Baby SwimSuit Challenge!


Gabe and I have been planning a vacation...and we are torn on whether or not to take Brigitte with us. IF we decide to bring her, well that raises another difficult decision....

WHICH SWIMSUIT SHALL WE PURCHASE???

Thats right. I am opening a baby swimwear debate. Its hard to go wrong with stuffing any chubby baby into lycra...but I am willing to splurge for the sake of spoiling my little one, and thus a difficult decision MUST be reached.  i challenge all you moms to post your cutest swim photos of your kids! or hunt down the worlds cutest swimsuit and help me narrow it down!

* AND FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE JUDGING ME RIGHT NOW BECAUSE 1 ITS FEBRUARY AND 2 THIS IS RIDICULOUS....JUST REMEMBER THAT BRIGITTE COULD POTENTIALLY BE MY ONLY GIRL AND THUS ENTITLED TO A CUTE GIRLY SWIMMY SUIT*

Here are just a few examples of whats out there:

























Also.....What is you opinion of the BABY BIKINI???? Adorable? Or shameful?

Shameful. Start them wearing a bikini at 1 and guess where you will be by the time they are 16? I love them all. But especially the purple and green on and the pink one with the fake whitish flowers.

They are all adorable, I couldn't choose. My thoughts on the baby bikini are more the issue of covering their skin from the sun. I buy suits that have strong SPF protections and cover as much as possible, while being cute. I just don't want the little ones to burn. Good luck! Where would this vacation take you to?

You can enter on her page in if you want to join in, you send her an email. It is listed on one of her recent posts. it should be fun but crazy because I will have t figure it out right after i get home.

Girl, you don't need anymore help, those are all cute. My opinion, I LOVE the very first photo. Where did you find it? Don't be posting cute pic's like that & not telling us where to find them too. I NEED to know. And as for as the baby bikini goes, I prefer a full piece for the first year or two yrs at least. You might want to ask Alisa, sh egot Addi a super cute two piece last yr.

Also wanted to thank you for your living scripture's blog, I got mine in the mail this weekend & love it. Nessa has been playing w/ the free magnets on our fridge while I cook peacfully.

Baby bikini's rock!! But, maybe I'm the wrong one to ask ... in my pre-garment days (also pre fat days!!) I was totally sporting the bikinis.
I love that blue one! I hope you get it Ü

So cute! I am all about the baby bikini, the belly chubs it too cute. But I get Nichole's issue with sun protection. My girl has the skin to handle the sun, so I don't know. I love the pink one with the flowers on them. I get Bella's suit at old navy every year, because they are always super cute and cheap, my favorite combo.

So this is a vote from my 4 yr old Dejah....she picked her favorites as soon as she saw the pictures. Coming in at #1....The 3rd one down!? The light pink one with the flowers was the winner of them all. #2 is toward the bottom. Pink halter top with florral design. And in 3rd place...the Blue and pink one. I personally think they are all cute! As far as the baby bikini thing...you sure have picked a "controversial" topic :> I would say no. I agree with the first comment by Maren. Also...I can't STAND seeing little girls wear them! I mean isn't the point to show off a HOT body? And little girls just don't need to show that much skin. Good luck. Where is the Vaca going to be?

Amanda said...

I love the green one, 5th on from the top. I am not a fan of the baby bikini at all. however I wouldn't judge anyone who chose to put their child in one. :) I agree with the first comment. you are just starting them out early.

Those swimming suits are so cute. I think it's too hard to choose. Although I really liked the first one a lot. I don't think babies in bikinis are cute. Especially when there are so many other cute options. I know you will probably have your mom babysit. But I would totally babysit your little butter ball if you want. I say leave the baby at home and go on a vacation. Maybe I'll join you. J/K. (I am all about going on vacation without kids). Although you will miss her so much!

I think you've got it covered. Any one of those are darling! I love the pink floral halter top one (near the bottom.

ADORABLE!!!!(just more sun tan lotion i guess) This is not a stupid decision either! I love it and where are you going on vacation?

megan&steve said...

I've always thought that a two piece for girlies in diapers would be much easier to change. They have cute tankinis for little gals so she doesn't have to look super scandelous. I dunno. Its up to you in the end.

Do these come in adult sizes? Ok, maybe it IS only the 2nd of February but I'm already planning as well! You should play the awful trick that my parents used on us girls. When I was 5 and my older sister was 6 they told us we could have one bikini....did we want it now or later? Right. Guess what we picked. Later, when we wanted another one they kindly reminded us that we already used up our chance. Evil geniuses is what i call them but you better believe I'll be using that on my little girls, especially if they're ANYTHING like me!

PS - She is so cute! She'll look amazing in whatever you put her in!

Okay....you gotta let me in on where you found those freakin cute bathing suits!!! I have an 8 month old girl who is probably for sure gonna be my only girl and I spoil her like crazy too!! I found your blog through Erin's, she told me one day about the crazy evil annonymous commenter so I came to check it out and have to admit I have been anonymously stalking you since!! I promise I'm not scary though!! haha!! Anywho..you are too cute and I love reading your blog...and you MUST reveal where you found those bathing suits :)
