Our 12 month old baby has never liked the car...though she is much better than when she was an infant. She has periods where she can entertain herself but then she begins fussing...I put music on, sing to her, etc, and that helps somewhat. She is in the Britax car seat and since she's not yet 20 lbs, it's still rear-facing. Maybe once it's forward facing, she'll be happier. She also has never enjoyed being in the stroller and it's a matter of minutes before she wants to be held. I'm not sure whether she isn't comfortable, or if she just doesn't like being restrained.
So, for all the moms out there who also have a baby like this, how do you manage? I find that outings like the mall or park become stressful because she wants to be held, and car rides are not fun. I embrace my baby's temperament but these two issues are frustrating and I'm wondering when she'll grow out of them. Anyone else been there?
