Narwhals 0-3 years Nageuret Swim Diaper (Green)

$ 18.99

 

What is it: A reusable swim diaper perfect for children ages 0 - 3 years old. The base color of this nature swim diaper is green and is adorned with Don our sophisticated Narwhal. This infant to toddler swimsuit comes with adjustable buttons on both the waist and thigh areas. 

How to use: Adjust the diaper so that the elastic is tight around the baby's waist and thighs. It has to be tight in order to keep a poop in, but you don't want deep purple marks, light pink marks okay and to be expected. If you want a tighter fit around the butt adjusts the rise snaps in the front to gather the extra fabric. There will be some water in the diaper since it isn't a water-tight seal. That being said make sure you change or baby as soon as he/she poops. 

How to clean: Knock the solids in the toilet (you may have to rinse the diaper out a bit before washing). Wash in a full normal load of your washer. For stains and smells let soak overnight with dish soap in hot water, wash regularly, and dry in the sun. 

Important things to know: We are a family-owned company in Loveland, CO. To keep quality up and prices low we have sourced our fabrics and have our diapers hand manufactured in China. 

This swim diaper is adjustable for babies and toddlers. The waist adjusts to three different sizes to grow with your baby and you can gather the extra fabric in the front for a tighter fit on the bum. 

Why you need this in your life:  Swim diapers are designed to only contain poop, so change once you're at the pool, and don't be surprised if some pee leaks out the legs.  We designed our swim diapers without the extra absorbing layer of fabric because once in the pool that fabric absorbs the pool water and makes it difficult to dry and holds that water against your baby's skin which can cause chaffing or rash. 😳

What else you need to know: These super cute Narwhals print features Don our sophisticated Narwhal. The scientific name for narwhal is monodon Monoceros, which is where Don originated. 

What fans have said about this diaper: "This swim diaper is AMAZING! We used it for the first time this past weekend. Baby pooped THREE times in it!!! None of the times were we in the water. I knew the baby would poop that day but didn’t want to wait around outside the pool in her regular diaper. Around 1:30 pm I get off a ride and the husband is flagging me down lol. I knew what had happened (pooped twice, apparently!)

I took the baby into the showers and rinsed her and the diaper off. I could not BELIEVE how much poop there was since there was no explosion or leakage or blowout!! There was like no visible diaper. Just poop. It rinsed off super easy though.

Two hours later, more poop. Lots of it. Repeated the same steps as above (this time using the handicap shower with a detachable showerhead and place to sit, mama got smart!).

I cannot recommend this diaper enough! So glad it’s adjustable and has many more wears ahead (baby is 6 months and size 3 diapers)."

FAQs

Is a diaper to be worn under?

A: 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

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

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

Lingering Poop Stains and Smells:

A: 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?

A: 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?

A: 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?

A: It’s made of Nylon and spandex.

Do swim diapers contain pee?

The short answer is no. Swim diapers aren't designed to contain urine. There are some on the market that might hold some if your Little goes while their swim diaper is dry, but once they get into the pool that absorbing layer is soaked with water and won't contain any urine (or any other liquids for that matter).

Why doesn't the Nageuret have an absorbing layer?

We thought about adding a removable absorbing insert, but it was too difficult to remove before going swimming. Having that extra layer holds more water next to your baby's skin, which can make them 1. Colder when you get them out. 2. Possibly cause diaper rash because, let's be honest wet fabric is kind of scratchy.
So we recommend changing your Little once you get to the pool and don't be embarrassed/surprised if they pee before getting in, Beau did all the time prior to potty-training.

Will the Nageuret Leak?

Swim diapers are only a temporary barrier for poop while swimming. Eventually the water will dissolve the poop and it will start leaking. The only way to prevent leaking would be to create a completely impermeable water barrier around your child's waist and legs, like duct taping or something... Now that doesn't sound very nice, so we suggest:

  1. Making sure it is on tight around the legs and waist, but not too tight. It should cause slight red marks from the tightness of the fit.
  2. Don't go swimming if your child has had diarrhea within 24 hours, but longer is better.
  3. If you exclusively breastfeed your baby (that's awesome keep up the good work) or if you use formula don't write this one off either (don't worry I used formula with Beau, so no judgement here. A fed baby is a happy baby).
  4. Explosive poops! They aren't containable by a normal diaper, so don't expect your Nageuret to contain it. It contains A LOT! but we all know the power of an explosive poop.
  5. Check the diaper often for poop! Change them as soon as you can and put a clean diaper on. (We recommend having at least 2 swim diapers with you at all times for this very reason!)

How do you wash the Nageuret?

Since most of the time you'll go swimming and not have a poopy swim diaper (which is super nice) wash in a regular load with cold water. Use regular soap. Avoid products like bleach or oxiclean.
If your Little does poop: Knock all the solids in the toilet. Rinse it as well as possible before washing. Adding a little bit of detergent to the swim diaper before washing helps with stains and smell. If you have a HE Front Loading washer, washing with a larger load helps agitate the stain out. Wash in warm water.
You can air dry the swim diaper or throw it in the dryer.
If you have lingering stains you can try hanging it out in the sun, which will naturally bleach the fabric.
