Every parent has experienced the stress of taking a baby to the beach or pool. You really do need the eight arms of an octopus in order to carry all the paraphernalia, in addition to safely carrying your baby.
A baby carrier is the obvious answer in this situation, but it needs to be taken off before entering the water, and then you have the problem of a slippery baby potentially slipping out of your arms, or needing to attend to an active toddler.
Enter the Frog Orange baby carrier. Not only is it a fully functional infant carrier which maintains that all-important M-position of baby's legs, it's also the perfect accessory for introducing water play to a new baby while keeping them close.
Frog Orange lays claim to being the very first structured baby carrier for water use, constructed from a choice of royal blue or orange neoprene (wetsuit material). You can face baby inwards or outwards and adjust the straps as necessary.
The Frog Orange carrier can be pre-ordered from December 30 for a mid-January delivery. It accommodates babies from 4kg up to 9kg and costs $139.
It's great for hands-free fun in the water but as always, take the utmost care with supervision.
