    I have the original but I'm worried about using it in the Sa summer, so if you were in a warner climate I'd definatly look at the own that's meant to be cooler ( I'm not sure what one that is though sorry!)

    i've used the original ergo through an SA summer
    its hot, but do-able (to be fair - everythings hot in summer ) - if you're not due till march, i'd try to find something else for the first few weeks, but by 2-3months the weather would be lots cooler anyway :-)

    mysol and didytai are two particular types of 'mei-tai' (which is a similar shape to the ergo, but less structured, less material - and in my opinion, more comfortable).

    If you're on facebook - there's also a facebook group called 'adelaide babywearers'. we do regular catchups, and you could come along and see some of the other types of carriers that exist

    No.
    But neither can the ergo or the manduca.

    to the best of my knowledge, the only carrier that allows for optimal hip development and comfort while facing the parent, that also has the ability to be narrowed in the crotch to become forward facing crotch dangler is the beco Gemini or the beco butterfly ( can never remember which one-but one of those two!)

    No carriers or wraps should be used for outward facing, unfortunately there is no way of doing this without putting the baby in a less than optimal position.

    And my suggestion for the Op is the Manduca Slightly lighter fabric, and inbuilt newborn insert so nowhere near as hot as Ergo + Big cushy insert

    Just saw this, yup im in south aust, due in feb with no 2 and I'm worried bubs will get too hot. I used it on the gold coast last oct (so not heaps hot) with dd and even she got very sweaty, that was without the infant insert. I love the ergo though, but if you want to use it alot during summer look at something a bit thinner/ more breathable then the original one

    The performance one supposedly allows for more airflow with its fabric but it's bigger than the original, higher up the back. I only have the original but was able to compare both in shop. Have you considered Ergo organic? I suppose it would be cooler as it is all cotton. I didn't get one (even if I prefered it over original) since it costs more.
    I do love our Ergo. Keeps bub warm in this cooler region. But We used it overseas in a tropical country and it did get a little hot in there. Just had to let him wear lighter clothing!
