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.
Let your own body be your guide...when you’re too warm, so is your baby...take a break.
