Favorite warm weather carriers and carries...

I have NO carrier preference. I use everything! (although I don't have a buckle carrier/mei tai yet for my baby, I have a toddler one that is too big still). I'm just wondering what has worked best for other Mamas in the heat of the Summer. Thanks!!

Re: Favorite warm weather carriers and carries...

For mei tais, depending upon the size of your LO, I have often heard the freehand recommended. I have a freehand and it is very lightweight. I expect to use it this summer with my LO.

For SSC's- I have also heard of some liking the BBII. Jillian @ PAXbaby says she puts an icepack on the side of BBII pannel that touches the parent so it's not directly touching the baby. She says it helps keep both parent and baby cooler. I haven't tried it yet.

The material on the Boba I have feels fairly light weight and my LO should be big enough for that this summer that I plan to try using that. Depending upon your size, you may like the Anglepack as the APLX is very lightweight material.

I think no matter what, wearing your baby in the summer will be hot. I have also seen some people recommend a different type of fabric for warm weather use, but I don't remember at the moment what it is. You may also want to check out the forum at thebabywearer.com as I have seen this question posted a few times recently with quite a few different responses over there.

I like SSC carriers with a solarveil panel. Solarweave is also an option, but not as cool at solarveil.
