Your Guide To Baby Swimwear


3-6 months

The difference in movement between the 0-3 month stage and this stage is very noticeable. The child learns to move his arms and legs, he begins to smile, laugh, wiggle, and giggle, and he learns to coordinate. Muscle tone is also much higher and can be felt when holding the belly in the pelvis. This extra movement helps extend time in the pool as he can now warm up by kicking, splashing, and exploring the water. 

At this age, it is still necessary to use the double layer system and swimsuit to maintain body temperature. 

6 to 12 months

We are concerned here with the period of 6 months since the needs of your child remain very similar during this period. At this stage, the child is much more active and more aware of his motor and coordination skills. So, the choice of swimwear depends on the length of swimming, movements, and water temperature.

Since specialized swimming classes take your child's needs into account, you may only need a double diaper system and a swimsuit or trunks. However, remember that public pools are not appropriately heated, and if you use them, you will probably still need a warm one piece swimsuit.

12-18 months

At this age, you will probably need to start thinking about swim aids. They may not be necessary for swimming lessons, but they are ideal for use in public pools, especially if you are supervising multiple children, or on vacation. Most people immediately think of wristbands, but in recent years swimsuits have evolved, and some items now incorporate buoyancy aids that make water safety much easier. 

5 Ways To Keep Your Baby Warm After Swim

Going swimming with your child is a very important activity. Not only does it provide him with a new activity that stimulates his mind and body, but it is also a great way to build a relationship with you, his parents. Swimming can be fun, interesting, happy, and relaxing, but we all know that can change quickly when you get out of the pool. Children are not able to regulate their body temperature like adults and cannot move enough to keep warm. That means they have to rely on you and your actions when the temperature around them suddenly changes. Here are five ways to keep your child warm after bath time.

A towel by the pool

This is a quick way to prevent significant heat loss. If you keep your child's towel at the edge of the pool, you can wrap it around him immediately so he doesn't cool down too quickly. It also calms him down because he can snuggle in and you can hold him to keep him warm. If you buy a hooded towel, it helps even more because most of the heat is lost through the head. Pull the hood up and you'll keep them even warmer.

Dry well

Once you're back in the locker room, take care of your baby first before you take care of yourself. Put a dry towel (if possible) on the changing table so it's not on a cold surface, or use a changing pad. Then dry them thoroughly, making sure to get under the arms, in the bumps, under the chin, and between the legs. If they are still wet when you put them on, they will feel the cold and be uncomfortable.


Layering is very effective at retaining heat and keeping the baby warm after bathing. Bring enough clothes to have a good selection and also in case something gets wet while you are in the changing room.


A little warm milk after a bath will instantly warm and soothe the baby. Swimming puts a strain on their little bodies, and when they get out of the pool, they need to be fed quickly. It's also ideal for babies who find the situation a little unsettling because the milk calms them down and they should start associating swimming and changing with a positive activity.
