So, I've been cloth diapering (prefolds and covers) DS#2 since February. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"> I part-timed cloth diapered DS#1, but I'm sure I did the disposable swim diaper thing when he was at the pool. And, that was like freaking 10 years ago, anyway. I don't remember things from 10 days ago anymore! LOL<br><br>
So, I know they sell cloth swim diapers. Do I use a prefold inside the swim diaper? Won't that just get saturated with pool water? Or, do I just put the swim diaper on? Isn't that really like just putting a cover on, anyway, or is something different? Then, do I put something over the swim diaper as well?<br><br>
LOL I feel silly even asking, but I really have no idea! Our neighborhood pool opened yesterday, and I took the kids today. It's still too cool for DS#2 to partake in the fun, but soon it'll be HOT and I'd love to bring him into the pool.<br><br>
Thanks guys!

Just the swim diaper. It only contains poo, not pee.<br><br>
LMK when you guys head to the pool! We'd love to join you! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Thanks B&G!<br><br>
Will def let you know when we are heading over. I need a swim diaper (of course) and a life jacket. We can go sometime when DS#1 is in school, and do the kiddie pool (if that's what you like), or when DS#1 is there I'll have to be in/around the big pool. Let me know what works for you! I heard Thursday is going to be <b>hot</b>. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/FIREdevil.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="devil"><br><br>
(Oh! This is totally OT, but I got a crazy letter from the HOA. Jump over to preteens and teens to check out my thread abou it, I'd love your opinion on it.)<br><br>
Back to our regularly scheduled program-<br><br>
I'll pick up a swim diaper this week. Yay!

A swim diaper is basically just a cover. It is only intended to hold in poop.

I honestly think the things I bought as "swim diapers" are just bloomers with lining. It may say it can hold in a poo, but I seriously doubt it!

You can just use a cover or if you use pockets or anything else just don't add the absorbent layers as a swim diaper and save your $

I'd buy the actual swim diaper, they aren't expensive (bummis makes a great one..super cute prints too), the chlorine can ruin your covers.

iPlay makes a fairly sturdy swim diaper with a soft terry liner.
