The Swimmi swim diaper from Montreal-based Bummis.
Let’s talk poop. I’m assuming everyone reading this is a parent….right? I know many of my conversations now revolve around poop and various other gross things. Did you read Part 2 of my favourite things? Ya, how life has changed!
In case you don’t know already, when you go to a pool with a baby/toddler, you need to put them in something that’ll contain any accidents in the water. But not pee accidents, just solid ones. I learned the hard way, when I had baby number 1 sitting on my lap before our swimming lesson, that NO swim diaper absorbs pee. Gah!
I love this line from Bummi’s website:
…rest assured – nobody will ever have to empty the pool because of your little darling!
We’ve gone through three sizes of the Swimmi and used them for two kids. At about $15 each, that’s saved me a lot of money instead of buying throwaway swimmers. And the fabric, elastic, and velcro are still in great condition on all of them. I don’t have to throw it out if he just gets wet for only 2 minutes (because he doesn’t want to get his delicate paws wrinkly), and if we forget his actual bathing suit he still looks super-duper cute. Check out those thigh rolls!
It’s easy to wash, and I usually just throw it in with swim towels or with the cloth diapers. Only thing is I find they are sized a bit small, so ordering up isn’t a bad idea.
You can purchase these online through stores like well.ca, snugglebugz.ca, directly from Bummis, or at retailers listed on their site.
