Keep baby cool.

Kids are napping. Usually I don't blog during the day, but I'm so hot I can't get off the couch and I don't like daytime TV. We went to the park as soon as breakfast was over. We basked in the "cool" mid-eighties and ate chilly watermelon. By 9am we were dripping and the kids were exhausted. I think I'm going to hold off going to the park again until September. 

A while ago I read this really cool book called Baby Body Signs about how to "read" your babies signs to tell if there is a health concern. A great parenting resource to keep on hand. The book's authors recently wrote a great post about "Keeping your baby safe in the heat" that I highly recommend. When the temperature nears 100, you can't be too careful. You can read the article here

What are you doing to keep cool?

Popsicles, popsicles, popsicles :) and plenty of pool time. My kids would eat popsicles all day if I let them. My freezer it FULL of the Dryers Fruit Bars in every flavor. Lemonade is my fav.

To keep the kids hydrated I keep their sippy cups full of fresh ice water. The ice adds a little bit of novelty to it and they suck on it all day.

I concur Kiley's comments. We all start the otter pops pretty early in the morning ( I live in AZ). And I fill their with ice and add a little water. The ice melts quite fast and the water stays really cold for them to enjoy.

being inside by 10am. That means to the park as soon as baby's done with breakfast (unfortunately that isn't until about 9-9:30 so we don't have much time) and then staying indoors. Unfortunately that also means more tv :(
