Little Swimmers

They definitely don't keep poo from making a huge mess!

Has anyone found another swim solution for toddlers that doesn't allow water in?

  • There is no good solution. Part of it depends on how well the diaper fits. Even then, no matter how well it fits, as the baby twists and turns gaps will form around different parts of the legs. That lets water inside the diaper. Generally, they are designed to keep fairly solid poop contained in the minutes it takes mom to notice and get the kid out of the pool. If a baby still has runny or mushy poop, nothing will help. If the baby has diareha, then he shouldn't be in the pool for at least 10 days from the last runny poop.

    I-play does make swim pants that you can wash -

    but again, they will still gap a little as the child moves around.

  • I don't think that there is an easier solution. We have 2 swimsuits both with built in diaper bottoms. When we us our community pool I use a swim diaper underneath the swim suit just for added protection but at the neighbors house I only use the swim suit.
