School will be out for summer in just a few weeks, unbelievable how quickly this school year has gone by! Soon enough we will be able to sit back, relax and enjoy the summer weather. Not only will school be out but our local community pool will be cleaned and set up for another summer of swimming fun! 

With that said, I find myself thinking of all the things the kids need this summer like some new outfits, hats, sunglasses, sunscreen and of course bathing suits to go swimming in. 

I find when buying bathing suits for kids, especially girls under the age of three its hard to find a bathing suit that doesn't replica a mini version of a bikini or tankini. As cute as those bathing suits are, protection from the sun comes with using the right sunscreen covering up, cover-ups and t-shirts are often worn over swimsuits. 

Baby M will be well protected this year thanks to SwimZip, UV protectant swimwear for the family! Unlike other bathing suits, SwimZip suits offer 98% UVA and UVB ray protection from the hot summer sun on little ones skin.



SwimZip swimwear was founded by Betsy Johnson after she was diagnosed a few years ago with skin cancer. She went on a mission to create swimwear that is comfortable and affordable while giving parents peace of mind that their little ones (and themselves) are protected from harmful UV rays while out having summer fun. 

SwimZip offers many different designs and styles to choose from for little boys and girls from baby up to tween sizes! They even have hats to top off the summer look. I took a look at different designs; Long sleeve, short sleeve and more. I decided to go with "Watermelon" for my little watermelon, 18-24 months size.

What I like about these bathing suits is that they are easy to put on, this is great for moms like me who have a wriggling toddler! The top zips up the front and the bottoms slide on like any other bottoms over a swim-diaper or without. 



I really like Baby M's new watermelon SwimZip bathing suit! Lightweight material means no soggy bums when shes swimming in the toddler pool and the bright colours look absolutely adorable on her! I can see many a happy summer day out in the sun for this little one! Now all we need is a new matching hat and baby sandals! :)

  15. I love the Watermelon Crawl - bright and sassy and cute - that would be my choice for my best friend's baby girl. Only thing is - my BFF loves to dress her baby girl in pink & purples... so I know she'd prefer the Sassy Surfer, or Ruffle Me Pretty.
