The summer heat is quickly approaching here in Arizona. With this, comes a hot car and a bad situation.
Driving around in a car that feels like a sauna on a hot day with temperatures over 100F is never fun. Now with Rylan though, we cannot just take the heat and drink more liquids. We have to make sure that he is not going to melt in back of the car. The question is, how do you do this?
We have 2 cars, both are old and different in many ways. Our main family car is a bit larger and the air conditioning is not the best. While it does blow out cool air, it takes a while and is not that effective. This is made worse with a larger car and how far Rylan is away from the vent. The other car is smaller and with a working air conditioning system. This car seems to cool down more quickly however does not have any window coverings such as tint.
I am very curious to see how other people keep their cars cool so the kids don't melt. The window tint works but only to a point before the heat is just blasted in. The car seat is mainly made of plastic and fabric so a burning situation seems unlikely but when I pull Rylan out of his car seat, I do not want him to feel sweaty.
How do you accomplish this?
