This is not the usual cutie patootie posts about our LittleMiss.
I don’t drive so I always sit at the back with the kids, C and I find the seating arrangement convenient so I can attend to whatever request V and LittleMiss needs (water, food, tissue, breastfeed – yes I’ve found a way to feed LittleMiss while both of us are buckled in the back).
We bought V his car seat when he was around 3 years old and he never had a meltdown while seated. LittleMiss however started fighting getting strapped on to her car seat, carrier and stroller at 11 months. Most of the time I give in and end up letting her sit in my lap. Why? She starts crying, screaming and vomiting that we end up not having a fun family day. Once she ended having a mild fever from her car seat outburst from Al Qusais to Dubai Mall.
Photos below taken while we were waiting for Dad C to come back.
As soon as I put her down this happens.
And when I still refuse to get her she vomits.
Her outbursts has cause me stress whenever we go out. I’ve tried offering her toys, singing favorite songs, and breastfeeding (this usually works) but as soon as she unlatch we’re back to crying.
Any advise? Should we change her car seat? Ignore her completely? (ignoring her is really hard for me)
