Baby Wearing at the Pool
 
My son absolutely loves the water and I always try to take him to the pool often during the summer. He does really well but does require some extra supervision so I stick pretty close to him.

This year we have our DD and I'm trying to figure out how to manage both kids easily. Are there carriers that you can use while swimming? Would she get too hot?

I've seen slings made for water, I think they are made of mesh or something like that. I have a friend who makes slings and she sells one for the water. Her website is slingpea.com

I have a Zolowear RS, made of solarveil. We LOVED it last summer.

Thank you both!

We have a light-weight ring sling but I was worried it might be ruined in the pool water.

April - Did you find your sling got damaged by pool water at all? What color sling do you have?

I am going to be using a light weight cotton ringl sling all summer in the pool. I have been told the main difference is the amount of tail hanging down on your leg.

It's been suggested to me to wrap the tail fabric around the rings while in the water, that way it doesn't just float around. :thumbsup:
