Preparing for 1st baby- when to save vs splurge? buy new vs used?

How do I get my ten-month-old daughter to tolerate her car seat? I have a baby that despises being in a car. With a trip to Los Angeles (aka The Land of Car Transportation) coming up, I'm wondering if there's anything we can do to make her hate car transportation a little less. [more inside]

My sister just had her first child and on the car ride home, she discovered that her tiny, 3 day old, 5 pound baby is too small for her infant car seat!
