Heading to the pool or beach this summer?
But having a baby who hasn’t finished potty trained?
Well, as a new mother, with a regular nappy or even no nappy on your baby, you might have this unforgettable experience in your whole life:
You glance around and find everyone in the pool is looking in your direction with a look of horror on their faces. Then you see it. A big brown poopy slowly rising to the surface like a submarine.
Yep, your baby pooped and the poop escaped!
The above scenario can easily be avoided with the use of a swim diaper. Unlike the regular diaper, the sole purpose of a swim diaper is to contain poop and prevent the spread of all the nastiness that might comes with it. What’s more, a swim diaper helps prevent the spread of illness and disease from poop accidents.
If your baby loves swimming, you will definitely need a swim diaper for him/her!
What is a swim diaper?
Swim diapers are designed for use in pools or beaches. They provide adequate security to your baby against water, as well as preventing leakages from the baby. Additionally, the swim diapers are well adapted and won’t cause excessive weight to the baby.
Different types of swim diapers
*Remember that swim diapers need to have a snug fit to contain poop, so they will probably be tighter than your everyday diapers.
Swim diapers are available in two different varieties, disposable and reusable. Let’s take a closer look at the two as well as the pros and cons of each.
Disposable: These are made to be used once and then thrown away. They are cheap and offer convenience, but they tend to sag and are more prone to letting something slip out.
-Cost-effective if you only go swimming a few times over summer
-Low maintenance; simply throw in the trash
-The cost can add up if you frequently take your baby swimming
– can only be used once
-looks like a diaper
Reusable: As the name suggests, they can be used many times. You’ll find multiple closure styles, including snaps, velcro, and pull-up designs. They generally fit better because they don’t stretch out and sag. The price may be higher but they are more economical if your baby is a frequent swimmer.
-cheaper if you and your baby swim a lot
-look like regular swimmers
-softer against baby’s skin
-more work- you have to wash them
-can be difficult to choose the right size
Which type of swim diaper is better?
If you go swimming several times during the season, then buying a pack of disposable diapers is a better idea, money-wise.
If you go to the pool often, you should invest in a few reusable diapers. Even though these are initially more expensive, they are going to pay off in the long run, since you can use them many times, especially if you have a swimming pool at home.
Whichever type you choose, keep in mind that neither type is absorbent and meant to keep in liquids, so don’t put them on your child in advance or you risk having urine everywhere.
How to Buy A Good Swim Diaper?
Disposable: Cheaper disposable diapers are generally poor quality and often sag or worse; fall apart. So it is safe for you to stick to the brand names (like Huggies or Pampers). And the most important step is to choose the right size for your little one.
Reusable: There are non-adjustable and adjustable swim diapers on the market. In comparison, adjustable swim diapers are convenient and economical in the long run. Reusable swim diapers that have Velcro or snaps at the side usually offer a better fit. Also, since babies grow pretty quickly, they might grow into a larger reusable size before the summer is over. Consider how quickly your little one is growing before investing in a reusable swim diaper.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Can swim diapers absorb pee or use as night diapers?
Swim Diapers are designed for holding solid waste, so they don’t have much absorbency to hold pee.
Thus, we do not recommend using them as night diapers.
Which size should I choose?
Generally speaking, Size S is suitable for babies from birth to 2 years old; Size-M is suitable for 2-3 years old babies.
If your baby has thicker legs than other babies at the same age, we suggest you measure the waistline and thigh line of your baby or purchase the Size-M for him/her.
How to wash my swim diaper?
They are machine-washable.
Wash temperature should be less than 86°F(30°C) to avoid the PUL from delaminating.
Please do not wash them together with your other clothes.
Swimming is a great activity for young and old alike. We believe that InnoBeta reusable swim diapers are great in preventing awkward accidents and provide your kids with trouble-free swimming experience.
