Swim nappies are probably the most important part of taking your baby swimming. As a parent, it is your responsibility to ensure that your baby/child keeps any little accidents contained so as not to contaminate the pool. Any leaks will lead to the closure of the public pool and will result in hours of cleaning.
You definitely do not want to be that parent. I am sure that everybody reading this is very familiar with the disposable swim nappies that are readily available in supermarkets (Huggies being the most prominent brand) but have you heard of or considered using reusable swim nappies?
A swim nappy is different from a standard nappy in one main way– it does not absorb urine. The reason for this is because if you used a standard nappy in a pool it would also absorb the water around it which would cause the nappy to swell and become heavy. You can also navigate www.waladi.com.au/reusable-swim-nappies to buy reusable swim nappies.
Not only would this be very uncomfortable for your baby it would also be a drowning risk. A swim nappy has one purpose– to stop the fecal matter from entering the pool.
Swim nappies are available in both disposable and reusable options but whichever you opt for must do the job for you. A public pool will insist that every non-potty trained child should wear one with some stating that you must follow the double nappy system too.
