Slings for the pool?

Postby EnigmaFish » 04 Jul 2014, 19:58

Any recommendations? I'm hopefully going to get a membership to a swimming pool soon. With the new baby imminent, I was thinking that the best way to take both her and Kleintje is if I could put baby in a sling in the pool.
Any suggestions? At the moment, I have a Moby and a BabyHawk.

Haven't got one, but I keep seeing references to the breeze baby mesh ring sling for swimming.

I don't have any recommendations, but I would say check with your pool before you buy anything - I've heard stories of some pools not being very happy with babies in slings in the water.

That's a really good point, I hadn't thought of that.
Hrm. Bit of a conundrum, then: if I can't take baby in the sling, then I can't really join the pool. I'll have a word with them.

And even without the sling a lot of pools I have been in in the UK have a rule about one adult per child under a certain age. My local one used to have a rule of under 7s needing one adult per child.
