    Top 5 Best Swim Diapers | 2017 Reviews

    If you are planning to have a fun family swim with an infant or a toddler at the pool or at the beach, you have to sort out what will you use to cover your little one’s bum area. Imagine this, you and your little one at the pool having so much fun, then all of the sudden, he pooped. Game over for swimming and let’s admit that it’s kind of embarrassing as this can shut down pool areas for days too, so instead of “fun family outing” it could result into “a disaster and embarrassing day at the pool.”

    Luckily, we now have diapers for our little ones specifically used in water, may it be the swimming pool or the beach. Now, the next major question is how does swim diapers work?

    We have reusable and disposable swim diapers. Disposable swim diapers function a little closer to your regular disposable diapers, except that they can be used in the water. They could hold a little pee, but could be troublesome when your kid pooped on them, because they rather sag a lot. Also the fact that you might need a large pack during a whole day’s swimming activity, definitely not eco-friendly. Reusable swim diapers on the other hand, might not be able to hold pee, but will definitely be effective for poop. In addition, they could be washed and reused, making them the cost effective choice between the two.

    If you are asking, “do little swimmers hold pee?” the answer is no. So make sure your little one had already peed before splashing in the water then make him pee outside the water from time to time to avoid peeing in the water.

    If you plan on buying swim diapers, and are wondering “which swim diapers are the best for my kid?” here are the top 5 to help you make a great decision.​

And although the Alva swim diaper has appropriate sizes to choose from, it has front snaps that could be adjusted according to your baby’s measurements prolonging its use.

Despite the frequent washing that the Alva swim diapers might encounter, the vibrant colors of these diapers have remained the same, which is absolutely lovely. Just bear in mind that you need to always wash them with care, as you would with any of your baby’s essentials and do not wash it together with your clothes.

    Aside from the sizing limitations, there’s no other reason why we wouldn’t like the AppleCheeks swim diaper, it could just be a little expensive than any other swim diapers, but it is definitely worth the price which is why it’s our 3rd best choice.

    Since this swim diaper is not absorbent for pees, use this only if your little one is about to swim in the water. If you are torn in choosing between two sizes, remember that it is always better to choose the larger option since the Kushies swim diapers usually measures a tad smaller. It is our 5th choice since your kid could easily outgrow it and might last only for a season, not so great if you are fan of handing down garments to another child.

    When it comes to choosing the best cloth swim diaper, the quality matters a lot and is only secondary to the price because you only want the best for your child after all. We want our kids to enjoy the water and having a poop accident could end it prematurely. We believe that reusable swim diapers are great in preventing accidents to dampen you and your child’s spirit and at the same time are very eco-friendly.
