BF in 90+ degree heat
 
Any suggestions about bfding in a heat wave. Both me and DD are sweating like crazy!

I prefer nursing under a ceiling fan on full blast! That or air conditioning... Maybe an ice cold drink by your side? A cold bath first? :giggle:

wet wash cloth, a fan, and a cold drink for mama!

wiping yourself (and DD) down with a wet washcloth with a fan blowing will make you a lot more comfortable..

I used to put a receiving blanket between myself and the boys just to keep them from sweating on me.

Try lying side by side on a firm surface. Cotton always cools me down. Side by side you 2 can actually nurse without as much skin tp skin contact and you won't get as sticky.

Oh man I ended up having to bf dd outside the other day in 90 degrees :yuck: . We were both sweating like crazy and she kept losing her latch because it was so slippery. Ick.

when we had no a/c in FL in JULY after a hurricane we had fun with wet washcloths!

I bf DS at an Astros game in Minute Maid Park with an ice cold water bottle between the two of us :giggle: They had the roof open and our seats were right in the sun :yuck: He ended up napping in the Beco for most of the game with a water bottle between us.

This won't always be an option, lol, but you could nurse while taking a cool bath together. :goodvibes: We used to do that every now and then. I once heard someone call nursing in the bath - taking a "dinner cruise". :giggle:
