Are they worth it?

I'm going to get a little blow up pool for dd to splash in, I will be holding her bc she's only 5 months

Are the swim diapers worth it, or is the diapers ok,
Or even sans diaper because she's going to be the only one besides me in the little pool

They won't be as heavy as a diaper. A regular diaper will absorb A LOT of water!

Well regular diapers swell up with water, swimmies don't. I would just get her a reusable swimming diaper they have them at babies r us.

Basically, they are only to hold in the poop.  Pee goes right through them.  We found that out the hard way when my hubby accidentally put one on The Boy once instead of his pull-up.  Suddenly he was all wet and we couldn't figure out what the heck happened!  OOPS!  So no, they are pretty much not absorbant at all.
