carseat!

So this weekend babies r us has britax carseats 20% off. My mother in law offered to buy him his so heck yeah! he was still in his infant carrier because its weight limit is 35 lbs. He could still stay in there but i thought changing it up would solve the problem of him hating the car. So far not so much. Will he ever get over it? how do i fix this???

He will probably get over it as he gets older. I remember DS1 enjoying the carseat much more after he was able to be foward facing. Odin only tolerates it now because his older brother entertains him from the 3rd row seats in our van. In a few months when you can go foward facing I bet he will be much happier.

Same solution as the shower thing ... toys ... lots and lots of toys.

Ronin is pretty good in the car, but he always has lots of toys and if that doesn't work I break out the big guns, his water bottle.

Oh yes, the water bottle. If the car ride is especially long, I will throw her MY water bottle. Instant silence!

OMG my child is obsessed with water bottles!!! Glad to hear that it's normal. Lol
Aiden likes to use car rides to practice new noises as loudly as possible. Toys only entertain for about 30 seconds each and then they go flying. A water bottle? 15 minutes of silence! Golden. Thankfully DS can't fight the motion trying to put him to sleep for too terribly long. Any car ride over 30 minutes will put him to sleep!
