Do you have a cloth diaper question? Every week, I answer a user submitted question, and ask for reader input as well.
Questions don’t have to be cloth diaper related, just email maria at change-diapers.com with “Mailbox Mondays” in the subject, or fill out my contact form for readers, which you will always be able to find on my Contact Page.
Can you recommend swim diaper options for a girl? I have heard you can use an unstuffed pocket but don’t really know how that works…
Hi Leigh! Cloth swim diapers are just like their disposable counterparts, in that they are intended to hold solid waste, but allow liquid (pool water & urine) to run through. I’ve also heard of people using a pocket as a swim diaper. I’d be concerned about the exposure to chlorine damaging the diaper, so I’d only use one that had delaminated, or that I was otherwise not using. I’d also wonder if you’d get water caught inside it!
I’ve used Kushies swim diapers and Bummis Swim Diapers (and bought a large Bummis swim diaper the next year.) You can click those links to read reviews. Both were fine, nothing really outstanding to report!
In addition to the Bummis Swimmi & Kushies swim diapers, you can find Appleckeeks swim diapers, Imse Vimse swim diapers and Imse Vimse tankini tops (squee!) to match. (affiliate links.) Mother-Ease has swim diapers too.
Do you use cloth swim diapers? What brands have you used? If you have used a pocket as a swim diaper long term, did you experience any fading, or damage to elastic or PUL?
