We're official Swimologists for Konfidence plus giveaway worth £50!

I'm thrilled to have been asked for Ethan and I to become official swimologists by swimming product brand Konfidence!

You may have seen their logo pop up in my side bar recently and have wondered what it's all about, so I'll just give you a bit of an introduction..

Who are Konfidence?
Founded in 1998, Konfidence is a family run business which quickly established itself as the UK’s leading manufacturer of high quality swimming products, buoyancy aids and UVPF sun protection clothing and wetsuits for babies up to 14 years. Its award-winning products are now sold in 27 countries worldwide, including 14 countries in Europe, USA, South Africa, Malaysia, China and Hong Kong. This year marks their 15th anniversary.

Why we are thrilled to be on board..
I've taken Ethan swimming a few times before and he's loved it. He was at his most confident in the water when he was youngest, I think this is because as humans as we get older we start to become more and more anxious/worried about our surroundings. I said to myself that I wanted to start taking him swimming more so he would always feel confident in the water, but a lack of time got in the way and we would often forget.

When Konfidence asked us to be swimologists this was an opportunity I knew I couldn't refuse. We'd be attending a swimming course over a 10 week period at Swimkidz and I'd pick up so many great tips to show Ethan how to grow his confidence in the water. They'll be other parents and other babies at the class, so an excellent social opportunity for both Ethan and I. Konfidence have just sent us all of the swimming gear we need for our lessons. And we can't wait to get in the water to test everything out!

We start our course next Tuesday but for now Ethan's having so much fun playing with the light up blinky toys that we were sent! If you're after some light up blinkies yourself, Konfidence sell them here for £5.99. They're fun for bath time and also act as a fun visual educational tool to encourage babies to swim towards them. 

To celebrate us becoming swimologists for Konfidence they have kindly agreed to provide one my readers with some competition prizes worth £50! 

There is one prize package to be won and it will contain the following:
You can click on the above links to find out more about each product or you can read below:

Konfidence Babywarma®
Made from a flexible 2mm-thick soft neoprene, the Babywarma® enables babies aged 0-24 months to stay warmer in the swimming pool for much longer than would be possible without it, and provides parents with a higher grip surface when holding their child in the water. It is 100% UV protective, and features clever design techniques that ensure a snug, “huggable” fit, for maximum safety, comfort and performance – it also opens flat to allow quick nappy changes. 
  • Awarded Gold by Mother & Baby in the Best Safety Product 2011-2012 category.

 Konfidence AquaNappy

Designed in partnership with swim schools and parents, 
the one size fits all AquaNappy for babies aged 
from 3 to 30 months, features a unique triple-layered 
polyester design with elasticised leg openings. It has a durable polyester outer, a recycled plastic middle barrier layer and a soft protective inner that sits next to the baby’s skin – all in one product - so there is no need to wear another nappy over or under.  It also offers great value for money, as well as being eco-friendly.

Konfidence NeoNappy
The Konfidence Neo Nappy features an elasticated waist and leg hems made of soft stretchy Lycra, and is  worn over a normal swim nappy such as the Konfidence AquaNappy, to provide that all-important extra layer of protection. 
  • Approved for use in all major swim UK baby swim schools

Konfidence Roll & Go Changing Mat
Perfect for the swimming pool or when you are on the go, Konfidence’s extra-large lightweight changing mat is made from 3mm thick chlorine-resistant neoprene cushioned foam, with an embossed treaded underside, which provides grip so that it won’t slip or slide on wet surfaces. The practical ‘roll and go’ design with integral lycra strap, which fastens around the rolled up mat to keep it secure, means it is easy to carry to and from the pool – or use as a normal changing mat when out and about.   

  • Awarded Gold in Mother & Baby’s 2011-2012 Best Travel Product category
  • Awarded Gold for Best Travel Accessory 2013 by Loved By Parents
