wanted to get your thoughts on a little problem. My 5month old girl has recently developed an aversion to getting into her car seat. She is a fantastic baby, literally never cries or fusses and until recently, always went straight to sleep in the car.
In the last couple of weeks, whenever I try to put her in her seat, she immediately starts screaming. she arches her back and tenses up and just seems to hate being put in. As soon as i pull her out again, she immediately stops and will often continue grinning and laughing. I've checked every physical sign i can see for discomfort (seat belt too tight, not enough room, etc) but can't find anything that might be upsetting her. I saw another lady with a 5 1/2 month old baby the other day having the same problem.
any suggestions/ experiences with this? i'm at a loss!
