  • Get a baby pool! That was the best thing about being pregnant with my 3 yo and already have my 4 yo. He was content to splash in the water while I submerged as much of me as possible in the water!

  • Dip washcloths in ice water, put your feet up, and put one on each foot.

  • All above ideas are great! Also take a cool shower and don't dry of. Just put on something loose and baggy and let your body dry slowly. Same with your hair. Keep it wet as much as possible. It will lower your overall temp!! Hang in there!! I know it's miserable
