The sun's out in the Lake District! And it's pretty warm, and forecast to stay like this for a few days! Carrying another warm body next to yours is the best feeling in the world, but it can start to feel hot when the temperature's high. To help you and your baby keep cool, I've put together a list of top tips for carrying your baby in a sling on warm sunny days:
* a damp muslin between you and your baby can help keep you both cool
* carrying an umbrella (because you have your hands free, after all!) can provide shade and respite from the sun
Some carriers are designed to allow airflow around you and your baby, like the Moby Aria or the Beco Toddler Cool Carrier which both have a mesh panel. Others, like Soul ring slings , are a single layer of fabric and made from lightweight natural fibres like cotton or linen. Your local sling library can help you learn to use a ring sling, or offer other suggestions for summer carrying.
