I used a solerveil sling and loved it-it's between 90-100 most days + high humidity in the summer. I don't think they make them any longer (maybe ebay), but there is one called solarweave that makes one like that, and I know others who like the lighter wovens and mei teis for heat. Also gauze slings would be similar to the solar ones I'd think.
I'll be trying a light woven this summer, since I find it hard to switch sides to nurse in my sling, but still have my solerveil to use too :)
I use a linen sling that my little one did great with. I have a friend that used a K'Tan Breeze that worked well for her and now she uses a Kinderpack that has a mesh fabric that breathes well. I hope that helps.
If she is using a stretchy - I found the moby very hot and think the hana baby wrap is a better alternative. If she is using a woven, then maybe a gauze wrap might work ie. Calvin bleu or it might be worth looking at single layer carries like a kangaroo carry. If she likes SSC's the solarweave connecta might be worth a go. HTH - there's a few more bits aNd bobs of information in my post!

I am ALWAYS hot! My favorite sling for the summer is from sleepingbaby.net and it is a very light linen ring sling. I also have a ring sling that can be used in the pool/ocean, made from a soft mesh fabric (think running shorts). THis has been very convenient!
