Swimming

Next month my family and I are going away for the weekend. We are staying in a hotel with an indoor pool. Do you think it is safe/ok to let a 6 month old swim in an indoor hotel pool? Also, what type of swimming diapers do you use? I was looking at reusable ones but it said they do not hold pee in, only poop. Do the disposable ones hold pee in? Can anyone recommend a good one?

There are disposable swim diapers out there- I know Huggies makes some, but I'm sure there are other brands too.

As long as you are holding on to him tightly, I'm sure he'd have a blast! I say go for it!

Go for it! As long as it looks clean lol.

NO swim diaper holds in pee, so don't worry about that. Go with a reusable, they are much better at holding in the poop, and better for the environment. Some pools in my city have a ban on disposable swim diapers.

We used to take Brandon into the pool when he was a baby...he loved it. I agree about the swim diapers, they don't hold pee, but we used Little Swimmers. I don't know how well they worked because he never pooped in them though...

I had DD1 in swimming lessons at this age and just put disposable huggies swimmers on her. If the pool looks clean, go for it.

We took Maya to Great Wolf Lodge 2 weekends ago.. She had a blast splashing and playing in the water. We used Huggies brand swim diapers. She did have 2 BMs in the swim diapers and it held it in.

As the other ladies have said, no swim diaper holds in pee... I LOVE our cloth/reusable swim diapers... Bummis brands.
