1. Does your baby like being in his/her car seat? JR loves his car seat
2. What kind of car seat do u have? We skipped the infant bucket and went straight to a convertable, a Graco MyRide 65. It rear faces to 40 pounds and forward faces to 65 pounds.
3. What's the longest baby has been in the car and what for? We live in the boonies and it's a minimum 45 minute car ride to the nearest town and a trip to town is a full day experience because you grocery shop (3 or 4 stores), go to Wal Mart, Target, Sams Club, Home Depot/Lowes (or both!)... The list never ends! So JR is in and out of his car seat a bunch and around town for at least 6 or 7 hours!
4. Any long(ish) car trips coming up? How do u think it will go? We're planning to go to California for JR's 100 day celebration because it's the same time as my neice's 1st birthday. They are both a big deal in Korean culture and we don't want the grandparents to have to choose which celebration to come to! That will be about a 12 hour trip (not counting stops) and should be fine. He won't need much, just diapers, clothes, and me! DD, on the other hand, needs half of the house to go on a trip (toys, clothes, books, snacks, drinks, music, movies to watch...)

She hates being put into it, but once she's strapped in and the car is moving, she loves it.

2. What kind of car seat do u have?

Chicco KeyFit 30

3. What's the longest baby has been in the car and what for?

About an hour when we drove to a restaurant to meet some friends.

3. Any long(ish) car trips coming up? How do u think it will go?


We have a two hour car ride in August from the Denver airport to a dude ranch...though I'm far more nervous about the plane part than the car part. At least we can pull the car over if there's a problem!

Does your baby like being in his/her car seat?

My baby HATES being in the car seat with a passion. Shes a little happier if the car is moving, but not much. Sometimes she will scream the entire time we are in the car. I've tried loosening the straps a bit, but a snuzzler thing to make it more cozy, etc.

2. What kind of car seat do u have? Graco


3. What's the longest baby has been in the car and what for?

probably an hour at most and that was to her doctors apptment. she won't tolerate very much, she can cry a looong time I've figured out

3. Any long(ish) car trips coming up? How do u think it will go?

No I'm not brave enough with her screaming in the car .

1. Does your baby like being in his/her car seat?
She doesn't like being put into it initially, but once we start moving (either carrying her, pushing the stroller after the car seat clicks into it, or the car moves) she's fine.

2. What kind of car seat do u have?
Right now a Graco Snug Ride that came with her travel system. But once she becomes too heavy to carry in that car seat, we'll switch her to the Graco My Ride 65 seat we got for her.


3. What's the longest baby has been in the car and what for?
She's been in the car while it's moving for about an hour as we traveled to Jacksonville. She's gone longer in the seat while we're hanging out over at our next door neighbor's house...she'll sleep or hang out in the seat for a couple of hours.

3. Any long(ish) car trips coming up? How do u think it will go?
We will be driving from Georgia to NY the first week in July. Since DH has to check in at work on the day we leave, we can't leave at 4 am like we usually do, so it will likely be a two day trip. I'm not entirely sure how it will go, but I'm praying it will go smoothly!

1. Does your baby like being in his/her car seat? She loves it
2. What kind of car seat do u have? Currently, she's using Ava's Myride 65. Ava's using the one from MIL's car. I have a Snugride for Aria, but a mouse chewed through the styrofoam, so I'm waiting for the styrofoam and foam pad replacement from Graco.
3. What's the longest baby has been in the car and what for? Probably the ride home from the hospital, it was about a half hour drive.
3. Any long(ish) car trips coming up? How do u think it will go? We've got a baby shower coming up on Sunday, about an hour away. I think it'll be just fine.

At times, he is getting better with it. Once he is in and we get moving, he sleeps.

2. What kind of car seat do u have? Chicco Keyfit 30

3. What's the longest baby has been in the car and what for?As a PP said we live in the sticks. It is a half hour ride just to get into town. So, when we are grocery shopping etc he is in there for awhile. If Mike is with me, I will typically take him out when we get to a store if we are going to be in there for awhile.

3. Any long(ish) car trips coming up? How do u think it will go?
nope
