Any tips on how to make a child like the car? My seven month old is in the car for five minutes and starts crying, and wants to get put her car seat.

She doesn't like being restrained, she always wants to be free and crawl around. But it's been going on since she was around three months old. I've tried toys, music, singing, in-car stories, radio.

I feel like I've tried everything but she doesn't play ball. If she's tired she will just go to sleep quite happily but I can't always plan to go out when she needs a nap.

If anyone has any tips or what worked for them please throw them my way.

My son was very similar, plus I think he gets a little car sick. He still doesn’t love the car but one of my favourite things I’ve found that works pretty well is a Brica Cruisin' Baby In-Sight Car Mirror.

It has lights and music, and for whatever reason he loves it. There are wake settings and sleep settings so you can tailor it to their state. I don’t know if it’ll help you but figured I’d share!
