Disposable vs Cloth Swim Diapers





The first time I went to the swimming pool with my baby, I had no idea that there were reusable swim diapers...It didn't even cross my mind but it should have been obvious because there are cloth diapers! My friend little boy was swimming in what I thought was an adorable speedo. When I complimented her on his cute swimming suit and asked where she got it, she informed me that it was just a swim diaper and that they are amazing! I had to try it out for myself...

Huggies Little Swimmers

About: A disposable swim diaper that is more absorbent than every day diapers and they don't swell. Easy open sides

Why we like it:

1. They are disposable and are great when you are traveling and you aren't staying somewhere with a washing machine.

2. I used these while we were at a lake for a week while staying on a houseboat. They were so convenient and thank goodness, hardly any diaper rash.
