Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

What is a good way to keep my 5 month old cool in hot weather?

My son is prone to heat rashes so when it gets hot, we don't dress him.  He spends all day in his diaper, and at night we don't use a blanket and just keep drafts off him.  Hope that helps.  You can also have the baby run around in nothing, not even a diaper, if your ok with it, and depending on how much he's mobile.  Good luck.
run the air conditioner, dress him in light clothing, such as a diaper, and onsie. or just a diaper. i live in MS, and it can get up to 100deg, plus here. i have a 20 month old daughter, and  i let her run around the house wearing a t-shirt, and her underwear. i also put a fan in front of her bed for naps and bedtime. helps to keep her cool, and block out noise from our 6 dogs.
