Switching to a Front Facing Car Seat.

I am currently using the rear facing infant carrier, however, my son is now 6 months old and is at the height requirment to switch seats.

Rear Facing Seat Turning Forward

I have a 10 month tiny baby girl only 15 pounds and an SUV. My car does not have any vents in the back seat so my daughter gets so hot with no air flow. We direct the vents off us and onto her as best we can, but she is still drenched in sweat once we get to our destination. Would it be horrible of me to go ahead and turn the seat forward facing so we can direct the air right on her just for the summer? It is just too hot right now. Any ideas on what could help?
