Fab Find Friday…Body Glide…

Written by Dawn.

Body Glide? That is a Fab Find Friday? I am sure you are wondering that exact thing. Or you might even be thinking “what the heck is Body Glide?”

And, no, believe it or not, this is not a running post from me :). True, Body Glide is used primarily by runners, cyclists and swimmers to prevent chafing during long workouts or races. BUT on Jackson’s third family vacation I learned another invaluable use of this wonderful stuff…

It prevents chafing for boys wearing swim trunks. And since swim trunk summer is rapidly approaching this might be something other moms want to hear about!!

Our first vacation where Jackson could run on the beach and really play on the sand was when he was 20 months old. I never even considered that his swim trunks would rub against his legs and cause awful sores on his legs. But they did.  He was miserable and I felt horrible. Another mom on the beach commiserated with me and told me her son had the same problem. She gave me the simple fix of Body Glide and said it would be a lifesaver.

That year it was too late, as Jackson’s sores could not heal in a week to start using the Body Glide so he spent the week wearing swim diapers only instead of swim trunks. BUT we were ready for the next year…

Before every day at the pool and/or beach we applied Body Glide liberally to the insides of Jackson’s legs and…NO chafing…at all. The difference was remarkable. And in what I am sure I will hear about later :)…maybe just maybe it was so successful that the grown men in our family even started using it :).

So, if you vacation at the beach and you have boys…this is something that could be a lifesaver for you as well. Because it is just too hard to see little guys like this in pain…


What is something you have found that is a lifesaver for your summer vacation?
