American Baby’s Baby Booty: Win Cute Snapper Rock Swimwear

Friday, July 5th, 2013

Yesterday, my little one and I spent our 1st full day at the beach this summer, and after about 5 minutes under the umbrella, I heard the dreaded “This is boring.” So the rest of our beach day consisted of her collecting seashells (and an accidental crab!), while I chased behind her applying sunblock every hour.

Thankfully, Snapper Rock has created a line of UV50+ swimwear for babies and kids that blocks 98% of UV rays. And, because no one should spend a beach day the way I did, we’re giving away a Snapper Rock top and bottom along with a Snapper Rock bucket hat and swim bag.

Leave a comment below, up to one a day between now and the end of the day on Wednesday, July 10th, and you can win a Snapper Rock UV50+ Swimwear Package, worth $127. If you win, you’ll have a choice of choice of a UV50 Top and Ruffle Bikini in Stars and Stripes in size 2, 3, or 4, or a UV50 short sleeve swim shirt and board shorts in any size 0 to 12.

Here’s where you can read the official rules. Goody luck!

Congratulations to our winner Joni Roller!

How I Save on Sunscreen

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

My daughters started camp at our town pool on Monday, so we met their counselors at orientation over the weekend. When the counselors met Lila, my particularly fair 3-year-old, one of them said, “Please pack plenty of sunscreen!” I have, but I’m also doing one better: I’m putting her in a SwimZip suit (there she is at right). SwimZip items are rated UV50+, and cover more than a bathing suit will, so I can cut back on the amount of sunscreen we go through–which is typically more than a bottle a week! The top is really easy for her to put on and take off herself, since it zips up like a jacket. (That’s key when she’s soaking wet–it’s great to not have to bother with yanking a tight shirt over her head.) And the other big perk is that SwimZip’s styles are totally adorable, and the girls’ options are different from anything I’ve seen.


SwimZip, sizes 6-12 months to 4T, $29.99.
