DD (1) has had a really bad virus for the last 10 days, and also had tonsilitis. Her temperature was up and down, so I was giving her paracetamol. When she woke up in the night, her temperature would be quite high because the paracetamol had worn off. But whilst I was bfing her back to sleep, her temperature would come straight back down to normal, and I would feel hot. It was like I absorbed her heat. Has this ever happened to anyone else? Is it still the effects of skin to skin contact? It was amazing!
Tis cool isn't it? I had heard about it in relation to keeping newborns warm, but didn't know it would work with an older baby and to cool them down. It was literally within 10-15 minutes, she went from scorching hot to cool. I must have saved a fortune in calpol!
