I keep my newborn in a diaper only

I have posted a few pictures of Zander on facebook in just his diaper. His father's mom's boyfriend keep commenting and saying " Now I know Zander has clothes" and " Where are his clothes at?"

The reason he has his clothes off and in just a diaper is because it is so hot! We don't have a/c  and it's about 90 degrees our right now. He's sweating and is red so I leave him in just his diaper until he cools off. Is this wrong? Do you do this? He's making me feel like I'm doing something wrong.

He is 3 weeks old.

Any thoughts?

Example of picture:

I don't go out with him in public undressed. It's just for small amounts of time while we are at home. I've only post maybe 3 photos of him without clothes on and just in a diaper but that guy commented on everyone about it.


I live with my parents. We had an a/c but it broke and they haven't had the money to replace it yet. I do have a fan but sometimes that isn't enough. We do plan on getting another though.

DS mostly stays in a diaper, or sometimes not even that!
Same reason, it's hot. We have AC but only use it when it's super hot!

Eh. Some people are just weird about babies/toddlers being dressed. I'm one of them: DD has never gone a day not fully outfitted.

We've always had AC though, so it's a different sitch.

I have ac and ds is in a diaper a lot of the time. Nothing wrong with that.

 In your situation it makes sense.

I've always had AC but, if I didn't I would do the same.  You aren't doing a thing wrong by trying to keep your child cool.
