i used the mothercare swimnappy which was great .... (greenbaby do one as well but i think they are quite big) look on ebay you will pick up one really cheaply as they are hardly used before they move up another size! I used to put my swimming costume on before we went under my clothes, so i just had dd to change and made this quicker. TAke two towels so you can wrap up your ds and have one for youself (unless you are like me and take one tell, and then stand dripping!) EAsy clothes to get on and off ds make your life easier! Its such good fun swimming at this age, i loved it, also dd slept so well after swimming, and extra bonus! My friend used to take some nice cream/massage oil and rub her little dd afterwards, i always forgot but its a great way to protect their skin as the water can dry it a little enjoy
I'd go with GunpowderTreasonAndLemon's suggestion. I did the same and was glad as some babies react differently to the water temp. Some in our class had a blue tinge when they came out when not wearing a wrap. DD was always toasty when we'd finished. Got mine from here www.swimbabes.co.uk
hi there - I wouldn't worry too much about the sizing on the huggies nappy. If you put a happy nappy (which some of the above posters have recommended) on top it should stop any leaks.
If you get the correct size of happy nappy - I think they start from extra small - it should fit quite snuggly. I've had both my DDs in a double layer - disposables and happy nappys - since we started swimming. Works well I've never had an ahem accident......
Enjoy the swimming - both my DDs have gone swimming from about 3 months and loved it!!
