Happy Nappy Wetsuit Review

The happy nappy wetsuit is a swim nappy and wetsuit in one. It is designed to prevent leaks and keep baby warm when swimming.

We have just got back from our first holiday as a family of four. In the mad rush to pack everything whilst trying to juggle a cluster feeding baby and an excited toddler I didn’t have time to try on his wetsuit before leaving.  The first time we put it on was in the changing rooms just before going swimming. I was really impressed with how well the wetsuit fitted. It was the perfect length in the body and tight enough around the legs to keep any leaks in but also not too tight to be uncomfortable or bulge. One thing I love about Splash about UK is the fact that they don’t have generic sizes by babies age. By inputting a few measurements into their size calculator it will tell you what size you need for your baby. Luckily in Eli’s case it was spot on. The wetsuit can be a bit hard to get on but the zip at the back is really useful. I must admit when I was walking to the pool I did feel a bit smug and proud because he looked so cute in the Noahs’s ark print which I love. This was his first time swimming. At seven weeks old I wasn’t sure how he would find the whole experience, so many new sensations and noises. He loved it though and I am sure it was partly down to the wetsuit which kept him lovely and warm. At one point we stopped to get a drink and I had planned on drying him off and wrapping him in his towel but he was so cosy and relaxed in his suit he fell straight to sleep on the changing mat and had a super long nap.


  • Feels really well made and high quality
  • looks great and comes in a massive range of different prints.
  • prevents embarrassing leaks
  • keeps baby warm while swimming


  • Its a little tight to get on but then all wetsuits are.

I love this wetsuit so much I will definitely be going back for another when he outgrows this (that wont be long at the rate this little dumpling grows) We will be starting swimming lessons soon and this suit will meet all the requirements, keep him warm and look good at the same time. I would one hundred percent recommend these wetsuits for baby swimmers.
