When my handsome husband and I later decided to have children, we knew that there would be some additional costs.
There were many costs that we had been expecting- diapers, monitors, roamers, and other things.
however 1 thing we had not been counting on was an increased vigilance to our heating as well as cooling habits. Having a baby on your hands is sort of like having an elderly person in that she is so damn sensitive to the temperature changes. My beautiful Grandma had always been like that; in the Wintertide she turned the heating system way up and, in the summer, she ran the air conditioner so much it felt similar to an ice box! My husband as well as I constantly kept the beach house pretty damn warm with the cooling set to 69 in the Summer as well as relatively cool with the heating set to 80 in the Wintertide to save on heating as well as cooling costs. We had grown accustomed to this, however our baby absolutely had not. She would get so damn cold in the Wintertide no matter how several blankets I wrapped her in, as well as she would get so sizzling in the Summer even if she was only wearing her diaper! My husband as well as I started increasing our heating and cooling habits immediately when I study online that babies need to remain in a stable, warm environment as much as can be just for their own comfort. Naturally, of course, we started keeping the beach house at a moderate temperature year-round. I am ecstatic to say that we are now expecting baby number 2! This time around though, we’ll be sure that our baby is in a comfortable environment from the very beginning!
