HaHa...so glad to know that I am not the only one! I guess we gotta do what we gotta do when we have screaming babies ;)

Wendy, I can't tell you the number of times that I've also *flashed* other drivers taking care of the screaming baby ... ugh!!! That's why we just don't go anywhere by car.

My oldest was a terrible car rider...this is probably TMI but I specifically remember coming home from a trip to Wisconsin and we had just stopped and I had nursed him, 5 minutes after we were back on the road...SCREAMING...I was literally on my knees leaning over his car seat nursing him until he fell asleep. What an interesting view that must have been for passing motorists!;) Good luck!!

Just wanted to wish you luck and tell you to hang in there Sarina went through periods where she hated the carseat and like you said its one of those absolute no negotiables. Hopefully its just a stage he will outgrow soon, good luck.

Oh, yes. We dreaded every car trip with Gabe, from 10 minutes to 2 hours, because we knew we'd be listening to him scream the entire time. I always laughed when I read in books that I should drive around with him if he was fussy, and that would calm him down--as if! He did finally outgrow it at about a year, and has gotten progressively better with time. (Especially now that he's forward-facing and can see all of the fun stuff out there!)

Jana,

I'm sorry to say that Henry still hates his car seat. The longest car ride we've ever taken was 1 hour and that was sometimes difficult.

In fact, given his absolute detestation of his car seat AND his preemieness (he gets sick easily), we took a cruise from NY to Germany when we moved overseas.

Good luck!!!!!

P.S. We finally found a cd that had a child laughing on it and some music ... and then some german children's music that would work when he would start screaming!!!

Xander screams his head off everytime we put him in the carseat. Does anyone else's baby detest the carseat? I hope he outgrows it because it's one of those non-negotiables! [:)]
