post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
we are having another baby : and i didnt start carrying ds in carriers until he was about 5 months old. Here is what i Have for him:

an ergo
a wahm mei tai
a solerveil RS

What would be the best thing to carry the newborn (due in May) in Texas Heat in?

I'd really love a woven storch wrap but i'm afraid we'd be too hot

any suggestions?

Very hot here and I carried ds in the MT daily from birth (still do )

Gypsymama/Wrapsody water wrap, or Solarweave Connecta.

I'm a MT fan personally, but the ring sling is on the cooler side too.

I am not in Texas but it was in the 100's in the weeks after my DD1 was born. I had a Taylormade Solarveil ring sling that was very cool for those first couple of months. Plus it protected her from the sun. I used it with my DD2 as well but she was born later in the year so it wasn't as hot. There are some on sale here http://www.babyslingoutlet.com/p-112...eil-sling.aspx
with an additional 20% off.

I used a Mammas Milk Solarveil sling and a New Native Carrier during the summer when we lived in Texas. Both were great to keep cool.

Gypsy Mama (now "wrapshody") Bali Breeze wrap. FABULOUS! I wore DS in the heat of Baltimore August (which is darn hot & humid) for hours on end & it was wonderful. LOOOOVE that wrap! Great distributor at www.handsfreebaby.com (She's a trained BW instructor too!)

I'm in S. Texas and I used my cotton hotsling all summer long with no problems.

San Antonio and I used my Maya Wrap and mei tai. Still do. And last week I was in Uvalde (South-er TX) and used some polyester in an African-style wrap (under armpits, tied in front) because I forgot my mei tai! It worked great!

the storch will definitely be too warm.
i found a great linen carrier from Laos, it is a little like a podeagi, perfect for humid, warm weathers like Laos.
i have no idea where to get it in the US but here is a pic ;

among those cited, i would use the MT in the back, even from very early on, as long as it supports her head well.

We're most comfy in the Florida heat (and any other time) in the Solarveil RS.

what kind of New Native Carrier did you use in the heat?
I was looking at their webiste and the product looks great. Just want to find one to wear here in the heat as well. thanks

I have carrier from Laos (I bought in Luang Prabang - Hmong tribe), but the straps are very long on those, it's a lot of fabric around you.

I had an organic cotton pouch in natural twill. I got mine off their clearance list for almost half the price. It was maybe an inch smaller than it was supposed to be, but worked perfectly.

Yeah, DS just wore a onesie. Our solarveil sling didn't seem too rough. Not as soft as cotton, but DS didn't seem bothered by it at all. It actually softened up over time after getting it wet.

I would never live a day with a young child without my solarveil Bamberoo MT. I bet you could find some on TBW for pretty cheap since its cold everywhere else...

When she was you we used a solarviel ringsling from Zolowear....

But for a newborn, i might just find a lightweight fabric pouch or ringsling.
