Changing with Your Baby

Changing with Your Baby
30 September 2014 2053 Views No comments

Taking your child swimming is a great activity that will be fun for them and a fantastic bonding experience for both of you. However, that doesn't mean that it will always be easy; some aspects of it can be a real hassle. One of the trickiest things is getting changed with a baby in tow.

You might find that there is nowhere to safely set your baby down while you get changed, and there is no way you can get into your swimming costume while holding your baby at the same time. By the time both of you are ready for swimming, it will be time to go home! Here are a few tips to make the process easier.

Go with someone else

If your swimming pool has unisex changing rooms, you can go with your partner and have them hold your baby while you get changed, and vice-versa. If not, you can go with a friend or relative. You could even go with another parent and look after both babies while they get changed, to make it easier on both of you.

Get changed before you arrive

To make getting changed a lot easier, you could put your swimming costume on under your clothes in the comfort of your own home, where you can put your baby down somewhere safe. Slip a T-shirt and pair of trousers over the top, and you can head down to the swimming pool and get changed in seconds.

You can do the same for your child. If you can get your baby changed into a Konfidence AquaNappy before heading out, then it will be much easier than attempting this at the swimming pool.

Take your own changing mat

If you are going to be getting changed at the swimming pool and don't want to put your child down on an unsafe surface, you could take your own mat with you to make sure that they're safe. Konfidence Roll & Go Baby Changers are a useful accessory when swimming, as they are soft and warm so you can use them to keep your baby safe while changing, and as they're washable they're hygienic, too!
