My hat’s off to all of the cloth-diapering mamas out there. I gave it a try and found that it was not for me. If you’re a million times more dedicated to your cloth-diapering regimen, you will love the Swimsuit Diaper by Kushies. And if you’re not, this swim diaper can be used as a bikini bottom over your child’s disposable diaper. That’s how I used it.
Featuring a quick-drying nylon outer shell and a 100% cotton-terry inner lining, this swim diaper was made for comfort and optimum protection against leaks. Many swim clubs require that children wear plastic bottoms over their diaper, and I saw this as a much more comfortable alternative. Kushies has a selection of bright unisex patterns as well as styles for girls, and patterns for boys. The sizes range from small to extra-large based on weight as per the sizing chart.
Since Emma now weighs 26 pounds, I requested a size large for her. It barely fit her waistline, which surprised me because she is very thin and tall. We tried this out at our swim club and I paired it with a UV-protected top. I really liked the ease of getting this on and off. This swim diaper is fastened at the sides like a regular diaper, but using velcro. Far easier than having my daughter lean on me as she steps her legs through, and a thousand times faster.
The swimsuit diaper is eco-friendly and economical, with a price tag of only $10.99 a pair. Kushies has offered a ten percent discount for my readers by using the promotion code: pennypinch2010 at checkout.
