He doesn’t like his carseat, Sam-I-Am! Usually even a short trip involves so much screaming, which starts once he realizes we’re strapping him in and terminates only after we pull him out and cuddle him a bit. But a pacifier, knitted elf hat, and warm fuzzy blanket don’t hurt, either.
We don’t use pacifiers very much; Benji can find and effectively suck his thumb/fingers/hand, with the added benefit of his hand not falling out and getting lost when he stops sucking. That’s one of many parenting things I just don’t feel strongly about.
