  • Carriers get really hot. So you might want to do the stroller.

  • Invest in a good gauze wrap. It will be cooler than other carriers and just as comfy, if not more so. Also, make sure to cover baby's head, legs and arms so they dont get burned. Walking is great for you and the fresh air is great for baby!

  • you should be ok going in the early mornings or evenings after its cooled down or befor it gets to hot. But i do agree with aqua jen you miht be better off investing in a good gauze wrap carrier if its going to be something you use alot because they do keep baby and you alot cooler.

  • Remember the baby will be getting your body heat too in a carrier. You don't want a baby to overheat. Never heard of a gauze wrap carrier but it still seems like it might be too hot.

  • I lived in Kuwait for almost 20 years and believe me, you haven't experienced hot until you've been out in 120 degree weather in the SHADE!! That said, I used a chest carrier for my children and they seemed much happier in that than in the stroller. Just be sure to slather on baby sunscreen and a nice floppy hat to keep the sun's rays off her head and face.
