Slippery When Wet in Antibes, France

Who:

I am a mother of 3. I am wearing my third child here when she’s around 18 months old. With my other children not allowed to come to baby swimming, I had to go it alone while hubby kept the big ones at home.
Where:

We go to baby swimming every week in the municipal pool in Antibes (France) where the Olympic hopefuls train and there is a view of the Mediterranean Sea. We’re in the pool shower after one of the sessions.
What:

I’m wearing a Babyette water sling. This has been a fantastic purchase for summers at the pool and the sea, and especially for the pool shower.
When:

This was in October 2011, when my baby was 18 months old. But we used the water sling from the time we started baby swimming with her (she was 5 months old).

Why:
I’ve taken all 3 of my children to baby swimming for the first 4 years of their lives and they loved it. But I learned with my first 2 that holding a slippery,wet baby and trying to wash her under the shower is dangerous and stressful. Even when my 2nd child could walk, she would often fall on the slippery floor if I set her down. So when I was pregnant with my 3rd, I bought this water sling for this purpose and I was very happy with it.
