With the mornings starting to become quite chilly, we have now started to put on the:
I know it seems very early to be starting to put the heating back on, but Jessica’s heart condition means that she gets cold very easily and will go quite blue when she is cold, especially on her hands, feet and lips. She’s been back in winter pyjamas at night for a couple of weeks now and other than when it is really warm in summer always wears socks to bed, but over the last week, she has been quite blue in the mornings and her little hands and feet are like ice. The photo below shows the difference in colour when she is cold (and she had warmed up a bit before the photo on the left was taken) compared to her colour on a warm summer day. We’ve had a few mornings this week where we’ve had snuggles under a big thick fleecy blanket with Jessica in her lovely thick dressing gown and slippers on, with some warm milk to drink, trying to get her pinked up as quickly as possible.
Thankfully she doesn’t seem to be going through the phase of trying to constantly undress herself this year. I will never forget the shock I got one morning around this time last year when I walked into her room to find a very cold and very blue Jessica standing up in her cot in just a nappy with her onesie around her ankles.
