Please give advice or product advice on babywearing a newborn for those of us in ridiculously hot climates . I'm in central Texas where we have a record busting over 70 days of 100 plus degree weather.  I have a 22 month old when his brother will be here, and no family support for taking care of two under two full-time , 24/7.I *really* need to find a baby wearing option ASAP being 37 weeks. 


I have a Moby, but too darn hot. I also only wore my oldest when he was 5 months old, so need something newborn friendly. I guess a wrap is the best bet? Any suggestions? How about making our own from gauze cloth? 



Thanks in advance!

A guaze wrap is a great idea.  Make your own, or one from wrapsody.  Another good choice is a linen ringsling.
