Carrier for Hot Weather?

Hi Everyone I'm looking for a soft structured carrier that will be lightweight and not too heavy in the summer - I'm leaning toward the Beco Gemini. I overheat really easily, and it looks like my LO is he same. Anybody have any recommendations? TIA!

Re: Carrier for Hot Weather?

  • Have heard good things about the Becco Gemini from a mom in my moms group, however she didn't say anything specific to heat. Here is a review with info on the carrier (I found it more useful than just amazon reviews, have not yet made a decision on a new carrier though becausey old one that is front only, is uncomfortable now that my daughter is approaching 20 pounds)

    Another mom suggested the abocve site as a good reference. The woman authoring the site sells carriers, however she has a decent comparison chart (link found within the page linked.

  • I live in South Texas and my son and I were both super hot boxes. I couldn't wear him with a beco gemini. It was too hot for me. I used my baby ktan breeze.

  • Haha the only reason why I clicked this thread was to hope youre not considering the gemini! I tried it and immediatwly felt like I was wearing a hot sweater. I went w the beco butterfly,  which is similar to the newer soleil.

  • That's really good to know about that Ergo performance! I'm going to look at it with the sale that Target is having this week on Ergo!
