One of the most important and potentially overwhelming decisions facing a new parent is choosing the proper swimwear for their new baby. Infant swimsuits come in an almost infinite number of colors, styles, materials, designs, etc. So what factors should you consider when deciding on a baby bathing suit and ultimately what is the best swimsuit for a newborn?
Without a doubt, the single most important factor when choosing a baby swimsuit is sun protection. Infants have incredibly sensitive skin and pediatricians recommend babies not use sunscreen until they are six months old. Dermatologists know that UV exposure leads directly to skin cancer, and just a single sunburn as a baby, toddler, or child can lead to skin cancer later in life. Be sure to choose a swimsuit with UPF 50+ protection like SwimZip swimwear. Also, make sure to add a hat and sun robe to keep baby extra protected when at the pool or beach – times of intense UV sun exposure.
The second most important point when choosing an infant swimsuit is comfort. You want your baby to love the water, and if the swimsuit is difficult to put on or rubbing and chafing, your baby is going to be miserable. SwimZip swimwear has added a full zipper down the front of its rash guard swim shirt. The SwimZip signature zipper makes the swimsuit so easy to get on and off … babies and parents totally love it! SwimZip also has a flat seams to limit rubbing and chafing and silky soft material that infants just love wearing on their sensitive skin.
The third most important factor for baby swimwear is style – both the swimsuit cut and design. Going back to point one, babies need as much coverage from the sun as they can get. Be absolutely sure to get a swimsuit top that is a rashguard swimshirt – preferably longsleeved like SwimZip’s popular All Aboard baby girl swimsuit style or Hard Working Man baby boy swimsuit style.
After making sure to get a full coverage suit, next think about design. Your baby’s first trips to the beach and pool will be memories you keep for a lifetime. So many of our summer pictures are taken in swimsuits with the pool or beach in the background. Make sure your baby is looking her/his best for these unforgettable splashing memories. Celebrities like Jessica Alba and Tori Spelling choose SwimZip swimsuits for their unique, timeless designs.
Be sure to choose a swimsuit for your newborn (0-3 month, 3-6 month, 6-12 month, 1T etc.) that fits a swim diaper. So many bathing suits do not leave enough room in the bottoms to fit a diaper. SwimZip baby swimsuits are carefully designed to fit swim diapers. Also, some baby swimsuits offer a diaper built into the swimsuit, but think long and hard about whether you really want to be searching around for somewhere to dump that out at the beach or be cleaning out all the sticky mess in the pool sink… Been there and done that – lesson learned!
Finally, be mindful of the price of the swimsuit. Get something to cheap, and chances are you will be buying another one later that month. Also, cheap swimsuits are usually not chlorine resistant and have rougher material, tending to rub and chafe a baby, leading to rashes. Swimsuits priced between $25-$35 will usually have high quality materials and last the summer.
