Learning to swim with Konfidence

I’ve always been a strong swimmer both as a child and as an adult. On holidays I was always first in the pool and last out, and I loved it, so it was really important to me that Amelia was just as confident in the water and after she turned 6 months I was keen to have swimming lessons.

I know I’m not the only mum that feels like they are constantly googling things. We were already battling weaning, next was swimming so it was time for me to learn all about babies and swimming. What would I need? What did the water temperature need to be? Did she need a body warmer? Did it need to have floats around the middle? Off to Google I went, But as a mummy blogger couldn’t resist asking the mums on Twitter what their must have swimming essentials were and Sophia recommended Konfidence.


After about 5 seconds I knew I wanted to get our swimming supplies from them and after Sophia kindly introduced me to the Konfidence Team, they were kind enough to send me out their platinum package which I can say with 100% certainty WAS the best swimming starter pack to get!
The platinum package comes with everything you will need for your swimming journey and it was the perfect starter kit to get. As pictured above, you get your choice of Babywarma, AquaNappy and NeoNappy, then you get the Roll and Go Babychanger along with some flashing toys and a Swim bag.


The package was perfect as I was nervous about Amelia being too cold in the pool but the Babywarma Wetsuit ensured she was padded and warm enough, it had adjustable shoulder straps and opens completely flat so it was easy to lay Amelia on it just before our lesson started and took no time at all.

What if she did a poo? Having the AquaNappy under the NeoNappy meant we were protected and could enjoy our lessons without worrying about any accidents and mummy getting banned from Swimming lessons! haha.


The Roll and Go Changing Mat was an unsuspected favourite and was a lifesaver in the changing rooms when I had a Hangry baby on my hands! It’s chlorine-resistant which makes it super easy to clean, and as it’s made from soft neoprene with a close knit warm laminate cover round it, it’s both warm and comfortable for her. It’s got a non-slip back and of course, it rolls up and fits in the swim bag easily, it’s an essential for us!


Sadly we weren’t able to take photos of her in the pool so we only got these changing room shots but, nevertheless a happy girl in the pool! I can’t wait to see how she progresses with her lessons!

Thank you so much Konfidence for giving us the greatest start to our swimming journey! I can’t wait as she gets older, to get her some of the other bits and help aid her swimming!

  • The package looks amazing! I really want a specific changing mat for swimming rather than our usual one so will have a look. I never even thought that the chlorine could damage our normal one. Eleanor’s just outgrown her swimming nappy so that’s on my shopping list too. She swims in a heated pool so at the moment that’s all she wears. How’s she getting on with swimming lessons? Xx

    • Couldn’t recommend the mat enough and we’ve been so impressed with the swimming nappy so would 100% recommend those! She is doing really well, she’s used to going underwater and is happy to either kick her legs or paddle her arms but not together haha. She does try and drink the water which I’m assuming is normal otherwise she’s literally so so happy in water haha! xxx

    We loved our baby warmer whilst henry was little. And this set looks super cute with the polka dots!!

  • Johnny hates swimming without his konfidence warmer! Makes such a difference when we use it, so much happier. I need to get a bigger size! Xx

    I really need to get my bum in gear and organise swimming lessons for E. We go swimming as a family every week or so but I’d like to do structured lessons. Can’t believe all the items you get in the pack – little A is totally kitted out! I’m so pleased she’s enjoying her swimming.

  • Ah this is such a fab set! I can’t wait to go swimming with our little one xx

  • The little wet suit actually looks SO cute!! We’ve only been swimming with Tyler once so far but I do really want to go again sometime soon! We can’t take photos at our pool either which is so sad isn’t it! I mean, I understand why they implement the no photos rule but it’s still frustrating haha! x

  • My eldest ended up so upset during his lessons we stopped booking them. I think I’d like to give it a go again now he is a bit older.

  • Michaela Gingell

    Ohhhh my goodness. She looks
    Adorable. Such a pain you can’t take snaps in the pool 🙁
