    Default Would you take a 2 week old to the beach in 43 degrees?

    No way I wouldn't even take my 6 year old!

    No way. Also sunscreen won't stop you getting burnt, the sun glare and water reflection will burn you even in the shade. I spent 3hrs under a tree with ds2 layered in cream, no where near the water and he was beet red.

    Good god no. I wouldn't take myself, my toddler and certainly not a 2 week old. There is no sea breeze in Sydney today and a two week old cant properly control their body temp yet! We were told by the MHCN not to even put a muslin cloth over the pram in warm weather as its a SIDS risk never mind exposing a newborn to this extreme heat!!

    We are in QLD but also a walk from the beach, I might depending on the breeze, shade and whether I had air con at home.... I don't think it's negligent. We don't know all the circumstances!

    To be honest, I'm not attacking anyone, but I don't think people should be judging the parents when they aren't on here to explain their situation and to tell us the full story.
    They could have popped down to the beach for a quick ice cream under a tree with a nice breeze for a little bit to get out of their hot house. Who knows.

    As I said I was attacking anyone or starting a fight just stating my opinion :-)

    If it was that hot where I was I prob couldnt be bothered moving off the couch.
    My kids are both Oct babies so hard to say what I would do...
    But a newborn baby....so much could go wrong at the beach so no I prob wouldnt risk it.

    No I never would, regardless of whether I was under a tree.

    On a side note, I was at an indoor pool centre last Friday with DS (42 here in Melb) and was shocked to see a mum there with a 10 day old - IN the water. That's not something I would do either because of germs.
