I was going to include swimming nappies in a post I’m writing about reuseable nappies, but I decided they were worthy of their own post. Even if reuseable nappies aren’t your thing, please don’t write off the swim ones!!
We love taking Arthur swimming. He started weekly swimming lessons at 4 weeks old plus we would try to take him so Mr B could have time with him in the water. Then for the last 6 months we’ve been lucky enough to go swimming most days.
When we started we went for the obvious and easy option of little swimmers, but at £5.95 for 12 they’re not cheap. I would hunt out offers which helped but still not ideal.
When we got the opportunity to live abroad for 6 months I had to seriously look at different options. I couldn’t take lots of nappies with me due to weight and space issues. I did also want to limit our environmental footprint and not add to the Seychelles waste issue.
After doing some research I decided on tots bots swim nappies for £9.95 (I got ours from fill your pants) I got two and they have seen me through the trip and will continued to be used at home.
3. Excellent containment (thoroughly tested)!
4. Go on/off like a nappy, no-one wants poopy legs if having to pull them down!
5. Wash really well at 30/40 degrees.
From a money saving point alone these are fabulous but if you are going on holiday they save space/weight over disposables. Plus, they are of course a much more environmentally friendly option and are an easy step to make.
Would you consider reuseable swim nappies? Or do you use them and agree with my thoughts?
Please note: this is not a sponsored post, I paid for the nappies and wanted to share my experience with them. There are a number of different products in the market.
