Water Wrap Baby Carrier Review

by Mama Chocolate on July 29, 2012

* review by Katelyn F.

Yesterday was our first excursion to the pool this summer! It was wonderful to get out of the heat and even more fun to take my baby with me!

My normal wrap would get much too stretchy in the water, but the Water Wrap Carrier one has a two-way stretch instead of a four-way stretch, so it won’t get too loose when wet.

It was great to have both hands free in the pool, not to mention my arms didn’t get tired. Of course I couldn’t dive or swim around with a baby attached, but I can’t usually anyway when looking after my other children.

It’s made out of mesh polyester jersey for air flow. I put it on the same way as my other wrap, and it is just as comfortable… maybe even more so in the heat! It was perfect for the water, but it’s also nice for if you need to wear your baby on a hot summer day. The mesh is so breathable it makes it quite comfortable.

Calvin (5 months) was unfazed by his first pool experience, and contentedly sat there and sucked on it. I guess that’s his mark of approval.

Info from WaterWrapCarriers.com:

These sport & water wrap baby carriers are a must have for the summer! 100% polyester jersey lends breath-ability with just the right amount of stretch. The fabric feels like a lightweight, silky swimsuit which keeps it light in the water & dries very quickly. Wear baby in the shower, at the beach, at the water-park or in the pool. This especially comes in handy for keeping your hands free to play with or help older children in the water! Great for showering with a slippery baby! Can even be used as a sporty, everyday wrap!

Water Wrap Carriers are available in several beautiful colors and besides the basic, average, one-size wrap, ($35) there are also petite and extra large versions.

You can also purchase a mesh carry bag for an extra $6, if you’d like a convenient way to tote around your wrap. These mesh carry bags are multi-purpose and have all kinds of potential uses!

Diane from Water Wrap Carriers is generously giving away one of these beautiful wraps to one lucky Mama Chocolate reader during the Wish You Were Here giveaway hop, going on now!

Hurry, the giveaway ends August 6th, Monday, at 11:59 pm EST.

Having taken all four of our kids to the pool (just me and my husband) I can tell you, this would have been handy. We all made it out alive, but this could have saved some gray hairs, I’m sure!

What an ingenious idea! I wish I would’ve known about this when my kids were “wrap aged”.
