Our new favorite family activity is swimming – Kaya loves it although doesn’t exactly know how to stay afloat.  I’m still not 100% sure about the etiquette rules of diapers and pools – as of now we put Kaya in a normal diaper with a swim diaper on top and then a bathing suit on top of that.  By the end of a swim session her regular diaper is saturated though, which makes me think if water can get in, urine can get out.  But she loves it too much to wait until she’s out of diapers to take her swimming.

  1. She certainly does look like she is enjoying the “swimming”. Our county rules are to wear “separate rubber/vinyl pants” (snug-fitting) on top of the swim diaper. This way no fecal material escapes. Believe me, you do not want this to happen. They have to close the whole pool to clean it and others are not happy, including you!! As far as the liquid leakage, not a problem…..lots of chlorine and pumps and filters! Have fun at the pool. Love the picture!


  2. Peeing in the pool isn’t really a big deal, it’s poop they are worried about. The best combo is a non-disposable swim diaper over a disposable. The non disposables are MUCH better at keeping the poop in, and the disposable keeps you from having to shake out poop and wash the diaper.
