Swim Diaper - Opal
A great combination of fun and function, featuring an adorable printed waterproof outer, lined with a soft terry inner that will stop solid messes in their tracks. Stretch side snaps give a custom fit and make for easy clean ups!
Cloth swim diapers are made to be worn, washed, and worn again. After wearing, we suggestwashing, especially if your baby pooped in the diaper. To clean a soiled cloth swim diaper, remove as much solid matter from the diaper as you can, place it in a dry pail, wash on a warm cycle with detergent, and tumble dry low. You don’t need to soak cloth swim diapers.
While some people use a pocket diaper or a cloth diaper cover without the inserts for swimming, we don’t recommend it. Even though many diaper covers are waterproof, in a pool they will slowly start to fill up with water, which will weigh your baby down, and then when you take them out, all that water (and poop if there is any) will likely leak out the leg openings. Repeated exposure to chlorine will also ruin the waterproofing on a cloth diaper cover.
Cloth swim diapers are made to hold in solid waste, let water out, and stand strong against chlorine. They’re the safer and best choice for swimming.
No, you do not need to prep wash your swim diaper since it isn’t an absorbency diaper. It’s just used to keep the “stuff” contained until you can get your baby out of the water to change them.
We’ve only used 3 times and haven’t had a dirty diaper yet, but I’m confident we’ll manage ok when that happens. It’s both a bit stretchy and snug in the right places. I love that the diaper is adjustable so that we can use it for at least this whole swim season.
Just love this subtle, muted pink of opal. Fits great, does it’s job, and cute to boot. What more do you want?
