Swimming is one of my kids’ favorite activities, especially this summer with the hot weather we have been having. If you are looking for us, we are in one pool or another, wet from head to toe! Once your child is toilet trained, there is less to worry about when it comes to undergarments, but for those little ones, it’s essential that nothing slips when they are in the pool. There is nothing worse than your little one being the reason to drain the pool!
We have had ample opportunity to test out the swim diapers on the market. There are two kinds of swim diapers, reusable and disposable. We tried our two of each and have expanded our swim diaper horizons!
Disposable Swim Diapers
Babyganics just release their new Color Changing Disposable Swim Diapers. These diapers are adorned with a cute green frog on the front and back, which changes color as your child is exposed to the sun. This is the first product to introduce this new innovation in swim diapers offering baby-safe protection and inventive, functional technology.
I’m always concerned about my daughters delicate baby skin get colored by the sun and I’m frequently lathering her in sunscreen, but I love the quick visual reminder these swim diapers offer to reapply. These diapers are sized small, medium and large and range from 16 to 26 pounds. The easy tearaway sides make it easy for quick removal at the end of a swim or if they get soiled in the middle of the fun!
Huggies and Pampers both offer a disposable swim diaper, both of which are quite similar. They both offer the bright colorful patterns! Huggies Little Swimmers are known to have Winnie the Pooh characters or, more recently, Finding Dory, which the kids love! Pampers Splashers offer the same fun loving character equivalent with Elmo and Dora the Explorer! Both companies have sized their swimmers the same way the size their diapers, so if you wear one of the two brands, it makes it easy to select your disposable swim diaper size. Huggies cover children between 16 to 26 pounds while Pampers sizes go all the way up to 34 pounds. They both offer adjustable tabs on the side that make it easy to tighten them around the legs and remove them. Whether you go with Huggies or Pampers, they will keep the mess inside and won’t have you draining any pools!
Remember disposable diapers are meant to keep in a bowel movement, so don’t rely on the for protection for too long before going in the pool!
Reusable swim diapers
Our earth is a sacred place and it is our job to take care of the environment. We all have our own ways of lessening our carbon footprint, and using reusable swim diapers is a fun an fashionable way to do so! If your kids are in the water as much as mine, then reusable swim diapers are the way to go!
Bumkins offer a variety of styles and colors, including a whole line of DC Comic Prints and Dr. Seuss! Simply wear and wash again and again! Bumkins swim diapers are adorned with adjustable side-snaps that allow for the perfect fit and quick change. The elastic around the waist and thighs keeps everything inside. Choose from one of the two snap sizes to ensure a comfortable snug fit. I love the ability to match reusable swim diapers with cute two piece bathing suits like this one from Snapper Rock!
Honest Company, the company that so many people love for their fashionable diapers, now offers the same reliable and fashionable swim diapers! Honest swim diapers are bright, durable and comfortable against your child’s skin. Pull the waistband tighter for a snug fit with the adjustable waist. The elasticized band around the waist and legs, fit nice and snug and pull on and off easily. Honest swim diapers are available from 11 to 35 pounds and are sized small, medium and large. As mentioned above, I love the fashion aspect to reusable diapers. Honest offers matching swim shirts and sun hats to complete the outfit!
