    Hi all, I've probably asked this already but with the weather being quite hot today in the uk and just getting back from a stressful walk with Zac in the pram I was wondering if anyone had tips on keeping babies cool in Florida.
    Zac will be 8 months when we go in October so hoping the heat isn't going to be too bad but will welcome any tips anyone has
    Thanks

    it shouldn't be too hot but if he does get hot then take a flannel with you or maybe one of those fans that sprays water? you could make it a game. natural fibre clothing will help, put a towel on the pram seat and watch the buckles if you've left the pram out in the sun! they get really hot

    Thanks guys, he's such a hot baby at the moment. Today walking home from the high street he was screaming and crying because he was so hot - ended up stripping him off half way home and that only helped for a bit. he takes after me, I hate being too hot.
    Trying to find a stroller that is light in colour so it doesn't absorb too much heat.

    If you can't you could probably use a battery fan and attach it to the stroller - good thinking Julie

    A light color fabric for the stroller is a must. If you can't find one like that, bring a cotton sheet to cover the seat, and any hood it may have. The dark hoods absorb the heat and with the little one nestled deep inside it gets stifling.

    Washcloth with ice tied into it will help, but won't last long.

    October is nice though, usually. However, you may still find it too warm.

    A couple of years ago when we were there in October they had record breaking heat. We couldn't even enjoy the food and wine festival. Normally October is a very good month to be there however.

    I've found a stroller with a light top/sun shade thing but good thinking with the light coloured sheet. Will look into getting a fan. The fans for the buggies here don't let off much breeze so will probably look for one when we get out to the states
    Thanks guys
