    Default Swimming babies

    This is probably a dumb question, but I've booked my 6 month old to start swimming lessons in two weeks. I bought the huggies swimming nappies. Does he have to wear swimming trunks over those or can he just wear the nappy? I can't seem to find any swimming trunks in the shops

    You can do either. Some babies at our swimming lessons just wear the nappy and some wear bather bottoms over it. It's really up to you

    It will possibly depend on the swimming pool but he will definitely need a rashie or preferably an all in one so he won't get cold. You can also get some cute boardies as well.

    Try best and less in their clearance section, mine had a heap left or a second hand shop. Or maybe try an online shop as it should arrive it time if you have 2 weeks.

    Janey2012 - thanks! For some reason i thought it might be rude to show up in just a nappy

    CatesBean - thanks. I'll check out the best & less near me, i forgot all about them.

    We used one of those re-useable swim nappies from Kmart

    And nothing else.
