Swimming is one of the most popular fun activities for babies and kids but the fun does not just stop there, think about the cute outfits that those kids are wearing. Lovely!
In most cases, babies and kids below three or four years of age are required to wear a swim diaper when swimming or playing in a public pool. Even if your kids are potty trained, it might be best to keep them in a swim diaper for a while to avoid accidents.
What is the purpose of wearing a swim diaper?
Public swimming facilities require that babies and kids must use swimming diapers due to the following purpose:
- Prevent poop in the water
- Decrease the spread of fecal bacterial contamination
- Prevent spreading waste bacteria like E.coli.
- Prevent individual from getting such bacteria's in and around the pool
If poop is in the pool, the facility must close down in order for them to drain and clean it. You don't want to be that parent who did not put on a swim diaper and caused the whole evacuation due to contamination.
Toddlers are not exempt from swim diapers. They still need to wear one especially when they are anywhere near the pool.
Why using a regular disposable diaper is a no, no, no.
Babies cannot wear the regular diapers in the pool because they are not designed to be used in the water. It will not keep the poop in place and since regular diapers absorb fluid, it will likely fall apart once it reaches its water holding capacity. The same goes for cloth diapers that can soak up water and become saggy.
But for swim diapers, the non-absorbency is a great factor when swimming in the pool. It is designed to hold poop but not any form of liquid so you will not have to worry about a saggy bottom.
Now, the fun part is that you can still wear your baby's cute swimsuit over a swim diaper. We like our swim diapers at Beau and Belle Littles because of the many designs that you can choose from including solid color prints.
