So the weather is definitely summery and it's turned hot. In this heat, it's hard not to 'glow' (my French teacher once chastised me for using the term sweat - she would always say 'pigs sweat, men perspire & woman glow'). Glowing or not, I freely admit to being a sweaty bundle in this heat!
But there are a few things you can do to stay as comfortable as possible when carrying (this list isn't exhaustive; if you have your own top tip, please do share).
• Drink or feed often, both of you.
• If you can stay out of the sun, do, especially when it's at its peak.
This week it’s all about meh dai / mei tai style carriers - padded shoulder, wrap-strap shoulder, combo-style, oh and half buckles too.
I’m going to use a slightly tall and solidly built 3 year old as the ‘baby’ in the carrier. Why? Well, it’s relatively easy to imagine a newborn or smaller baby in a mei tai, right?! What’s not so so easy, is to imagine a big weighty toddler in them.
