Best carrier for a 2 yr old when it's hot? Front carry..

I am looking for ideas on how to front carry a 28lb 2 year old without sweating to death yeah right huh...

I have a black Ergo original, and we're dying in the heat! (not in direct sun, just when it's hot in general, so I guess the color doesn't have much to do with it) I was thinking of getting a Bobaair but I hear they're not good for older babes on the front. I know putting him on my back might help, but the issue is he wants to nurse, and he is not fond of being on my back, where he can't access milk

Thanks for any ideas!

oh, and contrary to what my siggy says, we might have another baby in the next few years, so I might be willing to make a bit of an investment

We adore our Toddler Kinderpack. DH can still wear DD on his front at 3 years old, 36lb, and 3'5"+.

Good to know your 3 yr old fits in the toddler still.

OP-DS is 27mon and i still wear him in front. Of course back is more comfortable, but he likes to sleep in front.

Toddler bamberoo with Solarveil. It's huge. I can wear my almost three year old and he's about thirty pounds and thirty eight inches tall and the carrier is big, I think the body is twenty inches tall

She was about 3. Love it! It's the Taylor Made ringsling in the cotton mesh.

They are totally worth it. I have never tried a kindepack so I can't comment on those BUT bamberoo is hands down the best carrier I have tried. I have owned 3 of them and am trying to get my hands on one again.
