My least favorite thing about summer is the inevitably burning hot car seat. Those tender little legs, that superheated metal…ugh. Here's Dana's solution:
Straight from the state of Florida…we keep our baby car seat cool with one of those foldable popup windshield sun shades placed over the seat. They fold down small enough to keep in the pocket of the passenger seat…and the best part…they fling open with just one hand. So I scoop up the baby, unfurl the sunshade, and toss it over the seat. Then loading everyone back in is just as easy…I can just scrunch it down while I get the baby strapped in and then it's just a couple of twists to get it put away. Plus, these generally come in packs of two…one for each car seat!
