Is there a sling that works like the Moby but is thinner/not so warm?

Well I have really missed my moby these last couple of days but it has just been too hot - so I've ordered a hana baba. Hope it works! Thanks for the advice.

It's a bit harder because they're less forgiving of slight mis-adjustments but really not as bad as I feared smile .

Thanks, I'll check those out - is it much harder to tie a non-stretchy one?

There are thinner stretchy wraps - the Hana Baby Wrap, Wrapsody Stretch etc are all considerably thinner than the Moby.

If you can put up with the slightly greater learning curve of learning to tie a non-stretchy wrap, then the Calin Bleu Gauze or Wrapsody Bali Breeze are lovely and thin and cool.

I love my moby but in this heat it's a bit uncomfortable! I haven't worn it outside the house since the heatwave started as I'm paranoid about dd overheating. I love everything else about it though, so I'm after a wrap I can use/tie in the same way but made of much thinner fabric. Does such a thing exist? I know there are thin ones with no stretch, are they much harder to use than a moby? DD is 3 months but little (11.5 lbs). Thanks!

Also, am v poor so anything for under £50 or that I've got a good chance of getting secondhand would be good!
