Lil G started his swimming journey with Water Babies around the age of 5-months and as he was born premature we were advised to invest in the wet-suits supplied by Splash About. Keeping your baby warm in water is paramount to ensuring they enjoy their lessons. I have seen many a little one upset during their lessons only for the teacher to pop them into a suit and hey presto, no tears.
They are also the best way to keep them warm in cold water on holiday, at a water park or in a local swimming pool. Over the years I have found our public swimming pools much colder than the pools we have swam in with Water Babies. I wouldn’t entertain taking Lil G swimming without popping on a suit.
We have worked our way through the range of suits over the last 3-years and I can say with sincerity that we have never been disappointed. In both the suits and the service from Splash About. The team have always been so helpful and super fast delivery too!
From a baby wrap to a baby snug (my favourite) to a warm in one and more recently a UV Combi…
This particular suit can be found here – it is a UV Combi. Perfect for a sun holiday, a swimming lesson or even a fun swim at a Water Park. Of all the suits we have had this one is definitely indicative of his age. He no longer requires a thermal suit, just one which provides a bit of protection, perfect for what Lil G needs it for now. Many a time I have seen kids coming out of a pool shivering or off a water slide with burns on their arms, well not with one of these suits. All protected. Nice and warm. More fun for all involved.
All the suits are soft and easy to put on and for babies the baby snug is perfect as it was fleece lined, nylon so provided extra warmth which made a noticeable difference to how long Lil G could stay in the water. They wash well and certainly stand the test of time. As Lil G has grown slowly we have only needed 4 suits in 3-years so we really have had our wear out of each one.
As I mentioned the team are very helpful and always on hand to answer your queries on Twitter.
It goes without saying that I highly recommend the Baby & Kids Wet-suits from Splash About.
* Disclosure – we were gifted the UV Combi suit for the purpose of this review. All words are my own as is the very cute toddler, thank you Lil G for being a super model!
