Title can't make it more clear! =) I'm going sling shopping. I used to have a new native, and loved it. I'm interested in something similar for when I take my kids to the water park this summer and will have a brand new baby in tow. I'd like something that's very easy/discreet to breastfeed in. Water safeness (is that even a word?) isn't mandatory, but would be nice to have for dryability (I'm on a word-inventing role today!)
Thoughts? I don't necessarily need to go with another new native, or even a pouch. I accept that there are many wonderful new products since my last child was born half a decade ago, and am eager to discover new things. =)
A solarveil ring sling? I think Sleeping Baby Productions might be able to make you one. Zolowear also makes one, but the shoulder style is difficult to get a hang of (I speak from experience!).
Gypsy Mama also makes a waterproof wrap, which would be great for a newborn!

IIRC, solarveil was discontinued, so those SBP slings are NOT easy to get ahold of. (I own one, thank heavens, that I've had for years.)
OT, Zolowear shoulders are horrendous! I took the seam out that was about 6" from the rings to get enough spread to cup my shoulder--much better now :)

I would wash it at least once afterward too because the fabric that was folded and sewn down is a little inflexible. Once the seam is down, though, you can get the rings into corsage position and avoid the riding up on your neck!
