Was taught to check just inside their shirt at the top of their back/base of their neck - feet and hands are the first thing to get cold, so not a good indication!

Are you worried about being cold indoors or outdoors? Indoors if their chest is warm they are ok. My son often times cold hands or feet but sleeps best at 68 or 69F overnight. I dress him how I would like to be dressed. I run cold so I figure I would be warm he will be warm.

For winter walks I make sure to have layers including hats and gloves but we go out on walks until it is freezing. Same principles apply.

My babies always have cold hands and feet but if the back of their neck is warm you’re okay.

Sounds perfect - cold extremities and temperate/warm base of neck is what you want.

I had no idea having children took such a toll on a relationship. I love my little one more than life but he just turned one and the sadly it has driven my husband and I apart. We no longer spend time together because I am mentally drained after dealing with the baby all day. My sex drive has gone completely out the window. It’s been a whole year…. It feels like a partnership more than a relationship now. We argue so much. Has anyone experienced this? Does it get better as the kids get older?

After 2 weeks I brought up that there’s a lot of good in us that maybe worth trying to work on (counseling etc). He wants space first and asked me to not wait for him as he sorts out his emotions and “tries to be happy again” (COVID depression and 100hr work weeks). Then he’ll decide if he wants to try again
