TAKE A BREAK IN THE SUMMER HEAT

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.

Being skin-to-skin has lots of benefits, but it also generates body heat.
Let your own body be your guide…when you’re too warm, so is your babytake a break.

HAPPY NESTING!
