20-Month-old Won't Nap in Carseat

My 20-month-old has never been the average child when it's come to napping. Even as a newborn I could hardly take her out in a public place without her being aware of everything around her and not wanting to sleep. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to get her to relax when we go on a driving trip, since instead of going to sleep in her carseat when she's tired she just screams like she'll never stop. We bring her blankie and her stuffed elephant that she loves to sleep with but no good. She's a pretty good napper as...

How to Handle a 10-Month Old on a Long Car Trip??

Hi all - we are taking our first trip with our 10-month old to Myrtle Beach in a few weeks, and I'm getting anxious about the long car trip.

My Baby Doesn't like Her Car Seat

I have an almost three month old little girl. She hates riding in her car seat. Everytime we go somewhere she almost cries the entire time in the car. I have tried losening the straps a little in case they were too tight and taking off her car seat cover while in the car or in a restuarant. Nothing really works. I hardly ever leave her in it while she is awake because she gets so irritated and cries. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Baby Einstein Videos

Just wanted opinions on the Baby Einstein Videos. It is my understanding they were developed by a stay at home Mom trying to find something to stimulate her children's minds. I don't obviously want my child raise by the tv but I thought a half hour of this when he's fussy just to settle him down a bit is ok. Does anyone have any of these videos and do they really work?
