comment What are some effective ways of reducing itching from a mosquito bite?
A very effective technique once you're home, if you have a large number of bites all over you is to have a shower, as hot as you can stand. Till your skin reddens. This somehow "overloads" the nerves and the itching signal will be dramatically reduced for hours. Your cold or hot spoon may be doing something similar.

comment Recovering from Hypothermia
I am not exactly sure where your quoted text came from. I found those sentence word for word on many other sites. Most of them cite the National Institute on Aging as the source but without links. I chose this link - if you found it elsewhere feel free to update

Also, we have a separate question for infants. This question is about taking a child over 1 year specifically

comment Sailing with a child
I'm going to disagree on the "under 1 year" suggestion. Both my kids were in canoes starting at 6 weeks. A dinghy is surely safer and easier to take a baby in than a canoe is. PFD is, however, utterly crucial.
