Yes you can use fan depending on the temperature of room.
General rule is that you should feel a little uncomfortable with temperature in the room is best for baby.
Just 3-4 degree higher temperature is better than what you feel comfortable with.
Make the baby wear adequate number of clothes.
All the best
