Aloha! There are so many lovely things that swimming with your baby brings and leaky swim nappies is not one of them. Nobody likes a floater, so making sure you have the right swim nappies for those baby swim classes or that wonderful holiday you have booked is essential.
Swimming is one of the best activities you can do with your baby. It’s a great bonding exercise too, in our busy world where we all have a constant to-do list, taking the time to focus one to one is special. Plus it’s a great way to meet other mums.
Did you know that being in the water engages your baby’s body in a completely unique way? Bilateral cross-patterning movements that use both sides of the body to carry out an action, help your baby’s brain grow. Cross-patterning movements build neurons throughout the brain, but especially in the corpus callosum. This facilitates communication, feedback, and modulation from one side of the brain to another. Down the road, this may improve:
- reading skills
- language development
- academic learning
- spatial awareness
So, with each splash of water that hits you in the face they’re creating billions of new neurons, just remember that as your eyes start to sting!
So we know swimming is awesome but why chose reusable swim nappies?
When packing for holiday space is of a premium the last thing you want to do is have to allocate a spot in the case for a bulky pack of swim nappies. Instead of having to take a pack of 14 swim nappies, you just need a couple of reusables. To the infinity pool and beyond, yes just 2 nappies for your holiday will keep baby beach-ready with one for wearing and one for the wash. Wear, wash, and repeat it’s all pretty simple; you’re always ready for the next splash. Wash them at 40oc with non-bio powder, no fabric softener and they are ready to dive back in.
They work brilliantly too containing any poo safely inside the nappy so you can enjoy making memories and not enemies if the pool has to be shut down for cleaning. With a fleece liner, reusable swim nappies don’t absorb water so your little one is comfortable to splash freely without being weighed down and they are neoprene free, yeah buoy! They have a hook and loop (bit like Velcro) adjustable waistband and elasticated legs so will grow with baby, while ensuring anything that happens in the swim nappy, stays in the swim nappy.
