What they say: "Splash About's UV All-in-One is specifically designed to protect delicate baby and toddler skin against the sun. Made from Nylon Lycra it's ultra soft for all-day-wear and the fabric composition keeps little bodies cool while providing UPF50+ sun protection, and wind/sand protection on the beach.

"This playsuit has a high neck, long sleeves and legs to protect vulnerable areas with under-leg poppers on baby sizes for easy nappy changing. For wriggling toddlers eager to play, it's a bonus that suncream is only needed on exposed skin!

"Lightweight, quick drying and space-saving in a suitcase/changing bag, it's perfect for baby travel!"

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I would definitely recommend the Splash About UV All-In-One. The suit is really easy to get on, even when your 6 month old is wriggling around like a maniac. The material is lovely and soft and moves really well. The patterns available are fantastic and I think there is something suitable for everyone's tastes.

How did this product make your life easier?     

When I try to get my daughter ready for swimming, she's normally a nightmare. Swimming nappies are quite tight and hard to get on her and she gets very distressed. This suit was so easy to get on her and I couldn't believe it. She didn't cry or get annoyed once and it took a very small amount of time to get on her and done up.

The Splash About UV All-In-One is perfect for us. My daughter was premature and feels the cold in a pool easily. This suit covers her up enough to keep her warm and also protects her well from UV rays. The patterns are fantastic and there is a lot of choice. The suit fits really well and it's great value for money.

What changes would you make to this product?

This suit could be a little difficult to get on babies who cannot sit up on their own or who are not comfortable on their stomachs yet. The back velcro fastening could be really tricky and difficult for some people with their babies. A side or front fastening some how would be an option to think about.

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I would recommend this product to other mothers because the splash about all in one suit is easy to put on and take off, making changing baby after a swim convenient and also if you need to make any changes between swim (nappy changes!) it is quick and easy. This makes the suit more comfortable for the baby to be in. I also like that the all in one suit has UV protection, this makes the product highly recommendable to me- safety in the sun is extremely important to me so this aspect is a big highlight.

How did this product make your life easier?     

Being able to change my baby easily in and out of the splash about suit, my son is comfortable in it and it is in no way obstructive, making swimming a real pleasure for him. He's warm, protected from the sun and comfortable. The suit is a complete winner for us. Myself and my husband really like the design and think that this brand has achieved a baby (and parent!) friendly product that meets all the criteria needed to make it successful. I think it's great value for money and would definitely purchase another one.

What changes would you make to this product?

If I could change one thing it would be the option to have a built in nappy with it, I'm not sure how that would effect it's effortlessness in getting it on and off the child but the option would be nice- when we go to a swimming pool and have to put a disposable swimming nappy underneath I feel it can become a little more restrictive for my baby but when we are on the beach I haven't needed to use one. If the brand could add one without altering the comfort for the child that would be a bonus!
