A swim diaper is a pair of pull-up pants that holds in solids while liquids passes through. Swim diapers don't include any absorbency, since their purpose is to prevent normal hard formed stool leaks in to swimming pools. Babies that are ill or those that have diarrhea should not swim in public or private pools.
Learning to swim is difficult enough for a little person without them having to worry about swimming pool accidents. Reusable swim diapers can be worn alone or under another swim suit.
Growing Popularity of Reusable Swim Diapers
Reusable swim diapers have become very popular at public pools because disposable diapers can disintegrate in the pool environment and cause filter and pump problems. Some pools have even banned disposable diapers.
Many swimming pool operators now require plastic pants over a swim diaper for children 3 years old and younger used in conjunction with a disposable.
Infant Pull-On Swim Diapers are designed to allow liquids to sieve through while retaining solids. They are durable after multiple washes.
