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.
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!
Babywearing International have developed clear and easy to follow guidelines on the best way to carry your child in a woven wrap or ringsling. There is a separate card to show the optimal positioning for each age group and then for each sling type. These positions show the most comfortable way for you and your child.
