Please help me I'm so confused! We are off on an all inclusive beach holiday with an 8 month old next month and I'm not sure what swimwear to get for her. She had a happy nappy swimsuit but has just grown out of it and I don't think it's going to be good for her anyway as it's tricky to get on and off. We are likely to be spending a good few hours at a time on the beach and will likely be in and out of the sea so I don't want to keep changing her all the time. I was thinking of getting a popper bottom swimsuit of some kind then putting either a happy nappy or disposable nappy underneath which I can then change to a normal nappy when we are just playing on the beach so she doesn't wee everywhere, does that sound practical? I was going to get a poncho style or hooded towel to wrap her in after swimming so that she can dry but don't want to have to keep changing her swimsuit.
Obviously I'm only talking a few hours at a time not a whole day I will get her changed into clothes to go and get lunch and have a nap etc just thinking about the time on the beach (or at the side of the pool for that matter!
I have ds's, but have always used the all in one suits. Either from next, boden or john Lewis. I have two or three with us at any time. And yes to the poncho, but make sure it's a towelling one, ours are from john Lewis, as some are a kind of fleece fabric which doesn't do the job at all!
We are going in May to an AI beach holiday, our wee one is 21 months. I have a couple of the UV 2 piece swimwear sets, they are wee shorts and a top, ideal as keeps her covered! We use little swimmers nappies for swimming lessons so will take them with us! We got a couple of poncho beach towels from matalan and saonsburys for her! We have a uv sun cover for buggy also! Enjoy
