I have never tried a woven wrap but would really like to try one. Lets say you have $100 to blow, you live in hot and humid Florida, you have a clingy baby who hated the mei tai (hehe), fifteen lbs at 3 months and needed it for housework, what would you buy? Help a girl out. I have researched this too much, my head is spinning. And the closest thing I have to a wrap is a water/mesh ring sling, which he really likes, but not as comfy for me...other than showers.

Thanks

Oh..and you are only 5'2 and husband is 5'10 and likes to carry (a lot--we are always fighting over who carries him).

We are using a soft structured carrier that isn't very good now that he's heavier. We are also considering a Boba 3G.

Re: Woven wrap for hot weather

I would love to know as well. I just bought cotton gauze wrap from babyette. It is really airy and lightweight, but it is not forgiving (as in if you don't wrap it neatly it really hurts your shoulder). Would love to hear suggestion for any other wraps that's nice and cushy and comfortable and affordable...

Re: Woven wrap for hot weather

I have a Bali Breeze and I like it. It's gauze, so not cushy, but it is lightweight. If you spread the wrap on your shoulders it helps it not to dig. They're pretty affordable (like ~$80). I've heard good things about Colimacon et Cie wraps, too. They're also under $100. My Storch is cushier than my Bali Breeze and I used it last summer, but I'm not in FL, so it's not quite so hot and sticky here.

Edit: EllaRoo wraps are supposed to be thinner as well. Never tried one myself, but a lot of people like them.

I decided to first get the boba to see how that works out. But I think a wrap would also be nice to have. They seem to fit different needs, anyway. It has been difficult figuring out something that won't bake us in a couple of months. We might have to stay indoors most of the time. He gets hot very easily, but he also loves to be up and eye level.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Re: Woven wrap for hot weather

With the budget it might take some searching but Ellaroo are supposed to be good for hot weather. Vatanai are also highly regarded for when it is warm. Didymos waves are good as well. If you get a size 6 in something your husband won't mind wearing then you could both wear him

Gauze wraps are great for summer too but they won't be as supportive for as long!

My vatanai is super lightweight and breathable.
