I've been trying to do my research, but all it's doing is confusing me more.
I'm due in July, and would like a wrap/sling/carrier I can use more or less from the beginning. There seem to be a lot of recommendations for moby wraps for newborns, but they look very hot for midsummer--although it looks like the baby would be cool enough, I hate the heat as it is! I've seen several people suggest that ring slings are hard with newborns. Having checked out an ergo, that seems like it would be awfully hot for me and baby (though I may want something along those lines as the weather cools.) So I am left wondering if there is a best option out there?
I'm a FTM, and I'll have to learn this as I go. No convenient babies for me to practice with!
I'm also short, shortwaisted, and on the heavy side (but not busty), if that matters for fit.
Anyone have any suggestions? Not killing my wallet would be an excellent perk, too. :)
