Re: Wrap/carrier that's good for BF and in hot weather?

How about a ring sling in light airy fabric? It takes some practice to get used to, but I hear it is worth the effort (I'd guess after a week you'd have it down). You can cover up with the tail, but if your baby doesn't like to be covered, you should also just be able to adjust the rails so no one can see.

I just ordered a maya wrap sling on sale for $19 (about $26 w/shipping), haven't tried their slings before, but the adjustable pouch I had was really light breathable fabric. I'll try to remember to post an update when it gets here. This sling has light padding on the shoulder, but none in the rails.

Here's the sale:

You could also get a moby wrap or other stretchy wrap, but that involves more fabric & might feel warmer since you'll be wrapped up too.

A Mei Tais are nice too, I'm not sure they'd be as cool or as easy to discretely nurse, but they are a really good option for you too.

TBW has a fsot section with lots of great deals & also "choosing your baby carrier" forum:
