FAQ Swim Diapers

What if I love more than one print and cannot decide?

We offer discounts on multiple swim diapers so you don't have to choose between your favorites!  

Is a diaper to be worn under?

The Nageuret like other swim diapers are only designed to hold solids. If your baby isn't eating solid foods yet I recommend double layering either with two reusable or with a disposable underneath. Some pools require wearing a disposable underneath a reusable so check with your pool. NEVER wear a regular diaper underneath because it will explode and it is really difficult to get the sodium polyacrylate out of the pool.

What happens when my baby pees?

we actually specifically designed these not to be absorbent at all so that kiddos don't get cold when they're out of the water.

Actually all swim diapers are only meant to contain solids, not pee. Even (especially) the bigbox brands are not designed to hold urine because they don't contain sodium polyacrylate water crystals like their regular counterparts do and therefore, do not absorb much liquid. If they did, they'd puff up immediately (like a normal diaper) once they hit the water and lose their "containment" power. Since they are only slightly absorbent, as soon as the go into the water they become fully saturated (with water) and are unable to absorb anything else.

Sooooo when babies pee, it just goes in the pool. Gross, I know but that's one of the reasons why public pools are all chlorinated. Sorry for the long answer, but thanks for the question

Lingering Poop Stains and Smells?

Soak over night in hot water with dawn dish soap. Wash in the washer with a regular full load. Line dry in the sun with the white inner mesh side out.

Where are you swim diapers from?

We are a family owned mom and pop based in Loveland, CO. All of our swimsuits are designed in the US and Denmark and shipped directly from our home in Colorado.  

How is this different from cloth diapers?

There are a lot of types of cloth diapers. All In One, Pocket, Covers, Wool Covers etc. AIO have all the absorbing material attached to the diaper and if you went swimming with one all that material would absorb the water and it would be bulky and get water EVERYWHERE when you get out. They are also on average $25.00 a diaper and most cloth diaper moms I know want to be able to use their cloth diapers for a long time and with multiple kids. Pocket diapers have a fleece material on the inside which will absorb some water, but the biggest difference is there is elastic ALL the way around our swim diapers. Most cloth diapers don't have elastic in the front and only a small amount in the back. The absorbing material is what keeps them from leaking. They could easily leak if you go swimming because the water easily flows in and out of the diaper. Wool covers wouldn't work at all in the pool because water would flow in and out of the material. Regular covers could work, but most covers don't have anything between the cover and the skin because you would be using a prefold underneath and you wouldn't use a prefold when swimming. 

So our diapers:

  • Have elastic all the way around the waist and legs keeping solids contained.
  • There's not an absorbent layer just a polyester mesh material that is super soft and will hold on to the solids.
  • On average pockets and AIO cost $25 and ours is only $16 rounded up. The chlorine in pools will eventually eat away at the PUL layer that all cloth diapers have (except for wool covers obviously).

Swim Diapers are only designed to contain solids. If your baby pees then it will leak out the legs so we recommend changing right before swimming. And ALL swim diapers are a TEMPORARY barrier for poop so you need to change when your baby poops and put on a clean swim diaper to keep swimming 

What is the elastic around the diaper composed of? Does this product contain dry rubber or natural rubber latex additives?

It’s made of Nylon and spandex.
