It wasn’t long ago I was commenting on our frigid northern temperatures, wishing for the sun to come out and heat things up a bit!
I take it back, I take it back!!!
Summer (in our part of the world) has barely begun, and we are already experiencing an almost unbelievable amount of heat. Also, because extreme heat is not expected for a very long period of time here, many people still don’t have air conditioners (including us), so our house is hovering around the 29 to 30 degree C mark. It goes up to about 32 during the day, and goes ‘down’ to 27 at night – if we’re lucky!
I spoke to a friend of mine this morning who had rushed her daughter to emergency with early signs of heat stroke, and it had me worried. How do you keep babies and children cool when you have no way of lowering the temperature in your home below ‘freaking hot’??
We have been dressing my daughter in nothing but a diaper for night, we have her ceiling fan at its highest setting as well as leaving her bedroom window open and it still stays warmer than most other rooms in the house.
How do you keep your little ones cool in the warm weather???
