And why?

I'm looking for a water carrier for this new baby, primarily for the shower but when summer comes I'll definitely be using it in the pool a lot!

Also, any specific brand recommendations would be great.

I don't know about brands but I would prefer a wrap. I find I can get a more secure carry especially when your babe is in the back arching stage.

You could probably make your own from solarveil

my main thought is which carry would you use in a wrap? i mean may sound stupid but i would worry about drowning from the shower head.

i LOVE wraps so much more than slings personally...but i think they would be too tight to your wet body therefore getting water in their face/mouth

What about a kangaroo - less squished into your body than a FWCC

My thoughts exactly. I much prefer wraps, but that exact reason is why I was debating if I should get a sling.

Water ring sling....and this is from a momma who exclusively wraps any other time.

I didn't like the thought of having yards of wet fabric around me so this summer I bought a ring sling from Zany Toes. It's made of the same material as swim trunks & has built in UV protection.
