One of the most exciting parts of buying newborn clothing is preparing for that first trip to the pool, whether it’s a paddling pool as summer draws nearer, the local leisure centre, or even a holiday abroad. Choose from our selection of adorable baby swimming costumes in a variety of colours and patterns. Alternatively, opt for simpler baby swimwear options like shorts or nappy covers.
It can be daunting being able to float in water, so give them a helping hand. For newer arrivals, swim seats will help them to enjoy bobbing around on the surface, while remaining supported. As they mature into toddlers and a few years old, goggles and armbands will give them the freedom but protection required to enjoy pool time under their own steam.
Get them quickly dried off with baby towels. It’s good to have a few handy - some for chlorine or saltwater, and others for bath time. Baby joggers, cardigans and baby t shirts are easy options to pop on and stay warm after splashing around.
Whether it’s a trip to the pool or lunch out, you’ll need a baby changing bag to keep all the essentials in. Different pockets keep the reusable nappies separate from the wet wipes, and mean your keys don’t get lost right at the bottom!
