HUGGIES™ Little Swimmers™ Line


With summer in full bloom here we spend 80% of our days outside in our pool. No really... we do. Thats one reason why I invested in a canopy to help block my children from the sun. They were outside so much it concerned us.

Even with a great canopy though our boys are constantly getting sun. Our yard has little to now shade. With 95 plus degree weather and a strong sun, I needed sunscreen for my children.

I never knew Huggies had a line of sun screen. I am so glad I do now. With the HUGGIES™ Little Swimmers™ Sun Care Lotions I actually enjoy the lathering up part. Where as before I dreaded the greasy feeling... and smell of most traditional childrens sun screen.

The Sun Care Lotions by Huggies have the creamiest feel to them. I assure you they dont leave your hands nasty! I also was pleasantly surprised by the smell... I was sent an unscented version as well as a melon version. Both of them are fantastic! Calebs favorite though was the squirt bottle kind. He got such a kick out of spraying it on his brother.

Plus, their lotions have the highest rating from the FDA, Very Water Resistant, means they maintain sun protection for at least 80 minutes in the water.

His diaper isnt poopie :-)Huggies is more famously known for the ever so popular Little Swimmers®. I have used these for years now... and have always been pleased. Im not sure Huggies wants me to say this... but I must share this tip from our fellow review mom Kelly. If you want to conserve these Huggies you can... We use atleast two a day on a hot day... One in the morning... one in the afternoon. So a pack of these would go by quick in our home if we just tossed them after one use.

Heres a tip... Wash them!! You seriously can put them into your washing machine w/ regular clothes... and then hang them outside to dry. They work just like new the next time. We have done this severeal times and have had no issues. I even put one in the dryer.

So to those eco-mamas like myself... this is a fantastic product :-)

As you can see from Christopher modeling to the left (Kellys middle child). He went through the pool, sand box and then playground without any problems. That swimmy even held a whopper later that evening, HAH!

Huggies also has a new HUGGIES™ Little Swimmers™ Sun Sensors. I used these this past weekend at the beach. It was so nice being able to glance over at my childrens sensor. I never worried about them getting TO much direct sun. Little Swimmers™ Sun Sensors help avoid sunburn before it stops the fun. They start out yellow and turn deep orange when exposed to the sun’s harmful UVB rays – the radiation that causes sunburn. You can apply them to the childs clothing or skin. I put sun screen on before putting them on... and they stayed on just fine after letting the sun screen dry a bit.

I even used them on my 3 1/2 year old :-) He liked the Octopus design best.
