Best Swimwear For Toddlers

Friday, 17 Dec 2010 05:00 PM

Swimming has become a past-time that's enjoyed year round in many parts of the country. When dressing toddlers for the beach or swimming pool, there are several things to keep in mind before you get outside with your young one.
COMFORT is key to children's clothing. For a boy's bathing suit, it should be cut roomy enough for comfort but snug enough to keep the swim diapers in place. Never allow your child to swim without the swimmers under the swimwear to prevent accidents. Additionally, girl's suits should have adjustable straps so that she's not constantly tugging or pulling up straps, detracting from her fun.
SUN BLOCK PROTECTION SUITS are the latest and greatest addition to the swimwear wardrobe of toddlers. While it doesn't keep you from having to apply sunscreen, it helps prevent the sun from penetrating through the fabric. These suits are more durable than the regular swimsuit and thus, cost more. However, the 50 SPF that they offer in protection is worth the cost.
TWO PIECE girl's swimsuits are the best styles to help with diaper changing. While the one-piece look is simply adorable, it's not very practical. It makes changing diapers difficult and complete removal necessary. Instead, buy a tankini look for more sun coverage and make sure your child has plenty of sunscreen to protect their young skin.
MULTIPLE SWIMSUITS are the key to a happy, fun summer with your child. Buy a minimum of five suits each year to keep frustration to a minimum, especially if you're a daily swimmer. Take an extra suit with you to the pool when you go as you will want to be prepared if there's an accident or leakage.
BUY A HAT even if your child is forever taking it off. Get one that ties under the chin to encourage it to stay on, but remember to put sunscreen on the face of the child in addition to the hat. Most hats are a part of the swimwear and come with the suits or can be purchased in the same department. They're not just for looks as they provide much needed protection from the sun and are durable enough to get wet while swimming.
