I was in Cincinnati last November 9th – 12th, and the temperature of course was very different compared to what I am used to. I am used to warm tropical weather, and when my plane landed, and I got my first whiff of the Cincinnati air, my senses were shocked. It’s a good thing I checked the weather forecast before I left, and I had coat to keep me warm. The locals told me that I was lucky because it was not yet that cold. To them, it was just right. For adults, it is quite easy to make the necessary adjustments when we feel cold. We either layer our clothes, wear heavy insulated jackets or cover up in our favorite blanket, and then we are okay.
However, this may not hold true for children, especially for newborn babies. According to studies, a mother can protect her baby from the dreaded Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. The article states that if the temperature in the room where the baby sleeps is maintained at 60 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit, the chances for SID is reduced. Thanks to technology, now there is a cool device called the Groegg color changing digital room thermometer. It comes in an egg-shaped innovative design with an LED light that changes color based on the room’s temperature. It can also act as a glow light or night light. The device turns yellow when it is at the right temperature, and it changes color when it is not. The gadget sells for $34.99.
