We are excited to announce that we have been chosen by Konfidence to be one of their official swimologists this year. I am not sure who is more excited me or the boys. We are joining some other fantastic bloggers.

Teaching the boys to swim has always been very important to me. Monkey has had classes since he was tiny, but Kipper has not spent as much time in the water as I would like. Partly because he was diagnosed with breathing difficulties when he was small. Not he is fully recovered its about time we revisited it. This is something we are looking forward to changing with Konfidence. Over the next few months we will be bringing you details about our journey.

We will also be sharing with you some of the products which Konfidence produce to help give both parents and their children confidence near the water. Konfidence was originally created by husband and wife couple when they were unable to find suitable flotation devices for their own children. From this the company’s flagship product the Konfidence Jacket was born. It is now the number one best-selling neoprene swimming buoyancy aid for children aged 1 to 7 years across the UK and Europe. Over the years Konfidence have added to their product range with baby swim wear, wetsuits, floatsuits, UV Suits and various beach and swim toys.

We are hoping to put the wetsuits to the test when we visit Rotterdam this week so keep an eye on instagram stories where they will be appearing. In a couple of months time we will also be putting the jackets through their paces at Splash Landings Hotel at Alton Towers. In the meantime the lovely people at Konfidence are giving my readers the chance to win a £50 voucher to spend on their website.
