Aircon - 10 Month Old Baby

Hi - my 10 month-old Goddaughter lives in the Seychelles where it is obviously extremely hot. Is it a bad thing to let her continually sleep in the aircon i.e. will it dehydrate her too much? Would it be better to rather use either a ceiling fan or a fan on a stand? She sweats quite a bit and needs a change of clothes quite often. Thank-you.

There should be no problem with using an effective aircon as long as the filters are cleaned as the manufacturers recommend.
