Cold Temps

Talk about "daddy brain".......

I have been very upset over recent decision to take my baby out in the cold.  It was about -1 celcius in Vancouver recently and I was so focused on keeping my daughters' body warm that I double layered everyting from her waist up.

I totally forgot to double layer her feet!

She was only wearing socks and was exposed to the weather for about 2 hours.  

Her feet were very cold when i realized my mistake.......

She did not fuss or cry, and quite frankly had the same personality as she had prior to heading out for the 2 hour journey.  

I checked the color of her skin and it was the same.....she was not shivering either.  She actually slept through most of the 2 hour trip outdoors.

Is there anything I should be concerned about?  I haev made an appointment to see the pediatrician soon to inform them about the situation.....

    No. Unless they were white and looked frostbit. And even then, I've been frostbit several times (I live in Alaska and do outdoor sports) and it thaws and no big deal. 

    Oh my word, I just realized -1 Celsius. That's barely below freezing! It would take hours and hours and hours to freeze at that temp!
