Okay ladies I have a few questions about this that have been cropping up over this heat wave.
1st. I know I have been having problems staying hyrdated personally lately because of the color of my urine. (Dark yellow orangish tinge) But I have attributed that to the fact that DJ has been sucking the life out of my because the heatwave has coincided with a 2nd bout of teething and I'm am letting him do as many shorts bouts as he wants in a day becaue I know he's comfort nursing and want him to get the extra hydration because it's hot and he'a a SWEATY little guy! Tips on staying hydrated personally? I am hardly ever without liquid, try to stay away from soda,(Though not entirely successful) I do 1/2 water 1/2 juice in any juice drink I do, always use 16oz glasses and always use ice and let melt and drink that too! Take a glass of water to bed with me every night and still.... Any Ideas?
At 1st I wasn't worried becasue I thought well at least he's getting what he needs and if one of us has to be dehyrated it's me. But lately I'm getting concerned about even that. He started showing interest in drinking water out of a glass so I've been letting him. And got to thinking it might be the temperature issue. (I know I'd rather drink ice water than warm milk)So he has a sippy cup of water with him and he drinks water and seems to enjoy that. He's 7 months so I think he can drink water right? But beyond the usual sweating he does, everynight when he nurses to sleep, all efforts to crawl, all sessions in Jump & Go, there's been much more just perspiring because of the weather. And this morning I noticed what appears to be chapped lips (on him)
so now I'm beginning to get quite uneasy about him getting enough fluids
