What size wrap?

A little about me that may be relevant:
-I have a ring sling that I love but want something more supportive for longer hauls with the baby (now 2 months and almost 12lbs).
-I am 5'9" and weigh 154.
-I mostly want to do two shoulder carries with the wrap (as my ring sling covers my single shoulder carries, and I may try a shorty later if I love wrapping).
-I live in Texas and that = hot weather

Here is the wrap I am looking at. Reviews compare it in texture to the Storch Inka. It is thin-ish and 100% cotton. Do you think it is a good choice? Is 6 my safest size?

Re: What size wrap? What do you think of the Little Frog wrap?

I would say a 6. Is there a babywearing group near you? That would allow you to try different ones. I've never tried the little frog wrap, but it does say on their website that it's best for little babies because it's thin and delicate. That might not take you through toddlerhood. It might get uncomfortable once your baby gets bigger. I've heard Leos are great first/only wraps. Check out thebabywearer. It's amazing. I'm looking for a cool weather wrap right now cause my Dydimos stripes and Natibaby bamboo are getting hot, although, it's probably more humid where you live. I used to live in Houston, I know how yucky it can get.

You definitely don't need a size 7 (5.2), you need to order the 4.6 size, which would be a size 6. I think this is a newer wrap that doesn't have many reviews. I actually just pre-ordered their linen rainbow because I'm a sucker for pretty rainbows and these wraps are SUPER cheap. Go for it, but in a size 6
