When Miss M was a baby and we were living in Australia, I got her swimming lessons for Mr M’s Father’s Day present so he could take her. He had been keen to take her swimming for so long and the lessons were in a lovely outdoor pool near home – he was so excited!
They went every Sunday morning to an 8 week course in a small group of babies and toddlers and Miss M just loved it. She didn’t cry or complain once and we’re hoping she’ll be a natural water baby (bath time is sometimes a different story of course).
Since moving back to the UK we haven’t had too much chance to take her swimming again until recently and we were overjoyed when Konfidence sent us one of their genius Konfidence floatsuits to try out! This post contains affiliate links.
We picked the Hibiscus & Pink one (top middle) and it’s so cute. It’s made from soft Lycra and you can buy it in age 1-5 years. We got the age 2-3 one so it would last as long as possible.
The swimsuit has 8 removable floats around the middle – a bit like a rubber ring. You can choose to keep them all in or slowly remove them as they get more confident in the water.
We chose to leave all of the floats in as she’s still quite young and it also helped Mr M move her around on his own without having to worry about her bobbing under.
The suits also have 50+ UPF sun protection for when we finally get the chance to be back swimming outside – come on Summer!
Miss M had a brilliant time swimming, jumping in the pool and riding on Daddy’s back and looked cute as a button in her new swimmers – we love the suit!
As well as for your own little one, I think it would also make a brilliant gift for a birthday, Christmas or Easter coming up. I have birthdays on my mind as Miss M turns 2 this month :)
We’ll be swimming again next week and many times now we’ve discovered our local pool so I can imagine this floatsuit will get many outings. Miss M loves it – she won’t even let us put it in her swimming bag – she has to carry it and wave it around until she gets it on!
