  • Not nowadays because one is 5 and one is 2 but when they were babies we sometimes did. DD used to get mad and cry when we would come to a stop sign lol. It worked well though, especially if one parent rides in the back and offers a bottle or paci. I don't think babies like riding in the back alone. To this day dd(2 yrs) tells dh to go when the light turns green lol. She also argues that the cows near our house are goats lol.

  • Something I used to do was to set their car seat/ or something they are safe to sleep in on an active dryer. It is soothing and helps them go to sleep without having to drive them around. :-) Have fun !!

  • No - I'm very against using any type of sleep prop (rocking, nursing to sleep, etc.), but that's just me.

  • while our daughter was teething really bad we had too my hubby would drive for hours just so she could get some sleep! then he bought this big belt thing and we strap her car seat to the top of the dryer and turn it on she loved that and it saved gas! he would make a bed in the laundry room and sleep in there with her it was really cute! sleep deprived parents will try anything to help a baby sleep! i say do whatever works! she only needed it for a few weeks now she is back in the crib!
