Kody does ok with the carseat now, but I have to time it right. If he's cranky going in, he's just going to get more cranky as time goes on, so I usually try to put him to sleep right before we leave. I always bring a bottle so Ethan (big brother) can pop it in on the way to where we're going if I need him to. That usually keeps Kody busy long enough to keep the backseat quiet.

When Ethan was a baby, he absolutely hated his carseat too, and would scream the whole way from Homer to Anchor Point (when we lived in Alaska). About 19 miles but it felt like FOREVER. I feel for you. He did grow out of it though and came to like the carseat eventually. He preferred being forward facing so we actually turned him a teensy bit ahead of schedule, hoping it would give him more to look at. He did like that. And the carseat toys help too.
