Just got this yesterday so very excited to try it out today with my 8kg son. It is super light, thin and soft. Surprisingly it supported my boy very well. Once tightened it doesn't really budge at all. It is also quite comfortable being airy and nice on the shoulders. My boy was quite a leg straightener today so he did manage to pop the seat a few times. I'm not sure whether the material being quite glidy has anything to do with it or he was just extra jerky today. Another thing I noticed was because the material is so light and glides so well, when I have the sling around me without baby in it (like getting in and out of the car), the rings always slides right down towards the floor so the tails tend to drag around. Most rs, the rings will stay on my shoulders but this one the rings are too heavy comparatively so the whole sling rotates. Not a huge issue unless you often keep the sling on you when baby gets out for a short while. For 'land' use I don't think this will replace normal woven kind of ring sling. I will have to try a wrap nap with it though. Very curious to see whether this will make a difference as my boy sweat buckets (even in aircon)! Part two water review coming up once I try this in the shower and pool!
Part 2: Shower review!
I was hoping to try this out in the pool also but our health and weather didn't quite permit... But... we did try it in the shower twice! It was really quite lovely to use wet. Equally supportive and comfortable. Doesn't budge at all so baby is very secure in there (even with no clothes on!). The tail can get a bit in the way and splashes around but wrapping it around the ring solves that problem. It was really quite fun as I was showering all three kids at the same time (super useful otherwise it would be one screaming baby strapped in the bouncer while watching the rest of us in the shower). The bigger ones loved it. Think lo was just amused being in the shower for the first time. The actual bathing the baby part requires a bit of skill and practice but the second time round definitely felt easier. Only real problem I faced was lo kept wanting to latch when there were bubbles everywhere! Drying was easy and fast too. I just hung on the shower door and nice and dry in the morning (it probably dried much earlier)!
I would imagine using this is a pool or water playground would be fantastic. Definitely recommend for all who often frequent the beach, pool, or water play! And for those who need to bring little ones into the shower!"
