       What type of swimwear should kids wear?

The best swimwear for kids depends on the age of your child. Babies from newborn to 18 months will need a swim nappy. As your little one grows, they’ll start to develop their own preferences when it comes to what they wear. Some may love to wear a two piece while others will prefer a full costume. The right swimwear can make all the difference when it comes to making sure your child is comfortable and protected while they splash around in the water. If you're buying online, be sure you know your child's exact measurements so that you don't end up with an ill-fitting suit. Too big and it could come off too easily, while too small could lead to chafing if it doesn't have enough room for growth spurts. To protect your child from getting sunburnt, besides looking for a good fit, look out for rashguards, which are also available in a range of fun and colourful designs. 

       How many swimsuits does a child need?

One pair should be enough for most children, however if you're unsure how many swimsuits your child needs, just ask yourself: How often do they swim? If they're in the water daily or weekly, then buy more than you think you need. For instance, if you're going on vacation and want them to swim every day for two weeks straight, buy a couple of extra suits so they always have dry swimwear to change into. 

       What should kids wear when swimming?

There are many different types of swimwear available for children, including board shorts, rash guards, and swimsuits. The first thing to remember is that kids should be wearing swimwear that fits properly. It should fit well around the neck, shoulders, and waist so that it doesn't get caught or snagged while they're swimming. If your child's swimsuit doesn't fit properly, they may not be able to swim as well as they should be able to.

The next thing to consider is how much sun protection your child will need. A quality rashguard will protect against harmful UV rays in combination with ample sunscreen. A rash guard will also help to protect them from the chemicals in chlorinated water. You’ll find plenty of choice in our kids swimwear collections available online at Splish Splash Australia.

       How do I keep my child warm in the pool?

If you have a small child and are thinking of taking them swimming, you might be wondering how to keep them warm in the pool. Here are some tips for keeping your child warm in the water:

Make sure your child wears a swimsuit that fits properly (tight enough so it doesn't slip off but not too tight that it restricts movement).

Consider using a rash guard when your child is playing outside. This will help protect their skin from the sun's harmful rays. 

If possible, bring along a towel or blanket to place over your child after they get out of the water. This will help them dry off quickly.

       Is it necessary for kids to wear a swimsuit?

There are several reasons why kids should wear swimsuits while swimming:

Swimsuits help keep the kids safe. They are designed in such a way that protects the body from the sun’s UV rays and reduces the risk of scratches and scrapes. They come with armholes, leg holes and sometimes a zipper in the front so they can be easily removed without any hassle. A swimsuit can also help you to easily locate your little one at a busy beach or pool. They’re available in a range of bold, bright colours and designs so your child can choose their favourite.
