I know we have talked about this several times before but now that summer is approaching I think that maybe I will remember this time (hopefully anyways). Being in Texas it is pretty much at least 70 on most days if not in the 80. By the end of May, it will be well over 80 most days. From what I remember, most everyone seems to begin overheating at about 75 degrees. How will I know if Jared is overheating since he isn't speaking yet? I do think that he over heated in the store the other day because he was screaming and unconsolable. I stripped him down to his diaper and sat down with him where he was far enough away from me to not be getting warmer from my body heat and he did calm down. Other than that I have no idea what to look for. Also, I want to make sure that I have the ways to cool him down correctly. I have a very active 4 year old whom up until now has been outside pretty much from dawn to dusk and he is having a very difficult time adjusting to this. I just do not want him to begin to resent the little guy for not being able to go outside as often. Anyways, I got off track. Ways to cool down...
cold, wet wash cloths
t-shirts or oneies in ice water (switch them out as they dry out)
drink lots of water and fluids.
Which of these are best for infants? Jared will be between 6-10 months during the hottest parts of our year. Honestly though, Texas is hot most of the year. It isn't abnormal to have a heat wave in December. Thank you for any advice you can give. Again, sorry about asking the same question for the thousandth time.
