How do you keep you DC's room cool in this weather. I'm having a nightmare with my DS's room. It only get the sun in the morning, I have thermal blackout curtains which have been closed all day, windows open and fan on and it is still roasting!

None of us got any sleep last night because he was so over heated and made himself sick.

Any ideas?

The best thing we did as to put roof lights in the loft. They are open 24/7 at the moment and they stop the heat building up in the loft then radiating down into the house at night.

I shut DD1's blackout curtains while the sun is on the room, leaving the window open behind them. It definitely seems to help.

If you open the loft hatch too out keeps things cooler as the hot air can rise up and escape.

You could also try a cool bath before bed.
