  • They have those Little Swimmers for when the little ones are going swimming. I don't know if they make them small enough for little babies, but you could check. We bought ours at Wal-Mart in the baby section.

  • My husband lived near the sea for 25 years!  He says to tell you that he grew up naked on the beach, in the sea. 

    He says if possible, he would still love to do it.

    Where he is from, everyone's children play in the sea naked!!!

  • I'd say let him go naked, but keep in mind that sand is HOT in the sun. Also, it could chafe his little bottom, so have a back up plan. About those little swimmers, they only contain reasonably solid poo. Pee comes right out! Liquid poo runs out too. (sorry, it's yucky but true) Cloth swim diapers are awesome if you can find one.
