I am looking at getting an ergo for when baby is born in early Dec. I have an almost 2 year old as well, so figure it'll be good for everyday use while watching my toddler. I used a peanut shell sling with DS from 4 ish months and loved it but didn't like it for a newborn.
Because baby is arriving in summer, I'm worried the infant insert will be too hot (I'm in melb), and noticed the performance model carrier and insert are both lighter. But they are also much more expensive. Can anyone tell me if they think the Performance one is worth the extra, even though it won't be used for sporty activities, hiking or anything too active?
