I have an 4 1/2 month old baby boy and just last week he's decided he's going to cry whenever he's in the car. Moving or stopped, it doesn't matter - he keeps crying. But it's not the car seat itself because he's fine once I move him out of the car so nothing is hurting him or causing him discomfort with the car seat (as far as I can tell anyway). I've tried everything - made sure he wasn't hungry, made sure his diaper was dry, gave him familar toys, gave him new toys, took away all toys (I thought maybe over-stimulation?), sang to him, talked to him, put on different kinds of music, sat in the back with him when possible, tried a paci (he wouldn't take it), tried the teething raspberry (that worked one time and he feel asleep but it didn't work the next time I tried it). I am out of ideas. I have to take my older son to preschool which is a half hour drive each way and the crying is really making me crazy. I just don't know how to help him and it causes my heart distress to hear it. He will cry the entire time in the car. Some days he's better and will just make complaining noises for 15 minutes and than all out yell, but usually he just all out yells. Does anyone have any ideas for me or words of wisdom? Is this just a phase? (I don't remember it happeneing with my first son). Help PLEASE!!!!
