    "Coolest" baby carrier

    Hello fellow parents!
    I'm looking for the coolest baby carrier (temperature wise, not necessarily style-wise although that would be a bonus). This HK weather is so hot and baby and I are just so sweaty and uncomfortable all the time whenever we have to leave the house and there is no air-conditioning. Baby is 2 months now, and I'm looking for something that we can use now until about toddlerhood.
    Thanks in advance for your recommendations!

    Ergo -it even has a cover for the head and you can use it well into the second year

    I agree that ergobaby is the way to go. Get the "performance" model for a lighter fabric. As your baby becomes a toddler you can wear your bub on your side, piggy back style or on your front. Good back & shoulder support bc all weight is distributed onto your hips.

    I have a Boba. It offered my body shape (Big) decent support and is pretty easy to wear and adjust straps by yourself.

    Downside: it is somewhat expensive.

    We have an Ergo Performance. Have used it from day one with my daughter and she's over 18-months-old now. She runs a bit hot too (is usually sweaty) but this carrier is one of the best for HK, I think. It's Ergo so you're going to have to spend some $$ on it but it has been one of our best investments.
    “Many women have described their experiences of childbirth as being associated with a
    spiritual uplifting, the power of which they have never previously been aware …
    To such a woman childbirth is a monument of joy within her memory.
    She turns to it in thought to seek again an ecstasy which passed too soon.”
