Have you hit the pool yet this summer? I have! It was made so much easier to take my toddler into the pool having a mesh water sling to help hold him. He is still a little unsure about the whole pool idea, so the water sling helps him be close to mama and still enjoy the cooling off of the pool.
What is great about a ring sling for the water is that it is adjustable. You just pick a size, preferably one that will give you a tail about hip length, so you don’t have a long wet tail winding around your legs or floating in the pool for rowdy kids to tug on. You use it the same as a regular ring sling. It’s so wonderful for support in the pool, and shower and for light hot weather wearing ( you may find you need to readjust a bit more than traditional slings due to the thin, slippery nature of the mesh).

As the weather warms up, you may be looking for a cooler babywearing option. The Baby K’Tan Breeze has the 2 loops of the traditional Baby K’Tan, but half of the loops are soft knit, while the other half are breezy mesh. This will help the air to flow through the carrier and between the wearer and the child being carried.
Any carrier is going to be hotter than not carrying your child, however, because you will have 2 bodies pressed together. But this is a good option if you have a newborn and are looking for an easy carrier option for the summer. [Read more...]
The Baby K'tan Breeze Baby Carrier is an innovative breathable mesh active carrier that is an ideal blend of a sling, wrap and carrier, providing the positions and benefits of all three. Lighter than any other carrier on the market, the Breeze carrier has the same great double loop design as the original Baby K'tan, but is made of 50% breathable mesh and 50% soft cotton. This mesh/cotton construction will reduce heat and moisture, making it more breathable and comfortable for baby and parent while retaining the same stability and ease of use as the original. There is no other carrier available like it (a ready to wear wrap.) that enables parents and caregivers to comfortably carry infants and toddlers (from birth to 3 years) in multiple positions. The K'tan carrier is ideal for premature babies and babies with special needs. It is lightweight and compact like a sling, yet goes over both shoulders to evenly distribute baby's weight like a structured carrier. The adjustable back support band offers the wearer extra back support and makes it easy to adjust baby or toddler's weight distribution on both shoulders. The exclusive design offers the wearer a 100% cotton carrier that is ready to wear, with NO buckles, snaps, rings or hardware. Extremely simple to use, the secret behind this parent invented, ready to wear baby carrier is its unique double loop design, which gives added security for carrying baby and privacy for mom while nursing. It is easy to put on and take off, and comes in a free carry bag. Baby K'tan, LLC uses all 100% natural cotton free of harmful chemicals, formaldehydes and azo dyes.
