Why it is important for the kids to wear a wetsuit? Their smaller bodies cool down faster than adults and even if we don’t feel cold they might. On the other hand, they are always the last to admit that they are cold. Playing on the beach and in the water is fun and if you are cold you have to go sit with your parents and that sucks. So: “No mom, I’m not cold!” Even though their lips are shaking and blue while they speak.

Protection from cold is not the only thing that a wetsuit is for. It’s also protection against the heat of the sun. There are various sunscreen protection lotions available in the market but your kids hate them for either the greasy feeling or the smell. If they simply wear a full body childrens wetsuit, it will protect their skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun. It’s a good protection against sunburn. You must know how sunburn can terribly hurt your children’s skin especially that they can be very sensitive. Protect your kids from the cold and the sun as well.

In addition, the beach is also home to other objects or particles that might hurt your kids while they play. These include little rocks, sand and possibly little jellyfishes that might lurk at the beach. Sand could easily scratch and irritate a little kid’s skin.

If your child has sensitive skin, childrens wetsuits should not be out of your list.

Will likes his wetsuit!!!

About Kathy Dowsett

I believe in protecting our oceans, lakes and rivers, as well as their aquatic life. I respect the work of conservation groups such as Save the Sharks, Save the Sea Turtles and Save our Wrecks. I believe that the use of plastic bags/bottled water should be discouraged as plastic finds its way to the ocean. I also support Diving for the Disabled and Swimming for the Disabled. As a PADI-certified diver, my interest in diving led to the opening in July 2008 of kirkscubagear, my online business. My site offers more than 2,000 products, including freediving, swimming and outdoor equipment. My continuing goal is to encourage diving and offer customers a shopping alternative for the purchase of scuba gear.
