I finally dragged my infant insert for the ergo out. As far as heat goes, its two layers of cotton fabric with a layer of cotton batting (like a quilt). So that would surround baby (like a burrito) and then the canvas carrier on baby's back, too.

You can skip the stretch wrap an go right to a woven which can get you through all your baby wearing days if ure so inclined. Vatanai is a good thin and ultra supportive brand so its good in hot weather.

Dd lives in r wrap the first year. She was such a fussamuss

For dh we have a boba which isnt as comfy for me as wrapping.

Ive tried he ktan too and foind it only
Slightly useful and would never get it again

Yay babywearing!! Im on the hunt for a good deal as I sold my beloved
Vat whales (in my avi) to help fund my sewing machine.

Re: Talk to me about baby wearing.....

I bought a sleepy wrap for the newborn stage, I'm so excited for it to get here so I can try it out.

I had an Ergo with Lizzie but I'm leaning towards a Beco Butterfly II for this one. I almost bought one on Mama Bargains the other day but I just couldn't pull the trigger. Oh well, I have time.

Re: Talk to me about baby wearing.....

I love my sleepy wrap for newborn... I used it with my son for quite a while. My daughter wanted to see things soon than he did so I bought a MeiTai for her and love it as well.

I love stretchy wraps because you put them on first and then tuck baby in... SO easy! You can put it on under your coat (I used mine AS a sweater in some weather!) and baby can go in and out and back in again without having to retie. It was the best for shopping! I love the MeiTai because it too is REALLY easy and I can get my baby on my back all by myself. I also love that I can front, back, or hip wear with it!! I also have a thin cotton woven but I really hardly use it... it's just not as easy as the others.
