Swim nappies are a real help when you go swimming with your little one. Of course, babies and toddlers sometimes have an accident in the water. With a washable swimming nappy, this is fortunately quickly remedied!
How do washable swim nappies work?
Swimming nappies work quite easily. If your baby has pooped while swimming or paddling, the washable nappy prevents the feces from ending up in the water. You take your little one to the changing room or toilet, empty the nappy into the toilet and then rinse it thoroughly under the tap. Put the nappy back on and your baby is ready to go back into the water!
Swimming nappies, on the other hand, don't stop urine very well. Washable swim nappies like the ones we sell have a plastic layer, so the first bit of urine will be stopped. (This is in contrast to disposable nappies, which stop almost nothing.) Especially this is the case, if the swim nappy fits well on the legs. But with all that splashing and playing in the water also washable nappies unfortunately offer no 100% guarantee that the urine does not end up in the water. So you can especially stop the big message with swim nappies.
Washable swim nappies vs. disposable swim nappies
Washable swim nappies have a number of advantages over the disposable version. For example, they are very handy for taking along on holiday: you don't have to pack mountains of disposable nappies. And of course it would be a shame if you arrived at your holiday destination, only to find out that they don't sell swimming nappies there!
In addition, washable nappies are also a responsible choice. Instead of throwing away one nappy at a time, you use the same nappy over and over again. This saves a lot of raw materials and is also great for your wallet. Because the swim nappy is washable, you just get it clean in the washing machine. A washable swim nappy is therefore both more environmentally friendly and cheaper!
There is also a difference between washable swim nappies and disposable swim nappies when it comes to stopping urine, although the difference is small. With a washable swim nappy, there is a plastic layer on the inside. This layer stops a bit of pee, but not much and is also not guaranteed as your little one moves a lot of course. However, disposable swim nappies do not stop urine at all. You could also use a washable swim nappy if you try to get your toddler potty-trained.
