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.
