Thanks for your advice! Do you have a link for the fitted pouches at Chic slings?

Hmm...I have really sensitive skin so I am wondering if solarweave would be better. Anyone else find solarveil fabric uncomfortable or rough when wearing? Has anyone tried a solarweave sling? Thanks!

Great advice, thanks...but I don't think I want to try learning a wrap with a newborn...I have no clue how to use them. Too bad they didn't make a sling with that!

I am spinning my head around, lol! There are so many options. I am due this Summer and want a sling that is going to be cool and breathable yet offer protection from the sun so I don't have to lather the baby in sunscreen. I am anticipating spending quite a bit of time outdoors with two toddlers besides. Also, I don't see myself going to the beach or pool much. So, my questions are: What would one recommend for me? And if that recommendation is a solarweave...
