#NBFluffNStuff Beachfront Baby LLC water wrap review and #GIVEAWAY {US/Canada}

Many of you know that I am a baby wearing mama! I LOVE wearing my babies! Mom's of more than one child can tell you how awesome it is to have your hands free to chase around an older sibling! When you are out and about it's awesome to have your hands free especially when you are faced with new surroundings. Being out and about with kids is definitely not boring. You've always got to be a step ahead in your thought and action in order to keep everyone safe... especially if you are a mama of two explorative little boys that will go... go... go!
Safety is always first and foremost on my mind when I'm out and about with my kids! Especially at the pool! Both my boys (ages 3 and 5) are water babies! They LOVE the water! They each wear a life jacket in the pool and will boldly go into the deep end unassisted and (if weren't for the rules set forth by the pool and the constant watch of the life guards) they would be trying to master the slide and diving board!
We've been to the pool several times this summer. The first time we went, baby girl was only 2 weeks old. I of course did not get in but my husband took the boys! I stayed pool-side with my girl and gently rocked her as I watched the rest of my family enjoy the water!
While I was at the pool I was thinking how awesome it would be to wear my baby in the pool! Then I found Beachfront Baby. Beachfront Baby was created by Diane Turner out of her need to have her hands free while in the pool with her older kids and yet still have her baby close! *kind of like the situation I'm in now* You can read more about how Beachfront Baby came to be HERE!
I contacted Beachfront Baby regarding this event and was sent my very own water wrap for review. I received a one size wrap in passion berry.
This is what I received:

 The fabric of the Beachfront Baby water wrap is made of 100% polyester jersey:
 Here is a close up of the mesh fabric:
Here is some more information on the water wrap (taken from Beachfront Baby's website):
"What is a Beachfront Baby Wrap Carrier? These sport & water wrap baby carriers are a must have for the summer! 100% polyester jersey lends breath-ability with just the right amount of stretch. The fabric feels like a lightweight, silky swimsuit which keeps it light in the water & dries very quickly. Wear baby in the shower, at the beach, at the water-park or in the pool. This especially comes in handy for keeping your hands free to play with or help older children in the water! Great for showering with a slippery baby! Can even be used as a sporty, everyday wrap! Available in 10 fun colors!"

I was really impressed with the ease of use of this wrap. It is available in 3 different sizes.
*One size wrap dimensions are 15 ft in length and 19-20 inches at the center. One size fits most.
*X-Long wrap dimensions are 18 ft in length and 19-20 inches at the center .This is the perfect size for parents over 5'10" & 200+lbs or those who wear an XL shirt.
*Petite wrap dimensions are 14 ft in length and 19-20 inches at the center. Fits adults approximately 5'3" & ~110lbs & under. Unlike other water baby carriers, there are no buckles, snaps or neoprene- just a long piece of comfortable cloth with tapered ends. The wrap conforms to the wearer’s shoulders and back for a comfortable fit that is fully customizable for babies & parents of all sizes. Wrapping is a process much like tying your shoes- it takes practice in the beginning, but soon becomes second nature. A photo instruction brochure with baby wearing safety info & tips is included with each wrap. A wrap-style carrier places baby in the optimal position- high on the wearer’s chest and close enough to kiss. This is extremely important in any water environment.

These wraps are designed for babies from 8-30 lbs. Since my little girl was just shy of 7 lbs I had to wait a bit before wearing her in this wrap. The correct way to wear your baby in the water is to use the 'heart to heart' hold!
As with the use of any baby carrier, it is important to make sure that you are able to bend down and kiss your baby while you are wearing him/her. It is also very important to ensure that his/her face (mouth and nose) is unobstructed to ensure they can breath easily. The heart to heart hold ensures both!
I think it's important to mention here that newborns have a hard time regulating their own body temperatures until they are older. That is one reason we decided to wait to introduce her to the swimming pool until she is older. BUT, having them close and pressed up to you in this water wrap does help regulate their body temperature as they are skin to skin with you and your body temp. is keeping them warm!
I love the fact that there is an image sewn directly onto the water wrap to ensure that you are wearing your baby correctly:
Here is a picture of the heart to heart hold:

Each time we went to the pool after I received my wrap, it was only about 70 degrees outside. The water temperature was even cooler. My husband was not comfortable my taking our little girl into the water (I think that was partially because she is still so small... a whopping 10.5 lbs at 4 months, and the fact that she's a fragile little GIRL)!!!
So I've used my wrap at home, around the house and in the shower:
** no that's not me**
But this is...............


My little girl LOVES this wrap! She does not fuss at all and 9 out of 10 times falls asleep while in the wrap! I love it too. No back pain, no aches! Very comfortable to wear!

I'm looking forward to taking my little girl into the pool very soon. We swim year-round so getting the chance to use this wrap in the pool will not be an issue. I also love that the jersey material is so lightweight that it dries super fast AND it is perfect for wearing your little one outdoors in the summer heat! It's breathable fabric that's awesome for hot summer days!
