We have a newborn baby! It is the middle of winter, and we have a newborn baby.
With a new baby comes the realization that your life is never going to be the same.
More than just sleep, your entire life begins to revolve around taking care of the baby. You may like the fact that your air conditioner makes your house absolutely freezing, but as you set your thermostat, you have to remember that the air conditioner could make your baby cold and sick. Speaking of HVAC systems, our baby loves the furnace. We have hardwood floors in our house, but we purchased a rug to place in the center of the room for our baby to play on. Unfortunately, it turns out that our baby is not interested in the rug because he thinks that the furnace is much cooler! Every day, our baby crawls over to the vent on the furnace and plays with it. Our baby loves that the furnace sents warm air to keep him warm. In his diaper, he is able to lay over the vent for the furnace and play all afternoon. Whenever the furnace shuts off because the temperature got too high, he begins whimpering until we either adjust the thermostat or the furnace kicks back on again. We thought that he would love the feeling of being in front of the air conditioner, but apparently he does not like cold air as much as warm air. He likes our furnace much more than the air conditioner, which makes us kind of sad since we prefer colder temperatures. However, we want to do what is best for our child.
