    Default Baby carriers

    Hi,
    wanting your opinions please! I own the baby bjorn carrier which is pretty good but find it quite hot for both bubs and me to wear, and also her arms seem to have to bend back quite a bit when in it which concerns me.
    thing is we are spending a week in Hong Kong in June so it will be hot and also difficult to use a stroller there.
    Does anyone have suggestions on an easy to use carrier which has breathable fabric which both hubby and I can use on a 6 month old? Maybe one which can be used in a piggy back mode as well as front carry? We already own a ring sling and don't like it, prefer the actual carrier types.

    An Ergo Performance has mesh panels and is great. I've used it in all different conditions and never get too hot.

    I had the BB too and agree with MissieMac - not ideal in front forward position. However I personally find this best when tiny squishes (DS2 is 4wks), because the Ergo feels too big and I found the Hug-a-Bub too hot. I can't master the other wrap styles either!

    I also agree on the BB!

    I love love my Manduca! Worn it with bub in 28 degree weather with no issues whatsoever! And he hates the heat. Has a front and back carry
