  • Kaylee went through a phase like that....she grew out of it pretty quick. No worries, I think its pretty normal....but try some of those toys that hang from the carseat handle that will keep her attention for a while.

  • My dd hates riding in the car, so if I need to somewhere I time it with nap time. Sleeping is the only time she is content in her carseat.

  • Maybe she doesn't like how reclined the infant seat is? If she has good head control, you can put her into a rear facing convertible seat a little more upright. My son has reflux, and he screamed until I put him more upright. If you need any suggestions on new seats or any other questions, please feel free to pm me.

  • My 14 month old still despises her carseat. She isn't fond of the stroller either. I just have to suck it up strap her in and go.

  • AM Radio static.... kind of annoying, but better than hearing my baby cry! Things were slightly better when we moved from an infant seat to a RF convertible seat.
