In all seasons, layers are the best way to dress! For the parent, I would recommend light layers – normal indoor clothes, then put on sling, pop baby in and then you have the option to add extra layers, such as cardigan/fleece or jacket that can be put on or taken off as needed, without disturbing baby in the sling.
Can a baby get too hot in a sling?

How many layers should baby wear in carrier?
The usual guide is that your baby should wear one layer more than you would feel comfortable in. Thinner, breathable layers may be more comfortable than one thick layer, and will also help with good weight distribution and fit in a carrier.
Can you sit down with baby in sling?

What should babies wear under snowsuits?
Start with a long-sleeved onesie, pants and socks or a sleeper, and then add a sweater or zip-up sweatshirt and, finally, a snowsuit. Ears, hands and feet are most at risk for frostbite, she says, so make sure they’re well covered.
Do black baby carriers get hot?
Black and darker colors will absorb the sun’s heat, and your baby could potentially overheat. Some carriers have various features for added comfort, such as padded shoulder straps. Also, you will also want to make sure the carrier you choose has a wide seat to support your baby’s hip health.
How can I keep my baby cool when wearing baby?
Water on the skin can also help keep you both cool. Some people like to carry a little squirty bottle of water for the occasional spritz on the face or feet. If you’re really hot and already sweaty, you might as well pop a cool, damp flannel or muslin on your chest between you and baby. Take a break.
