When my daughter turned 5 months old I enrolled her in swimming classes at a local specialist baby swimming pool- Calmababy. As well as a swimming nappy, they also insist on a Happy Nappy being worn as they consider them to be leak proof.
There are so many varieties and styles of Happy Nappy available. I chose this one as it looked very much like normal swimming costume and was suitable from around 3-8 months. I purchased ours from Amazon for £16. As well as preventing leaks the Happy Nappy has 100% Sun Block ARPANSA UPF50. My daughter has only used hers in the swimming pool however, so I could not comment on the sun protection.
I would describe both the fabric and styling around the legs as almost similar to a wet suit, it is a snug but comfortable fit to prevent leaks. It did take a few attempts before I could fit her into it with ease as there is a bit of a knack too it but it does fit beautifully once on. She is now 7 months old and I think we will get another couple of months use our of it which I think represents excellent value when you consider how quickly they grow.
The only downside is the straps keep falling down even when you re tie and tightened not sure if they have stretched or were always a bit on the loose side- however I just adjust eash time we use.
It washes very well and even after 9 washes still looks brand new. My daughter finds it very comfortable to wear and loves to get into her costume ready for swimming. We have had not had any leaks and I confident that we will not. I will most certainly buy her another one once she has outgrown this one.
