A RS is good for short trips, I find anything more than 30 minutes it hurts. I bought the frog tog, but they need to be able to breathe to actually work well, do unfortunately aren’t very effective sandwiched between you. I use my ergo, but have only really been out in 25-30°c, anything more than that, it’s just too hot to be outside LOL.

ThePrincessBride10612:  I don’t have one (yet!). This random woman was showing me hers and she had great things to say about it. I definitely want to try one. My only thing is we don’t baby wear that much!  I have a peanut shell sling that you can do a hip carry with, so I’m going to see if LO even likes doing that first before I buy a ring sling. She had a sakura bloom and highly recommended it.

I read good things about the Baby Bjorn One in mesh (not cotton).  I’m still pregnant, but we’ve started researching carriers.  DH is very excited to use a carrier, but gets hot super easily.  But we haven’t gone to check it out yet.  That was just based on online reviews.

HopefulForLittleOne:  You’ll find that baby bjorn’s will likely get very uncomfortable after about 10lbs. They’re just not ergonomically friendly.

I just wore my nephew for most of the weekend in a Tula… pretty comfy, but we did get hot.  It was 93 here all weekend, so everyone was hot.  🙂

awakemysoul:  According to reviews, that’s not an issue with the One, but was a problem with other Baby Bjorn carriers.  The One has more supports so it’s not all in the shoulders.  They made a bunch of changes from their other carriers, for example a baby can be front facing without crotch dangling.  Again, I haven’t tried it.  I just read great things about it in Baby Bargains, then read some online reviews (which is where I learned that there was a mesh version that’s better for warm weather).  DH and I are going to go to store that sells carriers to try it (and others).

ThePrincessBride10612:  Tula’s are so adorable! I tried one on though and it didn’t fit me well 🙁  I love my Beco Gemini, but it’s probably not going to be any cooler than the ergo.  Too bad she wasn’t big enough for a back carry – that might make it slightly cooler!

I love my Sollybaby wrap. It is essentially a Moby, but lightweight and durable.

ThePrincessBride10612:  Try Boba or Boba Air.  I’m not a mom, but I’ve read awesome reviews.  

The biggest complaint people tell me about the Ergo is the infant insert is hot and costs extra. The Boba’s comes with the infant insert, and it’s very small.
