Thanks everyone, will have a read in the morning....dd spent 2 hours in tears saying hot hot and dh was foul so we escaped to my grandparents lounge room and set up camp with their aircon.... Won't be able to stay tomorrow night so will need to use your tips!
Cant wait till tues, they can't fix our aircon until it cools down and isn't a total fire ban
We checked into a hotel for the night. I was sick of my 8 week old breaking out in a heat rash every time I fed him.
I'll be using the wet muslin wrap idea, thank you!
We live where its 40-45 degrees every day and have had no air con for 7 weeks
Just be careful with alfoil on the windows. Yes, it helps, but it stains the windows so if you're in a rental this isn't the best option. Keep all curtains/blinds shut.
Nappy and singlet are the way to go. Lots of swimming or cool baths. All food and drink cool.
Evaporative coolers are worthless in my opinion. A pedestal fan will do the same thing.
Good luck....its hard but it will pass (unlike here!)
