A CAR expert and mother of two shared the six essentials every parent must have to keep their little ones cool in the backseat.
Nothing makes a baby fussy in their car seat like dealing with the summer heat.
Michelle is a nationally certified child passenger safety technician and a mother of two who runs a YouTube channel called Safe in the Seat with nearly 10,000 subscribers.
Her goal with the channel is to “bridge the gap between the science and technical side of car seat safety with real, everyday mom life.”
In a short video, Michelle revealed some of her favorite items she uses to keep her kids cool in the summer.
First is a stroller fan, which can easily attach to the baby’s stroller but Michelle says it must be removed when inside the car.
Next is Little Bum Coolers, a product that can hold several ice packs inside and attaches to the car seat.
The product keeps the child’s seat cooled for several hours without making the seat wet.
However, the item must only be used when the child is not in the seat.
An alternative is the Carats Car Seat Cooler, which does the same thing.
Parents can also use a reflective car seat cover, which reflects heat from the sun to keep the seat cool.
Another way to keep the baby cool using sun shades to block out the sun.
A windshield visor will also do the same as it helps to reduce the temperature inside the car.
