When my partner and I decided to have children, both of us knew that there would be some additional fees. There were numerous costs that both of us had been expecting- diapers, monitors, wanderers, etc. however a single thing both of us had not been counting on was an increased vigilance to my overall heating and cooling habits. Taking care of a baby is sort of like having an elderly woman in that she is unquestionably sensitive to the temperature. My Grandma had consistently been similar to that. In the Winter time she turned the furnace way up and, in the summer, she ran the air conditioner so much it felt like an ice box! My partner and I almost always kept the home pretty moderate with the cooling set to 74 in the summer and relatively cool with the heating set to 76 in the Winter time to save on heating and cooling costs. The people I was with and I had grown accustomed to this, but my baby legitimately had not. She would get so frosty in the Winter time no matter how multiple blankets I wrapped her in, plus she would get so hot in the summer time even if she was only wearing her diaper! My partner and then I began decreasing our heating plus cooling habits instantly when I read online that babies need to remain in a stable, moderate environment as much as possible for their own comfort. Naturally, as one might expect, both of us started keeping the home at a moderate temperature year-round. I am glad to say that both of us are now expecting baby number 2! This time, we’ll be sure that our baby is in a comfortable environment from the beginning!
