I wish I could offer you advice on the car crying. Unfortunately, I can't because ds did the same thing. Evnetually, he just outgrew it. Sometimes, distraction would help as he got a little older but putting him in the car seat was often a two person job because he would fight so hard. When he gets a little bigger, I found snacks were a good way to calm him down. If I gave him a banana or some crackers, he would be intent on eating and not thinking about being strapped in. Obviously, that doesn't help you yet because your ds is too little for solids. Now that my ds is forward facing (at 19 months) the carseat is less of a struggle. I don't know if turning him made the difference or just the fact that he was getting older. Good luck

The car seat problem is interesting, but I have to say that we did not go around with our dd much when she was small because she did not like the car seat. Why should I force her to sit there when she does not like it? But then we live downtown in walking distance of everything we need and I gather from reading these posts that many people do not live in that setting and did not have the option of just walking instead of driving on your errands.

What all of the reserach that I read showed was that people who did not learn to fall asleep on their own as children had a higher risk of problems with insomnia as adults. Now, this is only a risk. It is not an absolute cause and effect.
The reserach also showed that the earlier one learned to fall asleep on one's own, the better the chance of developing better sleep habits later on. And again this just increased the odds, didn't gurantee anything.
|I have been in this situation and yes I did go on welfare and no I did not let my children cry it out --ever. In fact feeling my sleeping toddler snuggling next to me nursing happily, and then my infant later on were some of the only things keeping me going in my completely hectic, upsidedown life. not all of us are like how you describe|
