Keeping Baby Cool in The Heat

Monday, 19 June 2017
Teething hit us full force this month. Oliver now has two brand new teeth but for the past few weeks, we'd have days where Oliver would be crying constantly and chewing on everything he could get his hands on. If teething wasn't a big enough problem on it's own, along comes a heat wave. It's not as warm in Glasgow as it is elsewhere in Britain at the moment, but Oliver has still been feeling it. Luckily, we've found one thing that really helps with both teething and keeping baby cool and we can now get outside and enjoy the weather that we've been praying for all year!

The Nuby Garden Fresh Fruitsicles have been a life saver recently. This little set of 4 moulds can be filled with fruit/veg puree or with breast milk and popped into the freezer for a few hours. Once frozen, Oliver has a healthy fruit lolly that are easy to hold and suck on, relieving teething pain and keeping him cool at the same time. Oliver chews down on the ice (which, admittedly, makes me shudder) but I can see how much the cold sensation helps his gums. It's also a good way for him to get a bit of extra water in him when he's sweating more in the heat.

We usually buy a frozen smoothie bag from Tesco packed with strawberries, blueberries, avocado and spinach. We blend it up with water in our Nutri bullet. It only takes a few mins to make the smoothie and then we've then got 4 days worth of ice lollies ready to use in the freezer. The handle is really easy for Oliver to hold and it's also the right shape to put one of the dummy clips around, to stop your little one from throwing it straight out of the pram (something Oliver regularly attempts!).

We go on holiday in 3 weeks time and these frozen puree moulds have earned their place on my 'essentials' list for packing, and I'm sure Oliver is pretty pleased about that!

Have any of you tried these? What's your top tips for keeping baby cool in summer?
