    Default Keeping bub cool in the car

    Hi all!
    I was just hoping to get some advice about preventing bub from overheating in the car.
    I have a nearly 6 week old little boy who gets really hot and sweaty in his capsule which makes him miserable.
    We had a 5 min trip today and by the end he was beet red and screaming - which continued for a couple of hours when we got home, poor little guy (and mummy!)
    I have one of those shade things on his window and the air con was blasting, any other suggestions?
    It's going to be a long hot summer !

    A little pram fan attached to his car capsule! We live in darwin and it was a lifesaver so many times for me.... Also when we went through a bad period of power blackouts at night - it was disgusting but at least I knew baby was getting a cool breeze.
