Pockets as swim nappies?

Postby jules070603 » Fri Feb 12, 2010 2:37 pm

Hopefully we are taking Imogen swimming for the first time tomorrow.

I think I have some hu**ies little swimmers somewhere BUT will a coolababy without the insert work OK as a swim nappy do you think?

I don't see why not, we've used fuzzi's to go swimming before I found an imse vimse swim nappy that i loved.

I have heard people using them before and they should work. I would just be wary of the chlorine having an effect on them if used regularly so have always bought proper swim nappies, we also like the Imse Vimse swim nappy

Having said that though, Coolababies are so cheap you probably don't need to worry too much

I was always worried about the chlorine too!

If you are looking for a swim nappy I have a cute one I am looking to sell! It's an aquanappy one

We use a fuzzie, just a plain cream one and they have stood up very well, we used them every day on holiday last year and every time we go swimming at home.
Hope she enjoys her swim, Gracie was 3 weeks first time she went and loved it. x

Thanks for the replies.

I think I'll use the coolababy one tomorrow and then have a think. It was the chlorine I was bothered about really.

Jan - Might get in touch about that nappy.

We would have gone last week but Zach was poorly, we made a new years resolution to start making more of an effort at weekends instead of getting lost in the housework/odd jobs or just not bothering to go out :roll: :oops:

I have used a fuzzi on Molly when we've gone swimming - mind you we've only taken her twice :oops: so I wasnt really concerned about the exposure to chlorine, plus it was the only use the fuzzi got! If you have any spare pocket you dont mind using regularly as a swim nappy then thats fine, but if you plan to go to the pool a lot then it might be worth getting a swim nappy, even a preloved one will do the job well. Some pound shops and toy shops sell swim nappies quite cheaply too.
