Keeping Baby Cool in The Car Seat
It can be a challenge for parents to ensure their babies remain cool and comfortable during the hot summer days, especially when in the car seat. But, luckily, there are a few easy steps you can take to make sure your baby stays cool while in his/her car seat.
Resist the urge to leave baby’s head uncovered while in the car seat, even if it is a hot day. Keeping them covered is actually a great way to help baby stay cooler and block the sun. A lightweight fabric that is breathable will allow heat to escape, while still protecting them from the sun.
Crack The Windows
Crack the windows while driving around in the car, even if only slightly. It doesn’t need to be open wide and the last thing you want is for your baby to catch a chill. But, a few inches of fresh air can help circulate the air and keep baby at a comfortable temperature.
Choose The Right Times
If at all possible, avoid running errands during the hottest times of the day when your baby is in the car seat. Try running errands early in the morning or later in the evening. This will help keep the temperature down in the car, making sure your little one is nice and cool.
Keep Wet Clothes Handy
Finally, make sure you have wet clothes handy whenever you have the baby in the car seat. A cool, damp cloth can help keep baby from overheating and make them more comfortable.
By following these easy steps, you can help ensure your baby stays cool and comfortable during their car seat rides.
