I am planning a beach trip with my 23-24 pound young toddler, who adores any and all water. She hasn't yet been to the ocean, and I was thinking that wearing her in would be a good introduction. I currently have a Hotslings pouch, which we love for hip carries, and a Pikkolo (also a Zolowear ring sling that hasn't really worked for us). It seems like a water sling might be a good investment. Would you all suggest going with something like a Sleeping Baby Productions mesh ring sling, or do you think I could wear my cotton Hotslings into the water and put the money I'd have spent on a water sling toward a woven ring sling or wrap? I would be grateful for any BTDT advice!
Thank you all!
