    I just want clarify we didn't make DD1 drive long distances to cure her hatred of the car. We did it because we wanted to go away occasionally. We sat with her the whole way and held her hand and tried to comfort her.

    I would never advocate what was suggested. We went through hell during this period and I wouldn't recommend it willingly.

    Just to clarify, i'm clearly a total monster and should have my children taken off me and raised by perfect parents like yourselves.

    Way to try and make somebody else's thread a pity party about you because people don't agree with your suggestion.

    I think other people made it about Little crow when they started personally attacking her.

    The only issue I took with your original suggestion was that you said it always worked. In my experience, nothing "always" works with kids. Some kids might have reflux and driving is never going to be a happy experience for them. There is no one size fits all.

    Maybe if you'd said it's what worked for you rather than how it came across people might have responded differently.

    I would disagree with that statement. I didnt count all the posts but it's onto page 3 and I think 4 or 5 posts may have been directed at your suggestion. I don't think that everyone attacked you. I can see how a couple of statements could be harsh but it's probably better to bring it up with the poster that offended you rather than make out the whole thread has been about you.

    I think being in the car in a rearward facing seat is very isolating and scary for babies- they suddenly can't see their parents and are all alone. That's why I tried the mirror and it worked instantly for us.
    I wouldn't use little crow's suggestion either because its essentially a form of cry it out which goes against my parenting principles. All that I have read suggests letting a baby cry that long makes them feel terrified and alone- they are very distressed and the people they rely on for every single thing do not come to their aid. I can't bear the thought of doing that personally, I'm sorry if that offends, Little Crow. I'm not trying to attack you but rather to share some info. This is a good article about CIO and its long term effects:
