I'm also trying to figure out my best option for a nice summer carrier. I love wraps and SSCs (DH's favorite). We have a moby and Ergo but they are both dark colored and heavier fabrics.

Any recommendations on nice breathable carriers for summer?

I'm looking to get a k'tan breeze. I've never had one before (love my ergo), but it looks nice for a summer baby.

Re: Favorite things for a warm weather baby

This is an excellent question! I have been wondering the same thing. I'm thinking mostly a diaper and shirt/onesie, muslin blankets, hats and possible a full rash guard type outfit for the beach. We live in CA, HOT summers.

Re: Favorite things for a warm weather baby

Just jumping in to see the answers. I have two winter babes (Jan/Nov). I love my A&A blankets too. I never liked onsies with my CD's before. So wondered what people thought about summer babes.

Just remember that carrying your baby requires whatever is comfortable for you and never put up with judgement from ridiculous other mothers who are carrying in the 'latest' carrier when in fact, they should be putting the money from their diaper and carrier collection into an education fund or paying 3 extra mortgage payments. Other women make me laugh hysterically - you guessed it. I am the mom who tells it like it is. 100% honesty (diplomatic).

I second the A&A blankets. Also, you can make a swaddle blanket out of an old sheet you have. I have seen women make nursing covers out of sheets for summer babies. I like diaper and shirt with light swaddle blanket.
For the light carrier, if you like sling carriers Balboa Baby makes one that is out of light material. Also, the Stretchy Wrap is a light material version of the Moby. LOVE my moby for my newborn babies!

There is also the Beachfront Baby Water Wrap for summer/water. You can get it on Nicki's Diapers.

Re: Favorite things for a warm weather baby

Someone just told me about the Boba Air - I was thinking Ergo Sport, but that one is cheaper...I'd get a wrap, but they look too complicated and I don't know anyone to teach me, so gonna pass.

I have the Boba Air and like it. I haven't tested it in the summer yet. It's nylon so I'm not sure how breathable it is compared to cotton. Also, it won't work for newborns as it doesn't be enough structure to support a newborn.

Re: Favorite things for a warm weather baby

What great ideas ladies! This is my 3rd baby but 1st in warm weather. I haven't unpacked the stored baby boxes yet, hoping to be able to use what we've got!
