Traveling with 2 month old baby

Good day

My family and I are planning on take a holiday trip on the 24 March 2011 till 28March 2011 from Johannesburg to Durban with our 3 year old son and 2 months old daughter (Will be turning 2 months on 21/03/2011). What I would like to know is would it be a wise move traveling with her at such a young age and what can be advised regarding this.

It is usually advised that children younger than 3 months should not travel for long distances unless it is really necessary.This can often upset their normal routine quite considerably.
