It’s really freaking hot. We’re supposed to see relief soon but you know that the cold front Al Roker is talking about is temporary. It’ll get hot again in a few days and we’ll all be back to sweating ourselves silly.
Heat and babies are a bad combo. I always worry that my daughter is going to overheat and get dehydrated if we stay outside too long. I ply her with water and fruit to keep her fluids up but I still don’t like to spend long periods outdoors when the heat index gets up to 100 or better. (Sidebar: when the did the heat index become a thing? Is it like the wind chill of summer?). Not only to I worry about my kids in that kind of heat, I simply don’t enjoy the sensation of sweat pooling in my bra. Yuck.
I’ve been making the rounds of cool spots to entertain my baby the past few weeks. Click through for 5 of my favorite ways to beat the heat with my baby!
