Best Baby Float Swimsuit

A floatation suit, like this JoJo Maman Bebe red-striped number in a retro style, will make your babe buoyant with a lot less fuss than those blow-up arm bands. The individual floats can be removed as your child gets heavier and more confident in the water. (Of course, a baby float swimsuit does not take the place of your watchful eye.) Also available in a pink-stripe, traditional tank style.

Best Newborn Swimsuit

Applying sunscreen to newborns younger than 6 months of age isn’t recommended, so the best swimsuit for the tiniest tadpoles will give full-body coverage with UPF 50 fabric. Snaps at the stride are a must for diaper changes, and shoulder placket snaps for smooth on and off is ideal. This Coolibar Baby Beach One-Piece Swimsuit in the 0-6 month size checks all the boxes.
