Babywearing a baby in the summer (or year-round if you live somewhere like Florida!) means knowing how to keep everyone comfortable in hot weather. Here are some suggestions for lighter Summertime wraps, recommendations for cooler carries to use with your wraps, and tips for surviving hot weather wrapping so you don’t have to stay in-doors all Summer with those busy babies!
Tips for Choosing a Wrap
Thin wraps and wraps with open weaves: a thin, airy wrap will be more comfortable than a thick, densely woven wrap and because there is no padding or heavy canvas, has the potential for cooler carrying than many other carriers. I don’t recommend stretchy wraps because most are very warm, and they won’t provide the versatility and comfort throughout the first couple of years that you can get from these woven (non stretchy) wraps! Try Ellevill, Wrapsody Breeze, and EllaRoo woven wraps for the most comfort this Summer.
