nearly 14 months old. In two weeks, we're planning to travel with him on an Amtrak train to visit the in-laws about 350 miles away.
This is our first time travelling on a train, and our plan originally was to have him ride in his stroller for the trip - but my co-workers have suggested that he may be required to be in a child car seat during the trip.
I've tried to find information on Amtrak's website regarding regulations, but all I can find is information in child traveler discounts.
What should I expect when traveling with a 1-year old on an Amtrak train?
To provide some more context - the trip is from Central New York to Southern Maryland - it's about 2 hours from Central New York to New York City, an hour layover, and about 3 hours from New York to our final destination. We're planning of course to bring food, snacks, water, diapers, and toys.
