Swim diapers do NOT work in a pinch
Here’s a news flash: Swim diapers, those colorful pull-on pants designed for use in the pool or at the beach, are NOT a good temporary substitute for the real thing.
We found this out yesterday when we ran out of diapers and put Pumpkin in a swim diaper leftover from this summer. Before we could go to the store for more real Pampers, it was time for Pumpkin’s snack. While her dad was feeding her applesauce, she let go with a pee. When he picked her up from her high chair, her jeans were sopping wet, her legs were covered in urine and the high chair had a puddle. She might as well have been bare-bummed!
These diapers don’t work at all! So be warned: If you think swim diapers will prevent urine from getting in the pool, they most definitely will not. Maybe they help contain poop Ã¢â‚¬â€ I hope I never have to find out.
