Toddler Swimming Essentials


Hi everyone.

We went swimming today and I thought I would do a quick blog post on Oliver’s swimming essentials now he’s a toddler. They are:


  • Swim shorts or a swimsuit.
  • A soft, warm towel.
  • A swimming nappy to avoid any nastiness in the pool.
  • A float vest, I’ve found this really helps his confidence.
  • A water ball or some form of toy to play with.
  • Baby powder, I use this to dry Oliver faster once we’re out.
  • Change for lockers.
  • A little snack as swimming is rather tiring!
  • A bag for the wet items (not pictured).


I’ve found swimming SO much easier now Oliver’s a toddler. When he was a baby we had what felt like our entire house contents with us everywhere we went!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little post and it’s helped some of you.

Thanks for reading!
