So I wear Ember in the Moby, but its starting to getting warmer and she gets really hot up against my chest. I think she gets too hot and then wants out. I take her out for like 5 minutes to cool down and then put her back in. What do you do to keep baby cool when its warm out? Should I try a different hold? I use the newborn hug hold.
Yeah, I use the hug hold and the newborn hug hold, but it seems like Ember is a furnace! I'm going to try wearing a tshirt instead of a tank so we aren't skin to skin ( her face on my chest) to see if that is cooler. It was only 70 so it wasn't too warm, but Ember was all sweaty after about 30 minutes. Haven't had a problem before.
I had a July baby, and he was always diaper naked inside the wrap :-)
Keeping a layer of fabric between the two of you does help a lot. There's a reason you huddle together naked to keep from freezing to death.
And to those looking for a lighter wrap for summer, just a heads up- if the fabric is *too*lightweight, you run the risk of it digging into your skin painfully. I have a gauze wrap I never wear because it digs.
