This summer is promising to be a scorcher, and I wanted to remind all mothers that babywearing can get pretty toasty, and to take a break when you get too hot.
Over Memorial Day weekend I received these sweet pictures from first time moms, Katie, of Roseville, CA, where the temperature was over 90, along with the caption, “I’m wearing Ben in your carrier right now! I love it and he seems to as well. He is fast asleep!
I LOVE hearing from moms, and always reply, but I was also thinking about the heat, and wrote back, “Hi Katie, Great! Just remember, on a hot day like today, take breaks— or move inside where it is cool. When you are too warm, so is Ben.’
Katie emailed me back a few minutes later to thank me for the reminder and to say she was moving inside where it is cooler.
