So I am pretty sure that Nika does not sweat. Now that the weather is getting really hot, I have noticed her turning really red. And this is not red as in sun burnt red, it is red as in overheating red. As soon as I bring her inside, she returns to her normal color.
I have heard that some kids with Down syndrome do not sweat, or do not sweat as much as they should. I know Payton sweats, although I'm not sure she sweats as much as the typical kid does. Alas ... it hasn't been an issue with her.
With Nika, however, we have a problem. I mean look at the picture of her ... that is not normal. This picture was taken after she played outside for maybe 30 minutes.
So you guessed it ... I need words of experience from those that are familiar with this. Guess we will be having some testing done.
