    That's a goo idea! My sons room is a sauna in the afternoons.

    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!)
