It depends on how far we are from our destination. We rarely go anywhere further than 10-15 minutes away, so I just shush him from the drivers seat. If SO is in the car, he reaches back and finds his paci and gives it to him.
Mostly I just sing or talk to him. Rory has yet to fuss in the car. Alex screamed like a banshee no matter what. Eventually we just turned the radio up real loud and rolled down the windows to drown him out. If it was close to a feeding and we had more than a half an hour to our destination we would pull over into a parking lot so that I could feed him.
'Scuse the bad typing, please. 'Breast is Best' but not when browsing the internet!
If it is time to eat and more than 20ish minfrom home, i pull over to feed him. Bodhi rarely fusses though. bourne screamed his head off for 12.25 months so often we had to just let him scream. It was miserble.
Like others it depends on how far we are from where we are going. Henry gets fussy at first but calms down once we get going. Abri was a screamer for about 6 months too and there was nothing that calmed her down.
most times just let her scream
Emerson seems to dislike her car/carseat
its terrible and i feel bad for DS when hes in the car
unless shes still asleep when putting her in the cat its pretty much a guarantee a cry/scream fest
can't wait to go to my in-laws 3 hours away =(
We've only taken him somewhere in the car a couple of times but for the most part, Henry doesn't mind his car seat much. He fusses a bit but usually falls asleep. I make sure to feed him right before we go anywhere and we're never in the car for long so we just shush him or have DD sing him a song until we get there.
Eliza Rose, born 6/9/10 ...and getting a little brother for her birthday! Baby Henry Wilder, due 6/7/13
Ive never been in the car with Leif by myself. There is always another child in the back that will take care of him. However, with my first, I really didn't do anything. If she didnt have the "Im hurt" cry, then I just let her cry it out. I will do the same with Leif if I ever drive without anyone else in the car.
McKinley hates her carseat. It is truly the only thing that upsets her (aside from being hungry). We don't ever go anywhere more than 10-15min away so when she starts screaming, I just let her. If Jaleigh is in the car, she gives her the paci but a lot of times she is so ticked that she won't take it.
