Swim pants for infants?

My daughter is over a year old but very petite. I have taken her in the water (were in FL) before with just a diaper but they fall apart quickly and make a huge mess. What do you do for swim pants for a small infant? She is currently in 3-6 month clothing.

  • the swim diapers should work. Like the little swimmers, or splashers? Those are great for the water.

  • get some swin diapers they work, regular diapers fill up and start making a mess with those little absorbant crystal things, its worth the money

  • The problem is she is too small for the smallest size diaper they make. I need some made for infants.

  • Another quick question...could those be worn under a swim suit (assuming that the swim suit had enough room for it? Or are these better used alone?
