Best carrier or wrap for a newborn?

I'm currently pregnant with my fourth and I need suggestions on what kind of carrier or wrap is the best. I have a Moby wrap, but it's just too hot to wear here in Florida. I'm up for anything at the moment. :)

Thanks!

I like my ring sling for newbies.

I have heard that ring slings are great for newbies, also I have a Baby K'Tan and its similiar to the Moby but it comes in mesh too so its great for those hot days.

I LOVE my Maya ring sling. It can be used throughout the newborn stage and into toddlerhood depending on how you wrap it.

You might like a lightweight linen wrap!

Another vote for ringsling.
I didn't get a moby for the same reason, I even find my woven wrap to be too hot as well in the summer.

Hard to say.  Each baby is so different.  My DD LOVED being in her Peanut Shell and my DS hated it.  DS was most comfortable in the Baby K'tan, a lot like a Moby, but a lot less material.  As he got a little older, he liked being in a ring sling as well, but the Baby K'tan worked better for me at distributing his weight better.
