Swim diapers, or swim pants, are a specially-designed diaper that is meant to be used only in the pool or ocean to make sure that your little one’s bum is covered and contained. This guide will go over the types of swim diapers that are available and why swim diapers are essential for babies to wear.
What should a baby wear in the pool?
Standard swimming costumes are fine, but must be worn with a swim nappy to avoid accidents in the pool.

Alternatively, use a reusable swim nappy with your child’s usual swimming costume.
