My son is 17 m old and has never liked going in the car since day one. He was traumatized at the NICU when they made him do his car seat test and wouldn't allow me to take him out even though he was frantic. It's been a constant struggle and he's had good days until recently we took him on a 4 hour trip and he was 30 mins in and was "all done". I know a lot of you are probably against it and don't say I am a bad person for doing it but I will take him out and nurse him to calm him down (while driving). Usually we'll stop at a rest stop and let him run around but if we can't stop I won't let him sit there and cry and scream and turn blue. I just wanted to know if anyone has suggestions for long car rides or if anyone elses toddler doesn't like car seats.
Thanks in Advance
