Does she seem sweaty when you take her out? I've heard that some babies get overheated in car seats. On one of the other boards, a lady bought a car seat liner that wicks away moisture and keeps the baby cool, which seemed to help.

Some things that work for us: rolling the windows down, hanging a little jangly toy from the handle, keeping the binky close in case she starts to freak.

One time on my way to my mom and dad's house, Claire started fussing when we were about 15 minutes out. I figured I'd just drive quickly, and she would fuss a little but get over it. BOY was I wrong. By the time we got there, she'd lost her voice from screaming so loud. She was shaking, hiccuping, screaming bloody murder. I felt so terrible, I was in tears too! She's not the type of baby to settle down once she gets going. It took her about 15 minutes of soothing to get her to come down from that freak-fest...we were both a bit traumatized.

Luckily, that's only happened once, but I learned my lesson!!
