  • Get her used to the car seat out of the car. Try a pacifire if you haven't already. Talk to her in a calm voice while in the car. Just a few ideas.

  • Put a mirror on the back of the seat so she can look at herself. There are some that play music and have lights. Sometimes, it just takes babies awhile to get used to the car. My son loved it, whereas my daughter hated it until she was about 3 months old.

  • Sounds really weird, but my 3 month old daughter loves really loud music. She especially likes Techno music. I know weird. We tried, nice soft classical or lullabys, but she only likes dance music with strong bass. When we turn it down, she cries.
