Car Seat Issues

My friend has a 5 month old son who crys every time he is in his car seat. He is fine for the first few minutes but then works his way up to a cry. He even does this in the stroller. She knows that his diaper is clean, that he is fed and that he is not tired. She has tried to put him in while he is sleeping and it works well until he wakes up. Any ideas?
