    I have a Moby style wrap that I bought off ebay. It's a stretch jersey material. It is quite a warm day today and my LO was really hot inside the wrap and he was only wearing a vest. Is this normal for these style wraps? I really want to be able to wear him, I also have a pouch style bag but he ends to use this with OH and a Mothercare rucksack style one but we will use that when he is older.

    My LO is just in a nappy today - I think that he would be too hot in a wrap or even a carry rucksack styleee xx

    He is in just his nappy at home but we went out and I thought he may be better with the wrap than the pram.

    I had my LO in his Ergo earlier in just his vest and he was quite hot too. It's ok for walking in the shade but I think we'll be using the pram for hot walks until he's a bit older and better with the heat.

    I would really advise against the pouch style, google "bag slings recall" for more info.

    Many women find that a ring sling works best for hot weather or even a mei tai.

    They are fine for newborns, it's just that most prefer a wrap. If you search google images for newborn and mei tai, you'll find lots of newborn pics :)

    I had the same issue today with my Moby, if I don't wear my wrap I have to hold LO over my shoulder with one hand and run around afyer my toddler with the other as he doesn't want to be put down. Even in just a nappy he was hot. In the end I put him in the baby bjorn as at least his legs were free. I have a mei tai but his legs seem too long to be in frog position.
