    I've just ordered an Ergo Ventus, it's designed to use in hotter climates :-) my bub is due in October in Perth so will be using it in the hotter months here.

    That's fabulous, thanks so much for the suggestions. We had planned to be having this baby in Canberra, and I had bought a moby wrap and an ergo with plans for a ring sling or a wrap as baby got bigger. Best laid plans -right out the window! Ha ha. I guess I'll have to try the ergo and see how we find it as far as the heat. Hopefully baby is happy to be worn as I'd love to try a woven - just a little intimidated by the tying and wrapping at this stage to be honest.

    Thats really strange, they approved me after a couple of days and I don't know anyone in the group. I'll let them know one FB.

    We live near Cairns and I have a number of carriers/slings.
    What works for me is the breeze baby ring-sling. I'm not a fan of polyester but this is light and made of a mesh fabric and sooooooo easy to use.

    I also have a BabyBjorn made from a mesh fabric that hubby liked to wear. And no they are not all that bad if worn for a short time and with bub facing mum/dad only, despite what some babywearing groups say. They would have been recalled looooong time ago if they were.

    Plus I also have a heavy woven cotton ring-sling from my sister ... too hot. And a kangaroo care t-shirt, only for winter. And a home-made adapted meitai with clips made from corduroy cotton that is my all time favourite for using at home.

    There are so many babywearing options out there; you are bound to find one that suits you and bub.

    @btmac one of the admins responded that if your security settings are too high and they can't determine if you live in the area then they ignore. I can pm anyone who's interested the admins names and they're happy for you to pm themselves directly

    @Heids89 that'd be lovely, yes please! I'd really like to go along to a catchup where you can look at different types of carriers mine could have been left because I still have my city as Canberra. ETA to cairns - Wednesday! We're on the road, ha ha.

    I know what you're saying re the bjorn. However, there are bag style slings that have caused/been linked to infant death that are still widely available as well as similar slings that are very difficult to safely position a newborn in that can be bought everywhere. So just because it hasn't been recalled doesn't mean it's 100% safe.
    With bjorns, they are safe- just not optimal. They aren't comfortable for the wearer for very long and don't hold baby in the most comfy position. There is a simple way to make it more comfy for all though- http://www.fineandfairblog.com/2013/...carf-hack.html

    The interesting thing is my daughter has hip dysplasia and her ortho recommended a baby bjorn for carrying. We have one with extra support and I can wear it for hours (and literally do).

    I'm always reluctant to express a view on carriers as I know a lot of people have strong views on the baby bjorn carriers. Just another view I guess.

    All I've read indicates the legs dangling right down position isn't good for hips/spinal development. I don't believe it will permanently damage anyone- just that it's not optimal. I'm not an orthapedic specialist though so I'm sure yours had their reasons- I was speaking in a general sense.
    The other think I don't like is the big price tag that goes with them when they only go up to 11kg- that was my last baby's weight at 9 months! I like wraps and carriers to last a lot longer and I don't think my shoulders would cope in a basic bjorn past 3 months- but if they suit your needs then go for it!
