I would like to use a wrap while Squeak is tiny, but the Boba I experimented with this weekend felt kind of heavy and because she will be tiny right at the peak of summer, I'm trying to find something that might be a little lighter or at least would not make us burst into flames.

I found a Happy Baby wrap on Amazon that claims it's good for hot weather, but I was wondering if anyone here had good suggestions?

What about a water wrap. They are a light weight mesh type material

look at the Baby K'tan Breeze. It's like a wrap, but it's pre-tied so it's already less fabric than the boba or moby. also their breeze is half mesh.

Good luck pls post update if you find a light one. I've had similar issues. I had a winter baby and boba is too hot

I believe Wrapsody Bali Breeze is super popular for a lightweight but supportive wrap! I really want one. I've heard they are even good for toddlers. I have a mesh one and I admit I get sore after a little while of wearing it. It wouldn't be something I could use for more than an hour or so. I find the fabric diggy.
Keakie and MamaSkunk like this.

I second the K'Tan Breeze. I had one when Rylie was small during the summer and it was really light weight and comfortable. And it's easy to use since it's already "pre-tied" for you. As baby gets bigger though, you might want to look into a woven wrap or SSC.

I've heard good things about the Bali Breeze being lightweight. I've only used the Boba, though - and it DOES get hot above 80 degrees (my dd is a late August baby).

I had a Bali Breeze and it was super scratchy and didn't get soft at all. They are very lightweight though so that's another option if you want something with a little bit more flexibility than the K'tan.
