BF in 90+ degree heat

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?

Re: BF in 90+ degree heat

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..

Re: BF in 90+ degree heat

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 . We were both sweating like crazy and she kept losing her latch because it was so slippery. Ick.

I bf DS at an Astros game in Minute Maid Park with an ice cold water bottle between the two of us They had the roof open and our seats were right in the sun 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. We used to do that every now and then. I once heard someone call nursing in the bath - taking a "dinner cruise".
