We are big swimmers in our house. Both of my kids have been swimming in organised lessons since they were babies and we go to the swimming baths on the weekends regularly. In the summertime getting out of the pool to get dried off and make the journey home is fine but in the winter it’s so cold. The thought of getting out of the pool, getting changed then going out in the cold to go home can put us off going. I have seen other people dressing their kids in onesies and thought it was a great post swimming solution so when given the chance to review the Water Babies Onesie Bubba I was very excited. I knew it would be great for keeping the kids cosy after swimming.
These snuggly onesies come in either pink or blue and sizes small (6-12 months) up to XXL (4-5 years). My youngest is two and a half so we went for size large (2-3 years) and it fits great. The arms and legs are a little long but very easily rolled due to the ribbed cuffs at the wrists and ankles. I like that it is oversized because it will last for a while and we will get a lot of wear out of it. It has a large hood which is also great for staying snuggly warm when going out in the cold.
This onesie would make a great Christmas gift for the little fish in your life but is also a great all-round gift. My little boy loved wearing it and it definitely kept him snug and warm on the way home from the swimming baths. It is made from 100% polyester fleece which made it dry super-fast and it is so soft – he didn’t want to take it off when we got home. I get my little boy changed into his swim trunks at home with the onesie on top, after swimming he just wears a nappy with the onesie overtop and he’s good to go. There is less to bring with us and it definitely cuts down on time in the changing rooms both before and after swimming. It makes getting changed at the swimming baths faster and easier.
The onesie can also be worn away from the swimming baths. Now that the weather is changing, I can see him wearing it on pj days around the house too. It would be perfect over pjs on late night journeys home, then as soon as you get home transfer the kids into bed and take the onesie off. I love anything that is going to make my life as a parent easier and this onesie will definitely do that.
I give the Water Babies Onesie Bubba 5/5 stars because it is so soft and generously sized. I love how easy it makes getting my little boy changed after swimming an he always looks so comfy in it! It can be bought direct from the Water Babies online shop for £22.99.
