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

    I think it's wrong especially if you can't put sunscreen on them and at that age most don't give their babies water. Way to hot to have a 2 week out.

    I don't think it's wrong - really does depend on a lot of factors which you may not be aware of. My kids have never had a sunburn in their life despite the fact we go to the beach pretty much every day over summer (particularly on school holidays).

    Personally no. A baby that young can't regulate their temperature like we can. Plus their skin is super sensitive. I don't think they can use sun screen either. Just an all round no.

    If they want to cool down why not go to shops, library or even an indoor or undercover pool?

    No way, I don't go in that heat, let alone my kids or a 2week old. Babies and elderly especially should stay indoors when its that hot.

    No, I wouldn't. Not a 2 week old, and not in 43 temps. If either of those 2 factors were different than yeah, absolutely! A swim at the beach might be a lovely way to cool down for a 5yr old, but not 2 weeks old.

    I'm about to go and pick up DS and my nephew from vacation care early so they can both go and play all afternoon in the pool, but I didn't leave the office all day. I specifically brought in my lunch so I wouldn't have to, and I sent DS with a water bottle filled with ice and an ice block in his lunch box.

    Nope. I'd go to the movies. With a 2 week old is perfect as they sleep!

    No way! When DD was that age all she wanted to do was feed. Can't imagine anything worse then sitting in 43 degree weather feeding a warm baby! Would definitely be staying in the aircon.

    No way!!! I wouldn't even go. I have never really understood going to the beach during a heat wave.

    This exactly. I can't think of many worse places then a beach in that heat.
