Kelly,

We have the same problem. I hope someone has figured this one out and will post! It makes going into stores a problem b/c Bella gets so worked up, she cries even after she is out of the car! Then she wails the whole time I am trying to get groceries,,,people look at me like I am a horrible mother!

Joey didn't like it for the first few weeks, he hated his carseat completley.

Same here! Well, Elijah does eventually fall asleep after I hold pacifier for him for 5 mins or so... he of course wakes up as soon as we stop at the traffic light, ugh... My DD was the same way... Just my kind of luck, I guess! LOL!

Oh, and Elijah's ped recommended putting him in a car seat on top of a working dryer when he's restless (Elijah, not dryer :) Doesn't work... What else... Vacuum! Nope, doesn't work either! So far, we haven't found anything(except for wearing Elijah in a sling or wrap) that works at least 90% of the time. Talk about high maintenance baby!

Olya :)

My little one does great when someone is in the backseat with him as long as he's fed and clean. If he's asleep and alone we do well... but as soon as he wakes up I have about five minutes until he starts screaming. Sometimes he'll quiet down if we get on the freeway and we're moving... otherwise he just scrreams. I wish I had a good solution. I think once he can play with toys in his seat, things might be better.

Amelia's like that - not a big fan of the car. One thing that helps her, is when her big brother is back there riding next to her (I think she just doesn't want to be alone). Also, sometimes a pacifier helps (though she generally doesn't take one). Something I haven't tried, but I've heard works is to set your radio to a station that plays static - something about the white noise is suppose to calm them down (this is an in general thing). Good luck!!
