The diaper should have a waterproof PUL (polyurethane laminate) lining, like modern-day cloth diapers, which will hold in the BF poo even though it’s runny.

I used a reusable swim diaper and loved it.  It held in the poop in just fine.

If you want a little extra insurance, you could always get a Flip cover or one of the other cloth diaper covers that you’d put over a prefold/flat diaper, and use that on top of the swim diaper.

I’ve heard good things about iPlay, but technically you aren’t supposed to take an infant under 6 months in a pool. To each their own though.

I haven’t used my reusable swim diaper yet but the advice I got was to make sure you change them asap if they do poop, it ll hold it in…for a little bit lol.  And around here swim lessons start at 3 months!

sprusa6:  We’ve been using the reusable swim diaper in our swim class, luckily we haven’t had any poo incidents but they must work otherwise the pool at swim would always be closed 😉 The swim teachers advised us when taking LO out to swim that we should keep their shoulders under water to help them maintain their body temperature and that we should not keep them in the water for longer than 30 minutes because thats the max time they can hold their body temp. The water at swim class is 90*. Also, after our 30 min class LO is usually knocked out for a good 2-4 hour nap (as is my friends baby who takes the class with me). Happy swimming!
