Hot. Sweating. Flustered.
If you’re a busy mum — or even just a busy woman — then these are words that might be familiar to you.
My kids like nothing better than to sit on top of me. I don’t know why, or what is so appealing about it, but they love it! Back when we lived in our house, we had a large, comfortable L-shaped lounge and I can tell you honestly that there was always at least one child on top of me. In winter, I love a cuddle too. In summer … not so much. Please get off me!!
I have always been able to confidently say that summer was my favourite season, but since being pregnant and having our three kids there’s something about the heat that now flusters me. I get agitated when the kids want to jump all over me. I feel bloated when I eat too much and don’t have much energy.
These lightweight cotton wraps are an amazing addition to my wardrobe — not only do they come in many stylish colours but they keep me cool in the easiest way possible. That’s right, even easier than hopping into my cossie (that’s Aussie speak for swim suits) and wrangling the whole family down to the beach.
I use my wrap every day. I use it when I do the housework (or caravan work, I suppose you could call it). I lay it over me when I’m putting our youngest down for her sleep in the hot middle of the day. I wear it wrapped over my head when we’re out in the sun, and I wear it in the car while we’re driving. I even use it to keep me cool while sleeping!!
They are so versatile, I just love them, and I am so glad WrapMeCool has come into my life.

We wanted to see the bird with bright blue feet. We were all prepared with our WrapMeCool scarves and wraps to keep us cool in the hot sun and to help us sleep. They were definitely on the packing list.
We were excited to receive some WrapMeCool wraps to trial as a family — not just any family, but a family of five who happen to be travelling around Australia in a caravan.
With three little people on board — aged 5, 3 ½ and 2 — it can be pretty hard to stay cool in hot climates. With our WrapMeCools we are instantly cooled wherever we go. We use them at the beach, on our hikes, while we’re in the car, even while we’re sleeping!
The great thing is they can be wet with any water source; beaches, rivers, creeks, even a puddle if that’s all you’ve got!
Hello, I’m Sophie and I live in Australia.
I was diagnosed with secondary progressive MS in 2009 while training for my first half-marathon and working as a Registered Nurse. Like many of us, I find managing heat to be a huge challenge. Heat causes me distress and really saps my energy.
Now I have several wraps in different colours and I laugh because my biggest problem is to choose which one looks best! They are definitely my secret weapon for dealing with the heat because they make the intolerable, tolerable and allow me to get out and enjoy my life with dignity.
