iso baby wetsuit (long shot I know)

We're all in this together, remember, so while the world is collapsing around our ears it might be nice to have a place to talk about new-found frugalities and old-fashioned eco-living. And mooncups.

iso baby wetsuit (long shot I know)

So I signed n up for water babies (gulp at the price but she had Xmas money..) anyway, she needs a wetsuit neoprene wrap thing. Does anyone have one lurking at the back of a cupboard somewhere? She is almost 10months so it needs to be appropriate size, will pay and cover p&p, thanks for looking

Are you sure you need one? Water babies usually use pretty warm pools, and she's not a little tiddler. Maybe worth trying a lesson first if you don't have particular reason to think it's a freezing cold pool.
Ah I see you've found some anyway :)

Ah ceem, no that's what we do use, the wetsuits waterbabies talk about are sort of thick wraps for keeping them warm. Which we didn't use, even when ours were tiddlers cos they don't seem to mind cold pools.

Ceem thanks but it is the wrap around neoprene thing I need.

I was told when I booked that I would need one, it's at a hotel pool so maybe not as warm as usual??

Thanks for looking.

I think I have one but it's a boy (blue) s & 12-18 months. If its what I think you mean then it velcros shut at the side, shoulders and crotch?

It's yours if you want it. It's been well used so wouldn't dream of taking anything for it.

It's similar to the blue one here (though an older model)
