Okay so my son and I already have the same heating capacity as a furnace. Baby wearing in the humid heat of VA's summer is nearly unbearable for us. Are there any good tips on keeping cool?

Tank tops and cool drinks?? I don't know what else one could do. You could minimally use a strollers on the unbearable days.

We use an umbrella for shade, dress super lightly and I use a thin cotton woven wrap that is relatively breathable. I find back carries cooler too

One tip is to keep fabric between you and your baby. Skin-to-skin in the mid-Atlantic summers is brutal.

best wears for babies during summer.

1) Ring sling tails can provide additional coverage and sun protection for your baby
2) Fabrics made specifically for warm weather, like linen and mesh, are breathable
3) Wraps can be a great option for summer since there are so many different ways to use them.

Baby strollers

Hii, you can use baby strollers in this case. Keep the baby in that and pick him up only when you need to feed him. Or if he wants to cuddle you then you must wear cotton clothes and put the same on your baby not to make him uncomfortable. And the most feasible solution is switch on the A.C in extreme summer days.
