We are going to the water park and the pool a lot more and I need to find some swim dipes. I don't want to use the sposies, but I also don't like using the Bumpkins, b/c they are a little too bulky with a suit. Any suggestions? who sells them? Are they any good? Help!!

I hate to admit it, but i bought my dd's at target. Its white cotton lined with nylon and will hold ANYTHING. We go to the public pool almost every day and she has had 3+ accidents in the pool and the only way I can tell is the part sticking out seems a little grayer. It is a pain to get clean (I need to go and lay it in the sun) though. But for all of you CD mama's out there you should ahve all the secrets to clean smelling dipes (I am still awaiting my 1st CD baby in December)

They run big, she is 35 months and wears the XL which says that it only goes to 30 pounds, which she surpassed some time ago.

The one positive I see about the 'sposies is if they have an accident, it is much easier to clean up. Have you ever stood with your kid with her dipe and b cuit around her ankles cleaning up the remaining bm? But I am not sure that they hold anything but water and they look so uncomfortable.

Better check with the park, they might have wierd regulations, one of our poosl requires sposies and cloth swim diapers.....

good luck........

I've had great sucess with two types. I used the ones from Target last summer that are flannel lined with a plasticky outer. Mine had cute fabric prints on the outside. I now use a fuzzibunz second that wicked as a dipe. It works great! (As did the first ones I mentioned.). I am totally happy with the fuzzibunz and had not problems even with poops.
