Hi Kristi,

How about adding some soothing sensory elements to the carseat. A lap snake or weighted blanket, a chewy tube and a variety of fidgets may be enough appropriate stimulation to keep him from behaving inappropriately. Elliott (who is an only) loves going places, but the road noise, car seat, and radio can be his ungluing. Using a personal music device helps (hey, that ipod shuffle was mine!) and he has a box of various fidgets to use. He also enjoys drawing in the car--occupying his hands and mind seems to help him deal with the discomfort he feels. Sounds like your guy is having a tougher time than Elliott ever did, but I will say that things were worse for Elliott when he was younger. Good Luck!
