Have you ever driven your little one around in hopes they'd stop crying/fall asleep?

 Yes, I have for over 30 miles. It did, but when I tried to get him out the carseat he woke up. :/

No, I have never had to do this.

Nope.

I have put them in a wrap to get them to fall asleep, but I've never had to put them in the car and drive around for the purpose of having them sleep.

We don't own a car/drive, so nope..lol.  Hubby and I have taken turns walking around with our son, bouncing him while he lays on our chest, etc, when he is tired and we are in a public place.  Otherwise he's always been pretty good about sleeping at home.

No. I considered it a few times when ds4 was a baby but I didn't wanted it to become a "thing".

With my older two I did. Most of the time it worked. My youngest I haven't needed to do it at all.

Nope. My kid screams in the car like I'm murdering him, so not my first choice... :)

Apparently, it worked for my parents and me... I was a colicky kid. :p

Both of my girls have fallen asleep while riding in the car but never drove around for the purpose of making them fall asleep
