Q- How do all manage to sleep in a house that’s so very hot? Dosen’t it make the baby cranky?
A-Yes. well it does in fact make the baby cranky. She ‘slept’ in a diaper with a fan on her, as did we (minus the diaper).
Q-So you did manage to get some sleep then?
A-Well I guess you could call it that. Evangeline woke up every 2 hours all night whining and wanted to nurse, likely dehydrating from the heat.
Q-Wow, you must be tiered. Do have an action plan to help tonight be better?
A-Sadly-No. It’s September so we were not expecting this. It was 12 degree’s hotter then the previous highest temperature in recorded history for Halifax yesterday. It’s expected to continue soaring until Saturday when we will get relief from an encroaching hurricane. I thus don’t expect alot of sleep until then. Unless we go rent a hotel room with AC, being that we sold ours because UM We don’t really need AC here cause were coastal and it stays cool…um..?
Evangeline has a heat rash on her cheeks. Today is day 5 of these soaring temperatures and we have at least 3 more before us. Lots of fluids, lots of nursing and hanging in our undergarments. Oy. Also I think this babies teething has kicked up a notch, she is drooling buckets all of a sudden, belly and diaper soaked.
