Just because your little one is in diapers doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a day of fun at the beach or pool together. Many different baby swim diapers on the market will allow your little one to enjoy the water without you having to worry about an embarrassing — and messy — accident.
Swim diapers are different from regular diapers in that they won’t expand and sag when wet. If you’ve ever seen a regular diaper in water, you know what a soggy mess it is, which is why it’s essential to invest in a swim diaper for summer water fun. It’s also important to remember that, while swim diapers are designed to contain solids, they are non-absorbent, meaning liquids will pass through — so you will have to change your baby back into a regular diaper after swimming.
Swim diapers come in reusable and disposable versions, and both work just as well to contain the mess while your baby swims. We suggest buying disposable swim diapers as a backup for when you know you will be out for a long time.
