A SwimZip Shout Out!

SwimZip on the trampoline, in the backyard, at a birthday party, at the beach, by the lake, at the waterfalls, at home...I guess it's safe to say that our 3.5 year old is obsessed with her SwimZip!

I first heard of SwimZip from the amazing PTPA site.  Parent Tested Parent Approved  showcases all the great products for babies, kids, parents, and families that are approved by parent testers.

Since we live on an island and Little One is outside pretty much all the time, it was a no brainer to get her a SwimZip. We live very close to several beaches and Little One is a water baby! When it comes to keeping her safe from the harmful effects of UV rays, we take things seriously. What a fun and stylish way to keep Little One's skin protected!

We are very pleased with the Ruffle Me Pretty SwimZip chosen by Little One herself. I love the fact that the zipper goes all the way down to make it easy to get the top on and off. Other swim tops have zippers that only go a portion of the way down and make it a challenge to get in and out of really quickly.

Other features I love about SwimZip:

  • UV 50+ to block 99% of UVA and UVB rays
  • Chlorine resistant 
  • Comfy tagless neck
  • Zipper flap for safe zipping

Tips for keeping tiny tots cool and protected in the Summer:
  • Keep your children (and yourself!) hydrated! Make sure to carry lots of water with you and offer liquids to your children regularly throughout the day.
  • Keep in the shade during peak hours! In the hours when the sun is its strongest, keep your children in the shade. We have a sports umbrella that we take to the beach. If you can find a nice shady tree to sit under, that's good too. Sometimes heading indoors for a while is a good idea too.
  • Refreshing, cool treats also keep kids hydrated. Offer your children watermelon slices, refreshing fruit...and we sometimes let Little One have a fresh fruit freezy or an ice cream cone.
  • Apply sunblock a few times a day when outdoors (especially if your kids are in and out of the water).
  • Keep them covered with a SwimZip and a wife brimmed hat!
  • Many people forget to protect the eyes. A GOOD pair of sunglasses is important to protect the eyes from harmful rays. 

If you're planning on spending a lot of time outdoors with your children this Summer, I highly recommend SwimZip! They're a PTPA Award Winner for a reason!

I love how it protects from the sun. With these heat waves, we are never too cautious

Christine said...

Thank you! A lot of my friends actually think I'm overly paranoid because I make sure Little One is covered up, in the shade, and slathered with sunscreen! LOL!

Christine said...

Me too! They are perfect for swimming, lounging, playing...AND the kids are COVERED!

Christine said...

YES! I agree! That is exactly what I think! We can never be too careful in this heat...especially with our wee ones!
