The Latest Baby Swim Gear

Bummis baby swim gear

Heading to the beach? Every year, we comb through the latest baby swim gear to choose the best environmental and social choices for hip swimming babies.

Because babies need more sun protection than older children and adults, and because most babies still need diapers, we need to treat them a bit differently than the rest of the family. Babies need sun hats and swim diapers. For extended periods in the sun, some parents find it easier to use swim shirts and sun suits for complete coverage.

Baby Sun Hats

Sun hats offer better coverage than sunscreen for the skin that is most often in the sun when you go to the beach with baby. This year we have four different sun hats in stock.
