Reusable Swim Diapers

I know people are eagerly awaiting spring, and with that in mind we thought a raffle would be in order.  iPlay has a great line of swimwear with built in swim diapers and we want to know your favorites!

Swimming diapers differ from regular cloth or disposable diapers. Cloth and disposable diapers are designed to be absorbent, but not waterlogged.  Swim diapers should fit snugly and securely, but not be tight to the point that it leaves marks. Reusable swim diapers cost much less than disposable swim diapers over all, and come in a variety of styles and colors.


Besides, most of you who have tried disposable swim diapers know, they really are not leak proof.  The first time I tried them, we were going to our first pool playdate and I put on a disposable swim diaper at home so I wouldn't have to deal with it when we got there.  Needless to say, by the time we reached our destination, my son's diaper, clothes and carseat was soaked.


There are health reasons to use a reusable swim diaper as well.  A parent can reduce the risk of spreading of E. coli in public or private swimming pools by always putting your child in a proper swim diaper. Many public pools now require approved swim diapers for babies and toddlers.

The CDC Recommends the following:

Three Steps for All Swimmers

Keep germs from causing recreational water illnesses (RWIs):
  • Don't swim when you have diarrhea. You can spread germs in the water and make other people sick.
  • Don't swallow the pool water. Avoid getting water in your mouth.
  • Practice good hygiene. Shower with soap before swimming and wash your hands after using the toilet or changing diapers. Germs on your body end up in the water.

Three Steps for Parents of Young Kids

Keep germs out of the pool:
  • Take your kids on bathroom breaks or check diapers often. Waiting to hear "I have to go" may mean that it's too late.
  • Change diapers in a bathroom or a diaper-changing area and not at poolside. Germs can spread in and around the pool.
  • Wash your child thoroughly (especially the rear end) with soap and water before swimming. Invisible amounts of fecal matter can end up in the pool.
