Thank you tattoo. Unfortunately I'll have a pushchair with me though so an umbrella won't be practical but if good to know it's possible to keep the baby warm.

I'm looking at beco carriers as it's possible to get a cover for them but not sure how suitable they are for a newborn (I'm not expecting a low birth weight as my dd was 8.3lb).
I don't know where those opinions are coming from but ring slings are definitely hands free when worn properly. There are many great youtube tutorials on how to do so. I can link some if you'd like. I loved loved my ring sling for the newborn stage. You can use the extra tail to wrap around baby for another layer of warmth. Also, when they are that tiny a coat will usually fit over both of you. You could also wrap a couple blankets around and tuck into the edges of the rs.
