hello

i bought a normal swim suit for 12mo ds and then bought a neoprene swim suit on the internet which arrived yesterday. the neoprene one is a bit loose for ds, he's always been on the slim side so even though i measured him properly and so bought the right length, the width for want of a better word is a bit too big.

the normal swim suit is slightly smaller width wise so would be a bit of a snugger fit.

so my question is, do i use the neoprene one- even though as i understand it they need to be a snug fit to work? or do i use the normal one which will fit better but wont keep him as warm? or could i even use both??

bear in mind that i'm going to a school pool which will have adult pool temperatures.

i'm using a swim seat ring if that makes any difference.

please advise!!

The neoprene one is for keeping him warm. The normal ones mostly just keep the sun off while he is swimming in the water.

So I would go with the neoprene one.

remember you will need a swim nappy along with the swim suit
