Baby swim

Just started baby swim classes with DD, 7 months, and it takes me ages to get her dried & dressed afterwards, then myself too of course. I was 2nd out of the pool and almost last to leave the changing room. All the others managed so quickly. Any tips on how to make it easier and quicker? THanks.

I used to take a toweling dressing gown for mine and wrap them in that when I was getting dried. It meant that I was not dripping over them when trying to dry them and that they were nearly dry when I did change them.

One of those fleecy sleepsuits that you can get - put nappy on, then fleecy suit - done. No tights/outfits anything really.

Easiest clothes possible for you too.

Yep, definitely go for a babygro or sleepsuit. Much easier. Also, talc is useful as I never seem to be able to get my dd properly dry after swimming. Trust me, its much easier at that stage than once they start walking. I had to run after my dd with one leg in my jeans, one out and no bra on the other day and she'd practically got to pool-side!
