Summer is almost here, and for many of us that means it will soon be time to take a break from work and enjoy some precious time with the family.
Whether you are planning a trip abroad to one of the Green List countries, staying in that country, or just spending a few afternoons at your local swimming pool, you need to make sure that the youngest your family members are ready to have a splash.
Babies and toddlers require a bit more care and attention when dressing them for the pool than older children (the more that changes). Look for swimsuits that offer UV protection – nothing will ruin a big day faster than a sunburned child.
Another note – small children cool in water much faster than adults, so make sure you have something cozy and wooly to bundle them up after splashing.
Here are 12 of the best baby and toddler swimwear available to buy now.
