Back in March, Baby was chosen to be Konfidence Swimologist and we were sent lots of lovely swimming goodies to test out during Baby’s lessons. She has now been swimming for 7 weeks, so I thought it was time to share our thoughts on these products.
Baby Warma – These are soft neoprene wetsuits. Most baby swimming classes will recommend that your baby (if aged 0-2 years) should wear a Baby Warma/Wetsuit, as Babies can get cold very quickly in the water. This looks great (I love the polka dots!) and it keeps Baby snuggly and warm thoughout her lessons. It also gives me piece of mind and we can concentrate on having fun! The neoprene provides a non slip surface, which is useful for keeping a good grip on them… Baby Warma’s also offer full UV protection from the sun, so are ideal to use on the beach or even in the paddling pool at home. (Priced currently at £16.99, usually £18.99)
Aqua Nappy – A hygienic, all in one nappy, which will ensure no little accidents escape. They comprise of three layers, an inner mesh layer, a PVC barrier and a soft polyester outer layer. One size fits 0-30 months and they cost £9.99. They are a lovely design and ours matches the navy and white polka dot pattern of her Baby Warma.
Neo Nappy – This neoprene nappy cover has a soft neoprene shell, with nylon waist and leg openings. The Neo Nappy provides the double layer system demanded by some baby swim schools. They are currently £7.99 (usually £9.99), great value. They are a great snug fit, so although we didn’t have any accidents I can’t see them escaping if we did!
Roll & Go Baby Changer – This fabulous award winning neoprene changing mat is a must have for our swimming trips. Made from soft cushioned neoprene, it features a non slip back and has a warm top cover. It is also chlorine resistant. As the name suggests it rolls up into a small tube, so is really easy to add to the swimming bag without taking up too much room. It costs £9.99.
Flashing Floating Blinkies – We received a set of 3 blinkies; a duck, fish and dolphin. They are fabulous, flashing when they get wet. Ours has got the nickname of Disco Duck at our swimming group. They encourage splashing in bath at home and then can be taken swimming, so your baby through association will be more relaxed. Although that wouldn’t work for us a Baby still hates the bath! They can also be used to encourage babies to move forward in the pool. Baby loves her duck and always holds it when she goes for her lessons. They are £1.99 each or £5.99 for the set of three.
Quikfinz Dolphin Float – These can be used to encourage children to swim towards or to push along (£2.99).
We are also sent an amazing swim bag. It is a great size, so lots of room for all our Konfidence goodies. Thank you Konfidence for the opportunity to be Swimologists and for these wonderful products, which we can’t recommend highly enough.
Coming soon – We put the Konfidence sun suit through its paces.
