What are the best slings for the heat?”- This is a question we get asked all the time as the weather begins to warm up so we’ve put together a guide with tips for baby carrying in the heat and to help you choose the right Oscha Sling for you & your little one this summer.
Type of Sling & Fabric Weight
We suggest choosing a sling in a lighter weight fabric, especially if you wish to wrap multi-layer carries. You could also consider using a slightly thicker wrap for single layer carries, particularly if you are carrying an older child who wants to be up and down a lot, and if you prefer more ‘cush’ on the shoulders. We suggest something between 180 and 260gsm.
While wraps offer a lot of versatility, ring slings are another great choice as they offer a single layer carry, covering less of your body while allowing air to circulate. Also, the long tail can be to cover little legs, or your shoulders, from the sun!
