What do you all do if your baby HATES the car seat?
I feel so bad, she cries and cries. She starts off trying not to cries, she whimpers like she is trying to be brave but eventually it turns to crying, then screaming meltdown (where I pull over and nurse her calm before continuing on)!
I've hung toys and her blankey in the seat...I've started using the sun shade down in front of her blocking out the view of back window in case she is over stimulated. But, she hates the car. I got children's cd's and play the music and sing to her, nope.
If my husband is in car with us he drives and I sit in back and she is usually fine, if she fusses I can distract her but I need to drive without my husband during the week!
We plan to buy a convertible car seat soon and hope that the switch will make her happy...but if it doesn't what do I do?
She is not used to crying so I think once she starts when I don't respond she starts to freak out because I am nearby and not responding to her cries. I'm pretty sure this is distressing for her! She is soooooo easy going for everything else!
