Carrier for hot weather?

Hi mamas,

I am wondering what you find comfortable for warm weather baby wearing? I had an Ellaroo with my three year old and found it was VERY warm for us in the summer and perfect for winter. I am due with another warm weathr baby. Any recommendations? I have a Maya ring sling for the beginning for newborn.I would love a SSC. I live in Santa Fe so our weather is anywhere from 86-95 during the summer until mid to late august and beginning in June. Dry heat. Our houses here don't have A//C. I am 5'1 and a little chubby (usually thin back out after pregnancy at 130).


Recommendations, tips, anything welcomed!

Not sure if it's exactly what you're looking for, but gauze wraps are inexpensive, cool in hot weather, and perfect for newborns.

Boba Air or the Ergo sport

Boba air is not for LONG term wear because it has very litte padding

I am intimidated by wraps that aren't stretchy.

Ergo sport hmmmm. The boba air seems a little uncomfort due to the padding.

I live in a very hot & humid area.  I used a gauze wrap for my little one when he was a baby.  Once he got bigger, I got a mei tai with gauze straps custom made for me (but that's not good for itty bitties).

did you have a hard time learning how to wrap with a gauze wrap?

I found it similar to the learning curve of a Moby/stretchy wrap.  But I liked it better bc it felt more secure and didn't "settle" like the stretchy one did.  And it was significantly cooler.
