    Hi @gemw we were pretty fortunate as my little girl tolerated her car seat really well (but I am so glad we are past that stage as she has a WAV now) have you tried looking on here?

    They do consultations and a few people have said they provide really good advice. You could also ask baby's physio/OT (but they won't pay for one) Newlife charity might help you there

    perhaps there are some stretches physio can recommend? Our daughter used to try to arch her back, she would come out sweating after a lot of crying. I did not ask for help much. perhaps it is quite easily solved with help. Other than that I did find it made a huge difference when I turned her round later on.
