As the weather warms up, you may be looking for a cooler babywearing option. The Baby K’Tan Breeze has the 2 loops of the traditional Baby K’Tan, but half of the loops are soft knit, while the other half are breezy mesh. This will help the air to flow through the carrier and between the wearer and the child being carried.
Any carrier is going to be hotter than not carrying your child, however, because you will have 2 bodies pressed together. But this is a good option if you have a newborn and are looking for an easy carrier option for the summer. Check the sizing guidelines carefully. This carrier is important to get it sized correctly. It should fit snugly. It should seem like the baby won’t fit in. The carrier has some stretch to it. If it is sized too big, it will stretch too much and the baby will not feel secure.
