No. Its not good for the baby. Keep baby in shade n cool. Baby shouldnt be in sun.

You can't use it until six months their skin is to sensitive. Also watch them in the shade a friend of mine her little baby got a little burn sitting in the shade one day so you have to be extra carefully

I never even thought about this. Great question.  I am also having a Summer baby. I already feels like the only thing I will be enjoying this summer is the baby and not being pregnant anymore. ;)

They burn Super Fast. I would avoid the sun by any means necessary. That's why women cover the car seats with blankets in public.

With the Global warming, the sun is getting stronger
