My baby is about to turn 6 months old and would love to enrol her in baby swim awareness classes. I was hoping to get some feedback from mums and also if they know where is a good place to get swimsuits. I have been looking through various sites and all they have are size 0. My baby will need something smaller. Also, will a swim nappy be worn under their swimsuits? Thanks.

  • Definitely will need to wear a swim nappy so you might need to buy a size larger

  • I remember I bought a beautiful, non frilly swimsuit for my 5 month old from Pumpkin Patch. At my local pool, swim nappies are required for all under 3 years of age. The swimsuits are designed to accommodate swim nappies. Alternatively, just use a disposable or reusable swim nappy alone.

  • A baby swimmer nappy and little swimming tee would be fine.

  • yes, you will have to get the swimming nappies. Big W usually have small sizes in swimmers.

  • Yes you will need a swim nappy, I then just bought a little swim shirt as that is easiest for you.

  • You’d definitely need a swim nappy! Places like pumpkin patch sell swim suits in as little as 000 sizes. Rebel may have some small ones too.

  • there are some good comments here

  • yeah prob need a swim nappy on

  • Some excellent suggestions, definitely a waterproof nappy. There are lovely sun-proof swimsuits for little ones.

  • I have seen swim suits as small as 0000 in best and less. And I know big w and target both have at least 00

  • My local chemist has a beautiful range ffrom new born, have a look around

  • Rashoodz are great have smaller ones and great design.
    I bought mine at the pregnancy and babies expo but you can buy online or I’ve seen them at our local chemist
    My son was in the pool from 8 weeks

  • Pumpkin Patch online have some on sale in sizes 3-6 months and 6-12 months. I would use a swim anppy underneath – I think most pools require that .

  • Myers, David Jones and Target used to have baby swimwear, if not Google what you need, definately a nappy on you don’t want to clear the pool with an accident, the earlier you start them swimming or at least getting used to the water the better.

  • i bought a set call babymari. They are made of cotton and gentle on baby skin.
