Water slings? *update*

We are getting ready to go on vacation. We will be going to the beach and going to a pool/ water park. I was wondering if anyone has experience using a water mesh ring sling? Is it worth it? Any other cheaper suggestions?

*Update*

For those of you who were interested I found a mesh ring sling on eBay for only $25 + $4-5 shipping. I got it really quickly and it's really nice. It has the same type of rings the Maya has. Her username on ebay is mommaofmaddie but if you search water ring sling it comes up as a Buy It Now for $25 & you can pick your color. I hope it works good with Gracie. She's a Boba baby lol.

I LOVE mine! In the summer I actually use it more than my regular carrier since it is so light and it's so hot. I have a solarveil ring sling and a solar weave mei tai, I love them so so sos much, I couldn't imagine summer without them now.

i prefer the pouch to the sling or wrap, personally, wrap is awesome for a baby under 5 months though :)

Thanks! You always have great babywearing info of course lol. Where did you get the pouch? I will go ahead and buy one since I'll use it all summer I'm sure. I have an almost 18 lb 8 month old to wear in the water! She's heavy. Too bad Boba doesn't make a mesh carrier LOL.
