Baby wearing in summer

So this is my 4th baby but with my older 3 I used a backpack carrier or a snugride carrier. I've never used a wrap until now. I love how easy it is to put on and there are no buckles to pinch baby, but it was only 75 degrees out and we were both sweating. How am I going to make it through a Florida Summer? Any tips on staying cool?

I got a gauze wrap from little peepers on etsy and it is soooo light and I know it will be so much better than using an ergo this summer with my baby on the way.

Maybe try the Ergo 360 Cool Air Mesh carrier? It's same as the original, but is made out of mesh for maximum ventilation.

Re: Baby wearing in summer

I have a wrapsody breeze and a linen ring sling. Both are thin and light and should help me get through summer with my new squish.

I'm in southern California. I had this same question and ended up getting a linen ring sling. It's perfect

Where did you find the best deal for a linen baby carrier? Best quality?

For linen ring slings, either Sakura Bloom or Sleeping Baby Productions.
Wrapsody is also making ring slings now out of a cotton/linen blend; I haven't tried them yet but based on Wrapsody's other products, I'm sure they will be good quality and cool in the heat.
