The BEST wrap?

I have The Ultimate Baby Wrap and have used it w/ 2 kids now. Unfortunately, DS is a chubs and I'm finding he sinks WAY low no matter how tights I've put the wrap on. I've also seen a lot of fun carries I want to try, but most of them have some disclaimer about how they aren't secure w/ the stretchier wraps.

So - share your favorite wrap.

I definitely need something lightweight as we live in MX w/ no air conditioning and go home to Arizona to visit in the summers.

Hands down a Didy. And probably an Indio at that. See them here:

Suoer soft, very comfy, holds a big baby/toddler.

Re: The BEST wrap?

I agree that Didys are great with heavier babies/toddlers. Many people find that the Waves Didys are airier and not as warm in hot climates as some of the other Didys.

Another option would be a gauze wrap, such as the Gypsy Mama Bali Baby Breeze. I tried one when DS2 was about a year old, and I found it to be remarkably supportive and comfy. They are wonderfully cool for hot climates.

Have fun choosing, but keep in mind that baby carriers can be as addictive as cloth diapers.
