Does or did anyone else's child hate car rides? Jadyn screams from the time she goes in the car seat until the time we take her out! What the heck? I thought babies were supposed to love car rides, well not this one. If anyone else's kid did this, how long did it take to outgrow?

Try getting bugs on board for the infant car seat. Here is a link to show you what I mean:

Some babies feel lonely and scared facing to the rear back there. The bugs help to keep them company and give them something to look at! Justin loved them and now, at 6 months, he plays with them the whole time he is back there.

I put one of those mirrors back there, it is big and outlined in blue and there is a remote control so that you can make it play music and light up.

Lily loves it plus I can keep an eye on what is happening with her.

I see the link queen gave you some great ideas. Hahahaha.
Mikey always slept in the car. payton just sits there. I am sure it doesn't help that they are all budnled and can't move. We are almost to spring ladies. we can do it. We are almost done with bundling these children up and then carrying them as if they didn't way enough to begin with. We are almost done with these cold and this cabin fever. WE CAN DO IT!!!!

My son was screaming alot in the car too...turns out he was just really hot!! I stopped bundling him up so much, waiting to put on his hat and zip up his suit until right before I get him out of the car, and now he is fine. So maybe Jadyn is just hot! Once Jake stopped crying in the car I couldn't believe the answer was so simple.

We never had any problems with Lyric, i sat in the back seat with her all the time when we went anywhere tho, so that may have helped. Try that if you dont already, also a shade for the windo if its sunny ;)

mykenzi has gotten now to where sh starts screaming a few minutes after we get going in the car. i found out that her fleece snow suit was too hot, so now, i just put her in her seat, put a recieving blanket over her feet and bottom half and tuck it in, then put the cover on her carrier, and then a blanket over that till we get going.. once in the car, the cover comes half way off, and the top blanket comes all the way off until we get where we are going.
