What do you have your toddle in diaper wise when you swim or they play in the sprinklers?
I took my toddler to the public sprinklers the other day and I don’t have any Little swimmers or anything so I just put him in a clean diaper and shorts. But some other mom was making snarky comments about him being in a diaper. Her daughter had a whole swimming get up haha.
Is it gross or something? I mean I could have just let him go in shorts but I didn’t want him to poo. I felt like a hillbilly.

My son is 10 months old and I bought a reusable swim diaper. It is sooo cute on him to. He also has a swim shirt on and a hat.

Ages ago I used to work at a public pool and kids in diapers were always required to wear some sort of swim bottoms. Diapers absorb too much water and weigh them down & they can also break down and end up in the filters.
Personally I don’t think it’s any different if they’re wearing a regular diaper or little swimmers, if they’re going to pee/poo in the water it’s all the same in the end.

If it was an actual pool, I would have said he should really have a swim diaper. Since it was just a sprinkler and not actually submerged IN water, I think a diaper was fine. Though of course the swim diaper is best if you have one.

Haha yeah it’s America. They are public sprinklers for the kids to play in. Although I usually want to jump in too.
I bought some Little Swimmers, but I was wondering if I was just super ghetto or something about it. I didn’t even think about it being unclean.
