Perfecting Your Summer Babywearing Style with Hugpapa!

Hey Hugpapa fam, summer's here! It's the perfect time for pool days, backyard adventures, and exploring with your little one. But with all that sunshine, keeping cool while babywearing becomes extra important. Don't worry, we've got you covered!

We asked our amazing Mom & Dads for their favorite summer babywearing tips, and know-how to create your ultimate guide to staying comfy and safe.

Keeping Your Carry Cool:

  • Lightweight & Breathable Carriers:  (This is where Hugpapa shines!) Look for carriers made from natural fibers like cotton, hemp, or linen. These fabrics allow air to circulate and wick away moisture, keeping you both happy.
  • Dress for the Heat:  Loose, breezy clothes are your best friend. For your little one, lightweight clothes with good sun coverage are key. (Remember:  the carrier adds a layer, so factor that in) Don't forget sun protection! Hats, baby-safe sunscreen, and a carrier with a hood (like our Sleeping Hood) are lifesavers.

Hydration is Key:

Summer + babywearing = staying hydrated! Pack plenty of water for you and hydrating drinks for your little one too of course.


Finding Your Shade:

Seek out shady areas whenever possible. Just remember to keep their face and airway clear!


Take Breaks:

Listen to your body and your little one's cues. Find cool, shaded spots to relax and rehydrate. Sometimes, taking the carrier off for a bit can make a big difference.

Cooling Down Strategies:

  • Damp Cloth:  A damp cloth is a lifesaver for wiping down sweaty brows and necks. You can even use the tail of your ring sling for a quick cool-down.
  • Portable Fan:  Beat the heat with a neck fan or a spray bottle fan.

By following these tips, you can conquer summer babywearing with confidence! Now get out there and make some awesome memories with your little one.

Happy babywearing!
