8 Tips for Keeping Your Child Cool In The Car Seat

Parents are often worried about children being too hot in the car seat. Here are a few ways to keep cool and safe.

  • Point the air vents to the ceiling, this will allow the cool air to bounce down on the child.
  • Cover the car seat with a blanket when NOT in use, it will prevent the sun from making it hot.
  • Open opposite front and back windows to create a cross breeze.
  • Ice packs and spray bottles are fun and cooling.
  • Cling on window shades are safe and block out the sun.
  • Remember to always touch the buckles to be sure they are not hot when strapping in the child. Pull up collars and pull down shorts/skirt/dress fabric, so the car seat straps won’t rub against bare skin.
  • Never leave children unattended in vehicles and place an object like a cell phone, wallet, or purse in the front seat so a child is never forgotten.
