Default Newborns/Outside Time ??

I will have a 6 week old starting in July. We are outside a lot. I need ideas on where to put the baby..That sounds odd to me but, more then just sitting her in the stroller. I'm thinking I should get one of those beach tent/cabana things for her to rest in. I will of course hold her but, will need to have my hands free. I also have a moby wrap I can use. But, wonder if she will be to hot. I have a portable swing and chair. I could take those out.

Any other ideas?

I like using a beach cabana. I put a pnp inside of it so that baby can sleep safely if necessary.
I also use a bouncy seat for little babies - easy to take inside/outside, and since the fabric seat is open to the air, it doesn't tend to retain all of their body heat.

I use a pop up cabana thing too. Similar to this

My yard is very shady; I mostly just lie babies on a blanket on the grass.
