The chlorine will eventually degrade the elastic...it doesn't happen all at once, but it will happen faster than under no chlorine conditions. We have a chlorine pool, and I noticed it with the swim diaper I use.

I'm guessing the swim suit is a modesty thing...when you find out, please tell us!

I was just reading a Lyme paper written by my doctor. This paper indicates that a primary route of infection by the borrelia spirochete (Lyme) is via urine! This paper also indicated that the lyme bacteria infects the bladder of all mammals that it can infect at all. So, how could pee be sterile?

Just called the waterpark again and left another message for the supervisor to call me back. Hopefully I get my call back this time! How should I word my question.

Should I just bluntly ask if children are required to wear bathing suits over swim diapers and what the reason for this is? If it ends up being a modesty thing I'm going to bring my kids there next time with just bottoms on(swim diaper under for baby). Hey, it's a bathing suit- right? (My kids actually hate one pieces that's all I had at the moment though.)

Probably because they don't have a reasonable answer.

I didn't leave the question in my message with the girl at the desk though. I just told her that I needed to speak with the supervisor.

For those that use pocket diapers as swim diapers, you might want to reconsider.

Years ago (it must have been five years?) there was a thread in the diapering forum about someone who did just that and her baby almost drowned. The pocket filled with air and upended the baby face down in the shallow water.

It was recommended that if you use a pocket diaper, cut the pocket so air cannot get trapped in there.

I cannot find the thread but here is one where the incident is mentioned. Should be fine if you are holding the baby the entire time but if the babe is out of arms, buy a swim diaper. They are $7 at Target.
