10 Wk Old Unhappy in Car Seat

We have a Graco Snugride car seat, and my 10 wk old daughter cries uncontrollably when in it. She screams, cries, tearing, red faced, fist shaking, to the point of almost gagging... it is just awful. I dread long car rides, pull over every 5-10 minutes. She can be perfectly happy before getting in the seat, and still has this reaction. My son was in the same seat and was fine. We have changed the angle by adding padding underneath the base, didn't help. We are going to try another seat. My question is, has anyone had this experience?...

Graco SafeSeat Infant Car Seat

Hi there, Is anyone using this carseat? do you like it? I am concerned about it fitting in my backseat and having to move the passenger seat all the way up. I have a VW Passat. My daughter is 26 inches at 13 weeks so she no longer fits in her SnugRide. I should add that I would really like to keep her in an infant seat because I hate to disturb her naps which she likes to take in her car seat while we run errands or pick up her brother from school. Thanks!
