Baby Essentials for Swimming

Baby Essentials for Swimming

One of the concerns for parents, when it comes to swim lessons with their infant, is what do they bring? What are the essentials for a swim class? British Swim School will help guide you with the list of necessities!

Babies underwater with parents

    1. Swimsuits!Definitely a Mr. Obvious choice. But, we recommend that you wear your swimsuit underneath your clothing before class so you’re prepared! Baby should also wear swimsuit underneath clothing with diapers.
    2. TowelsTwo towels are recommended just because getting out of the pool is quite chilly for your baby and you’ll need one for yourself.
    3. Swim Diapers!That’s right parents, there are reusable swim diapers your bundle of joy can utilize during lessons! We definitely recommend that you use two at once to prevent any accidents!
    4. Snacks!Now there are usually no eating policies at pools. However, it’s important to emphasize good healthy habits for your child. Have a baby bottle ready in case baby feels hangry before lessons. Try to limit intake right before class though because there are oopsie vomit incidents! If your child is starting to eat some solids, pack some bananas in a Ziploc bag! Try to snack right after class parents!
    5. Hypoallergenic LotionIt’s important to remember that pools are chlorinated, so you and your baby should apply lotion after class. But why do we recommend hypoallergenic lotion? Allergies are prevalent among children and often times parents find out about allergies when their child reacts to a substance. Hypoallergenic lotion helps soothe any skin irritation, in case of any allergies to chlorine from either parent or child.
