Please help which SSC is the coolest?

Hi I am looking into a SSC and I am considering Ergo sport ,performance, and so far Boba 3g . I live in N. Cali and it is still in the 100s. I want to front and later back carry. My DD is 16 lbs and 5mo. I also want to be able to nurse her in there if I can. Mainly I want comfort and it to last till she is a toddler. If there is any other carrier that meets the bill please let me know.

PS is there trick to cooling down if the carrier is hot?

Thanks all!

I use Action Baby Carriers in Tucson, az
and The trick to staying cool is every once and a while to curve and have a little space for the wind to blow through between you and baby. I usually only need a minute or to cool down.

The lightest, coolest carrier I have found is a TMD solarweave full buckle carrier. I got mine from Zerberts. It is really thin and light plus has an SPF of 50. I can carry my 25 lb 2 year old easily in it. It is rated to go up to 35 lbs.

The Onya outback is a great carrier for hotter weather. I love mine and it keeps pretty cool.

I live in Sacramento and I use a Boba but an older one. I have had it for about three years. I love it I can even put my four year old in it if he is sleeping but do not usually. I do not think it is hot to wear.
