The Best Floatation Swimsuits for Your Toddler
Specially designed floatation swimsuits not only protect your child around your swimming pool, they also help baby learn how to swim. Of course, it’s important to remember that these suits do not diminish the need for close adult supervision.
Here are some specific things to remember when purchasing and using this specially designed swimwear.
- Make sure the fit is snug so that the suit doesn’t fall down or off while swimming. Borrowing a toddler floatation swimsuit that is ill-fitting is a bad idea. Also, keep in mind that a snug fit around the legs also helps to prevent waterborne illnesses by decreasing the risk of your baby leaving little “gifts” in the water.
- The snug fit still needs to leave room for the swim diaper.
- NOTE: These suits DO NOT replace properly fitted personal flotation devices. And, again, close adult supervision is still needed while the child is wearing toddler floatation swimsuits.
- Many swim suits and swim shirts provide an extra layer of UV Ray protection, some with as much as SPF 50. But don’t forget to add generous amounts of sunscreen, wide-brimmed hats and sunglasses to baby’s swim ensemble.
- Early swimming lessons are a great idea. These suits help your child learn how to swim and the floatation blocks can be taken out as they gain ability and confidence.
These suits come in a large array of styles and colors for the difficult to please toddler: Cool surf wear for boys, frilly ruffled skirts for girls, etc. After all, getting your child to wear them is half the battle, isn’t it? They’ll love wearing them and you’ll be relieved that you are providing them with a little extra protection and giving them more confidence around water.
