    Default Sposie Question

    So all that talk about CDing and poosplosions reminded me of something. The local pools here require baby to wear a disposable swim diaper under a reusable one. Kinda ridiculous IMO. Seriously, two diapers?! Anyway, I've got my reusable one. What brands of disposable swim diaper are available? What brands have you tried and liked? Also, I'm clueless when it comes to sizing in disposables. Are the weight ranges pretty accurate or does it depends on your baby's chubbiness? Teagan's got thunder thighs and quite a little pot belly. If the weight range is, 16-22 lbs and she's 21, would I be better off getting the next size up? Or is that asking for trouble?

    I'd go next size up. Tobey is in nappies for size 15-31lbs (size 4) and he is about 18/19lbs I'd guess. The size 3 leaked all the time so I had to move up. And I've only used Huggies swim nappies as I was given loads from my SIL. But they worked just fine. Ohh, although here you just get size S/M/L sizes...but they go in lb sizes too so you should be able to work it out

    ya i would definitely go the next size up as well. the only swimming diapers i have noticed are huggies, but i am sure pampers has them as well. i personally prefer huggies, but i do go back and forth between the two when i start having issues with one of them.

    We use Huggies swim diapers. The sizing for swim diapers is different than regular. They come in S, M, & L. There is a weight range on them as well. With my experience though, I would probably recommend a S swim diaper at this age. Different from regualar diapers in which I do use a size up if they are close to the weight limit. Just my suggestion b/c we just got back from Miami where Lucas used size S swim diapers which were almost too big for him, but are the smallest they have, and my 2 1/2 yr old (who is about 27 lbs) used a M, which fit her just fine.

    From my googling, the Huggies size small fits 16-26 lbs. Medium fits 24-34 lbs. Large fits 32 lbs plus. So, I guess we're not really on the border between sizes anyway. Thanks everyone!

    Funny your brought this up because there is a really good sale going on at Walgreens this week only.. They are 6.99 and with the in store coupon it makes them 4.99. If you use coupons you may be even able to get the price down to 2.99. I bought 4 packs today for both kiddos.

    I think huggies is the only brand that I see that make them.. The little swimmers.. You might be able to find generic brands somewhere else. The sizes I would do a size up. Since Teagan has those chunky legs I would go with a large.

    Well maybe a Medium. To me the Large looks like a 5 or 6 size diaper..

    We used the city pool with DS1 and they had the same dumb rule about the 2 diapers. Its all about being able to catch the poo since all swim diapers don't do a thing for pee. I used to just use the cloth type of swim diaper under his trunks, one that I knew fit well and would contain the poo, and then lied about using the sposie since no one physically checked.

    This is what I did too, when 2 were required. Usually my kids only wore one "diaper" though. I am not sure what the US cloth swimmers look like, but here like look liked a really thicked lined bathing suit. They are super tight around the legs and waist, nothing leaks out.
    I have only bought one pack of swimmer sposies. I am not sure how many I have actually gone through/thrown out, but someone told me you can wash them just like cds, so that is what I have always done. So far the one pack has lasted through 2 kids! Also my kids have never pooped in the water or while wearing a swimmer diaper.
