    Default Recommend me a wrap/carrier for the pool!

    DD2 is 7 weeks old and Sydney is heating up. We have a backyard pool. Can anyone recommend a wrap or carrier suitable for wearing her in water? Any tips or recommendations appreciated!

    I had a breeze baby wrap I used to wear at the beach. It might work sitting by the pool. Just because it's a fabric that can get wet and dry off quickly. Not the best sling, a bit fiddly, but if it's just for beach or pool it might be ok.

    I wish I was crafty but I'm not! :haha: So basically is it ring slings that are best for water?

    Atropos how did you go, have you tried bubs in the water yet? I don't have a pool but am wondering about taking bub to the local pool when it starts getting hotter. So maybe when she is around 10-12 weeks old.. But am concerned about all the chlorine on her skin and any other hygiene issues.. Anyone have any advice?

    I read that it's ok from about 6 weeks but haven't taken the plunge as yet! Our pool is still way too cold, but I was thinking of the local pool too. I imagine the chlorine would kill all the main bugs? But yes, skin is a concern too...
