Carrier I can use in the water???
 
This summer I am going have 3 kids at the beach by myself (we have 2 or 3 beaches really close by) and my plan is to wear new baby, and that way I can go into the water and still hold Kyla in there and Riley has his water wings, and we never go in too deep, Riley is more of a sand castle kinda kid. What I am wondering is who makes waterproof or water safe carriers? I would prefer to use a soft carrier that is on my front because new baby will only be little (2 or so months old) so that way I can nurse her if needed!

Anyone know of anyone who makes them?? I would prefer a WAHM!!! :goodvibes:

I have a hotslings pool pouch, it is turquoise. I think it is made out of solarveil or something like that

Do you find it is secure? Do you like it? How breathable is it? I don't want baby to overheat!

Do you sew? You can make a solarveil sling easy. you can make 2 slings out of 3 yds of it. there are several companies that sell inexpensive attractive rings made specifically for baby carring. I made 2 solarveil slings last year and they work great in the water, they are strong and dry fast. and they are UV protected.

Yeah, I don't think they would overheat in solarveil so much. :goodvibes: A pouch or RS made of that would be my choice in this situation.

Try a ring sling especially made with solarveil!
