    On stinking hot days, I wet my children's singlets before bed and they have ceiling fans to blow cool air onto them.

    You can position them different ways and for how powerful they are they are quite compact.

    Agree with Marigold's tips about industrial fans and blinds closed. Also wetting baby muslin cloths and draping them over your shoulders, and placing them on the mattress when they are only slightly damp so they have a cooling effect (use a mattress protector!) for naps. Sitting your feet in buckets or containers of water also keeps you cool.
    Wet you dd's hair before naps and sleeps too on hot days. Sleeping in damp cosies is another option.

    Good luck Aussie summers are the pits with little ones and trying to be comfortable xxx

    What about a misting fan?
    Or back in the day I remember draping a wet towel over a freestanding fan - the air would cool blowing through the wet towel.
    Other than that try and stop the place getting hot as much as possible, blinds down curtains drawn all day. No tv on - our tv heats the place up greatly. Cool play, splash in the bath, frozen fruit etc so everyone is as cool as possible and thin cotton clothes.

    Thank you for all the useful tips. It shows 26 in her room now at 10pm.. Had 4 resettles in an hour so I'm thinking she's too hot. Fan is pointing at the cot with just the air wrap shielding her..

    Come on Autumn!

    @amiracle4me just so you know, the industrial fan is quite noisy. I personally love white noise and cannot sleep without the sound of a fan running in the room (even in winter I need a fan aimed at the wall, just for the sound, but that's another story!) so it doesn't bother me at all.
