Thank you for this info! I'm glad our DDC/PR has our own car seat tech as a member

They also have a cooling pad that you can freeze and set inside the house before you leave... then when the baby goes in the seat you remove the frozen pack. That's okay right? We keep our infant carrier inside due to the heat as well.

We went straight to the convertible and Arthur loves it. It may just be that she doesn't like being in the car for whatever reason, but you'll need the convertible at some point in the future anyways, so there is no harm in trying it out. If you find that there isn't anything you can do to make her happy, please keep in mind that you are doing what is safest for her and it's a necessary evil every time you get in the car.

I would encourage you not to purchase or use any special covers etc that are not directly from the manufacturer of YOUR car seat. Things like toys and covers have not been crash tested and could be hazardous in a collision. Time of day, length of car ride, the clothing she's in, music etc may all be altered to give yourself the best trip possible.
