I love babywearing–and so do Steve and Ryan. I think I have nearly every type of carrier possible! But with summer quickly approaching, I was worried about getting hot and overheating Ryan. Then I discovered slings exist that you could wear in the water! AND they offer protection against 97% of UV rays! I’m that paranoid mama trying to block every bit of sun from Ryan because baby skin is just so sensitive! So what is this awesome fabric? It’s called Solarweave. And I found one at Wallababy.

Solarweave fabrics are UVBLOCK Certified, meaning they’re tested and rated according to US standards (the world’s most rigid), which includes 40 washings, 100 hours of continuous UV exposure and testing throughout UV-B and UV-A range using precision electronic equipment.

Why I love it: it’s lightweight and cooler for the summer months. You can wear it in the water, which I am super excited about. Steve’s parents own a lakehouse and we spend many weekends there in the summer… Ryan is going to have so much fun! And I’ll feel safer I think wearing him rather than holding him or putting him in a raft. It’s also really comfortable and spreads easily over my shoulder and across my back.

Wallababy has been making quality baby carriers since 2002. Their site offers great safety information, ways to carry, and a photo gallery. They not only carry these Solarweave sun-safe slings, but also fleece and regular pouches, kid and baby slings, and… custom slings!! How cool is that?! You ship your favorite fabric to them and they make the sling for you (and throw in a FREE kid sling)! I love it. Wallababy is very customer-service-friendly! 🙂
