I agree with other posters.
Also, do you think part of it is that she can't see you once she is in there? If there is someone else who can drive, let them drive and sit in the back with your baby.
If that is not an option, can you get one of those soft car mirrors so she can see you?
Otherwise, all you can do is smile and play happy as you put her in there, I agree that baby will sense you think the carseat is a negative thing, and will feed off of that.
DD hated the seat for a long time, but now is at an age where we can talk about how safe it is and she loves to say that her and her dolly are safe, lol.
Good luck hun!
Oh, and you can play music, or for a while DD LOVED the static between stations and would quiet down :P
