  • 2018 Shortlisted Best Swimming Product
Mother & Baby 2018 Shortlist

At a glance:

This cute cosy suit is easy to get on and will keep your baby warm in the water all year round. Our panel of mum testers found this suit helped their baby enjoy swimming more, but wished they were able to change the nappy without taking the whole suit off.

What they say:

“All year round cosy suit to keep baby warm in & out of the water with integrated swim nappy.”

Tested by mum Kayleigh Mancini for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this product to fellow mums because it keeps baby warm, is easy to do up, and is also a lot easier than putting a tight-fit swimsuit on. On previous swimming occasions my baby hasn't been so happy, but in this suit she feels much more secure and warmer, enabling her to relax more in the pool and enjoy her swimming time.

How did the product make your life easier?

This product makes my life easier by keeping my baby warm whilst we swim, as most swimming pools are very cool nowadays, and it makes me confident to know that she is keeping warm. This allowed us to stay in the pool for a lot longer than usual.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would. This product comes above any of the others because of the fleecing inside, which keeps baby warm. The nappy liner and the bottoms to the suit fit snuggly around baby, and I also feel it is more comfortable for my baby compared to other swimsuits and swim warmers we have used in the past.

What changes would you make to the product?

I would change the bottoms to the suit so that they are joined to the whole suit, as it can sometimes be hard to get baby in and keep the nappy liner in the correct place. I have also looked online to buy another and can't find any size bigger than 6-12 months, which is a shame given the 6-12 months size hasn't lasted long.

Tested by dad Michael Mahoney for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this product for two reasons: firstly because of the high quality material, and secondly because of the price. It is made of a very nice material for a baby’s skin, and doesn’t cause irritation. My baby has very sensitive skin, yet this didn’t cause any problems at all. It is easy to clean, washes well, and has a lovely design that is comfortable for baby.

How did this product make your life easier?

This product makes my life easier because it holds in my baby’s nappy, protects it whilst in the pool, and prevents it from leaking. This product is of a very high quality for the price paid and keeps baby warm up top, whilst the bottom half of their body is in the water. Unfortunately, it doesn’t help me to do anything else especially better or faster.

Would you choose this product to win?

I don’t think I would choose this product above all others on the market, due to having to take the whole thing off to change baby’s nappy. After doing so, it isn’t easy to then put back on a wriggling baby once their skin is wet. It isn’t a stretchy material, and baby’s arms don’t bend like an adult’s, meaning it is difficult to put it on.

What changes would you make to this product?

To make this product better I would change it so that you can change the nappy whilst the baby has the rest of the costume on. I would also make the material stretchier, so that it moves with baby’s movements, and doesn’t keep them as stiff like a board. I would also probably add some legs onto it, as babies can get cold very quickly.

Tested my mum Lucie Maddox for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I already have – I feel the costume keeps my baby warmer than previous, similar options, and think the design is cute with really good sizing. The design is great and we love how small it folds up! It also dries well after a swimming session, making this a perfect aid.

How did this product make your life easier?

This swimming costume makes swimming an enjoyable experience for my baby and I. The costume keeps him warm whilst swimming and enables us to spend a lot more time in our local pool. It’s easy to put on and remove after a swimming session, and folds up small for transporting to and from the pool.

Would you choose this product to win?

Yes, we would definitely choose this swimming costume. The price is good value compared to similar brands, and we do feel this is the best on the market. Sizing is good and should fit my little boy for a few more months. We are going on holiday soon and will be taking this item with us.

What changes would you make to this product?

I wouldn't change one thing about this product as it works perfectly. We've used it weekly since receiving it and will continue to do so long into the future. We were very impressed with the cost of this item.

Tested by mum Lucy Macleay for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would love to recommend this lovely product to a friend or fellow mum, mainly because of the cute design and ease of use. Every mum will love seeing her darling baby looking absolutely fabulous in this cute swimsuit. And because you never know when an accident is coming, having a swimsuit that can keep everything contained is essential!

How did this product make your life easier?

Seeing as going to the swimming pool is not an everyday occurrence, we used this swimsuit in the bath. We found the seams around the legs helped contain messy accidents very well, and with the ease of use, cleaning up was a hassle free experience. The pattern on the swimsuit is very cute, and we will definitely wear this out to the pool as and when we get the chance.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would absolutely choose this product to win. With the cute design she looks absolutely fantastic, and the ease of use made getting her in and out of the swimsuit a breeze! The best part is the seam, which keep everything contained, and means we don't have any embarrassing leaks.

What changes would you make to this product?

As much as we love this super cute swimsuit, we did find one small issue. This issue wasn’t down to the product itself, but our daughter has very sensitive skin and she found the material on the inside quite irritating when wet. Another child might not have this problem, and other than this issue we loved this swimsuit.

Tested by mum Louise Malyon for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Easy to use, this swimsuit gives mums peace of mind that baby is warm and protected from the sun whilst enjoying the water. The product works well, with the liner nappy providing a firm seal, and it can also be used with a swimming nappy, with both ensuring accidents are kept inside. It has a funky pattern that baby enjoys looking at, which also makes baby look cute.

How did this product make your life easier?

This item is fabulous for ensuring that baby is kept warm whilst swimming or paddling in the pool. We have used the product in the paddling pool and had a long play compared to when my baby had just a swimsuit on. The UV protection is a godsend, and gives peace of mind knowing that baby is protected from the sun.

Would you choose this product to win?

Yes, mainly due to the fleecy liners ensuring that baby's kept warm. The age range is six months, not three, meaning the swimsuit lasts longer and is better value for money. The designs are funky, however, there is only one boy and one girls design offered at the moment. It is fully sealed around baby's body when worn, and is easy to get baby in and out of, especially when wet.

What changes would you make to this product?

More designs available to purchase would be nice, and at present, the largest is 6-12 months. I would like to see bigger sizes available in the future, though I wouldn’t change anything about the style of the current product. It is very useful and very practical. There maybe more interest if it was slightly cheaper to purchase.
