Can you wear the swim diaper under other clothing?
Like all other reusable swim diapers, ours are designed to hold solids only. If your baby is not eating solid foods yet, we recommend adding a disposable swim nappy underneath. I know we are here to help save and save, but since it’s really tricky containing all forms of liquids insides, this is the best solution.
Avoid wearing a regular disposable nappy underneath since it will disintegrate in the pool, and with the salt or chlorine can cause nappy rash.
It also makes that nappy change even more difficult, since a regular disposable nappy can get caught up in the mesh lining.
Wearing a pocket nappy underneath will absorb even more water, and can weigh your little one down. Now unless you’re training the next Micheal Phelps, we suggest you avoid doing this.
It’s a tricky balance between creating something which lets your little one glide through the water at lightning speed, and absorbing everything in their wake. Our reusable swim nappy provides the perfect balance.
What about pee?
The fact that they’re not completely absorbent means that it helps with the change and stops your little one from getting cold.
Remember it’s not just infants which pee in the pool…and public places are usually chlorinated.
Regular disposable nappies contain sodium polyacrylate water crystals, which are really good at absorbing liquid at a normal rate. But when you throw a swimming pools worth at them, they get a little overwhelmed. I know we are going off topic here but bare with us…basically high absorbing nappies are a bad idea to swim with because they will get heavy and bulky quickly!!
Stubborn Stains & Odours..
An overnight soak in hot water with a little fairy liquid can do the trick. Wash in the washer with a regular full load. Line dry outside with the reusable swim nappy turned inside out.
Where are your reusable swim nappies from?
Our nappies are all designed in the UK and put together in our factory in China.
How are reusable swim nappies different from regular pocket nappies ?
There are many types of reusable nappies, ie pocket, all in ones, charcoal lined, snap ons. The list is ever growing. The main difference is that reusable swim nappies are designed to catch solids only, whereas pocket nappies and others are designed to catch both liquid and solids.
We don’t add any absorbable into our swim nappies because they will take on way too much water and droop. Trust us that will be much much messier.
