My son hates to ride in the car, any ideas to keep him from crying?

I keep a bag of toys in the car that i pass to him to try and keep him entertained but no matter what, after about 15 minutes, he is done with them all. He gets really upset and cries. We have already gotten him a car seat for bigger boys, so we know its not that the car seat isn't comfortable. Any ideas to help out are greatly appreciated!

  • My grandson did the same thing. His parents just had to tough it out. He is starting to grow out of it (8months old). I read that it's more common than people think. Sorry this isn't much help. GL
