While the official start to summer has yet to arrive, the hot weather is here. Families will be heading to beaches, lakes, and pools in search of ways to cool off and have fun in the heat. Cloth diapering doesn’t have to be left at home. Cloth swim diapers are available and comfortable options for your baby.
Kushies makes two different styles of swim diapers. One style is a bottom only version that attaches with Velcro-like closures and ties at the waist. The girl’s version is styled like a one piece swimsuit that ties at the neck. It also has Velcro-like closures and ties at the waist. Both versions are made with an outer nylon material and come in cute prints. They also feature gusseted legs to help contain any messes.
Bummis makes a swim diaper called the Swimmi. The Swimmi is made from an outer cotton print and an inner mesh layer with a coated nylon layer in between. It comes in a variety of neutral prints and attaches on your baby with Velcro-like material.
Imse Vimse makes a trim swim diaper that looks and feels like a swimsuit. The Imse Vimse swim diaper also features side snaps on one side to help aid in clean-up. If you want to go for the whole swimsuit look for your little girl Imse Vimse also offers a tankini top to give girls a little swim dress that matches the swim diaper.
Swim diapers are not designed to contain wetness. Diapers that contain wetness become waterlogged and heavy on a baby. Swim diapers are made to keep soiled material enclosed in the diaper. So as you head out to the lake, the beach, or the pool this summer consider reusable and comfortable cloth swim diapers.
