I've nursed two kids and plan on nursing this one. I've used slings in the past but, they were never easy to nurse in so, I just didn't. I nurse when baby needs it of course, but want a wrap or something that is comfortable to nurse in. I also need it to be lightweight and NOT HOT. I live in AZ and it's terribly hot for half the year. I would like to have hands free nursing options that aren't going to roast both of us.

I also tend to be on the more modest side, especially when in public so, I would like it to cover us if possible. The Moby is out due to size/heat factor. Anything else?

I have no idea, i never knew that you could nurse in a wrap/sling when DD was a baby I would contact your local la leche and see if they have resources. Our local one does a sling fling twice a year where they have tons of different types of baby carriers and help each woman try them on and see what works best for them.

I've nursed in a ring sling, woven, and beco. The most modest is the rs. Beco shows a lot of side boob but its doable.

Wrapsody Bali Breeze is very lightweight and also much less expensive than a Storch, Didy, or Girasol. That was my first wrap.
