It’s almost time for sunshine and fun times in the water. Unless you’re lucky enough to live somewhere you can swim year-round. In which case, I’m jealous! Being outdoors with kids and enjoying the water is so much fun, but you must have the right gear. This includes baby swimsuits, kids’ swimsuits, coverups, towels, and sunscreen.

The first thing you need for your kids is a swimsuit. There are many styles to choose from for boys and girls now. There is something out there for every child, from bright and colorful prints to protective fabrics. You can choose a one-piece, two-piece, or rashguard and short set. We’ve made a list of our favorites of each style for babies, toddlers, and kids to share with you, plus coverups and accessories.

Pay extra attention to the brand’s sizing chart when purchasing your baby’s swimsuit or coverup. These often differ depending on the brand. Another thing to consider is whether the suit has UPF built in. It is essential to have the proper protection plus sunscreen coverage because children’s skin is much more sensitive to the sun than ours. I hope you find some adorable swimsuits for days of fun in the sun!
