Do you need a hood? I'm only now getting a universal one for my 9 mo old for my mei tai and ssc bc his head flops when he sleeps on my back but when he was littler the mei tai was tall enough. I used a mesh rs in the heat for newborns as well. I know you didn't like yours...maybe you could get to a baby wearing mtg and try some carriers out?
Oh and I have had 4 summer babies and just keep them in a diap and they were fine. By wearing them, they regulate their skin temp better and are cooler on you in a carrier
Jul, Mama to 1/2 dozen boys; and been doing those "off-beat" parenting things way before they were cool and learning more each day!
