The Stroller Fan attached to his car seat handle
Gunnar has been a little fussy in the car the past several weeks. Whenever I would get him out of his car seat, he was all sweaty. It has been so hot here in Atlanta with temperatures in the 90's. I always have the A/C on full blast in the car, but my mini van doesn't have air vents in the back. He just hasn't been getting enough cool air since his car seat is backwards. I decided I needed to find him a little fan to help him cool off. It was tougher than I thought. First, I wanted something that was battery operated. Second, I wanted something that had a way of clipping to his car seat so it would blow directly on him. Third, I wanted something that had blades that wouldn't hurt him or the other kids if they touched it. I was so surprised when I researched fans. I found all these "kid friendly" fans with metal blades. I read reviews on Amazon, I found that people were saying they were getting cut on them. Yikes. I decided to go with a Stroller Fan from One Step Ahead. I have been so happy with this fan. It has fulfilled every one of my requirements. It is operated on 2 AA batteries and has an on/off switch. I would recommend using rechargeable batteries. There is a large clip on the end that I attached to the handle of his car seat. The neck of the fan is flexible as well so I can adjust it. Lastly, the blades are made out of foam so they won't cut him. Gunnar stays cool and is much happier in the car and never sweaty.
