The dreaded car/car seat

Posted by   + Show Post
My dd will be 5 mos on the 30th and STILL screams bloody murder in the car. The whole entire ride. I figure shed be used to it by now. I've tried everything- put a shirt w my scent back w her, toys, mirror, light up mirror, music, paci, -- she's fine if I'm back w her giving her a bottle. But obv I can't do that when I have to drive! I was thinking maybe cuz the first month of her life she was in the nicu so never was in a car. My dd#1 loved the car. What do I do!??? It drives me crazy!! When should this pass?

How does the trade in sale work? I have a swing and cradle ds is too big for now and need a play pen

Mine was like this. He got better (not COMPLETELY but a lot better) when we switched to a convertible around six months. Babies-R-Us is having their trade-in sale right now... :)

You take old stuff and get a discount on new stuff. I am not sure of the deets, but apparently it's worth looking into... :)

 You can skip the infant seat and go right for the convertible seat.

My dd did that still does some time but it seems to be better now that I have her rear facing in a convertible seat. Maybe try a new seat for your baby?

one for one

if you bring in two items, then you get a discount on two items, unfortunately you cannot combine items

I agree with the other ladies I would switch her to a convertible and see if that makes a difference.  My dd was the same way and then we switched her to her convertible and she started to love car rides.

What type of a seat is she in? Is she still in an infant carrier? If so, try switching to a convertible seat. My oldest loved the car, my youngest did the same thing as your DD. I moved him to a convertible seat between 4 and 5 months old and that made a big difference.

my daughter hates her infant seat. I am considering getting this carseat sometime in April. SHe will be about seven months. I wish we never would have even gotten the infant carrier. it was because dh wanted somethin gto carry her into stores with although I had a ring sling and a mei tai. he should have listened to me lol- she never ever rides in the thing.
