    @Tiny Dancer the fidella fusion is 100% cotton so it's very breathable.
    Much lighter than the original Ergo.

    All ergo carriers except the adapt require the use of an insert with young babies. I'm not sure how old your little one is but if you'd still need it, I'd avoid the ergo as the inserts are fiddly and really hot.

    I have a lillebaby all seasons and it's fantastic. No insert required and super comfy and supportive. Comes with a lumbar support pad which is great for extra back support. Arm straps can be crossed if preferred. It's my dd's favourite carrier

    If you prefer the look of a carrier made from a woven wrap I'd highly recommend looking at Ankalia's range of Up carriers. They are so comfy (and their patterns are beautiful) and have a newborn adapter so again no insert.
    @JustJaq Doing up the chest clip is easy - pop bub in carrier and pull the panel up and straps over your shoulders. Make sure the straps are really loose before you start then reach up behind and do up the chest clip - you'll be able to reach easily if your arm straps are loose - then tighten arm straps once it's clipped up.

    I have a hug a bub, and it is fantastic and I loved it when we lived in Canberra. It's just too hot for us to use it up here in QLD. I also struggle to get it on if we are already out - DS is a runner, and I don't have a double pram.

    Manduca. Absolutely loved it when ds was a bub. He suffered from reflux so this was a saviour. Make sure you try a few on, with so many out there im sure you will find one that is comfortable.

    Is the manduca suitable for tropical climates (near enough anyway). I'd love to try them. Unfortunately there isn't anywhere within about 4 hours for me to try them.

    Do you know if there is a local babywearing group near you? A babywearing meet would be a great place to go to try a few different carriers. A lot have lending libraries too so you can borrow a carrier for a week or two to really test out and see if you like it.

    Thank you @rosey82 and @besha.

    I will check out the cross-shoulder options, and see if i can try again on store with the super loose arm straps.

    I have just bought a Hug a Bub for SE QLD climate, as I had a Sleepy Wrap for my other two and we all loved it! I do wonder about whether it will be too hot, but bub is coming next week and I'm thinking it will be okay over the winter months when bub is little anyway; after that I am definitely considering a Manduca - it just looks better than the Ergo IMO... sorry, haven't really answered your question, just my rambling thoughts. x
