Swim nappy for a newborn?

Postby freyasmummy » Sun Apr 25, 2010 8:15 pm

Can someone recommend a nicely-fitting swim nappy for my 10lb chunky newborn? As soon as his umbilicus heals over we hope to take him swimming and I'd rather not use a dispo swim nappy!

look on ebay for the cotton bottoms ones. we had some for ages but gave them away ffp a while back. they're just a wrap i think but u can use them in the pool, we did with no issues. and they often have some funky patterns on too.x

How about just a small fuzzi. I have a small motherease one which looks pretty teeny, would probably work from that small

We started taking nathan at 4 months and used a imse vimse medium one with a medium happy swim nappy over the top.i'm not sure how big the smalls are but nathan was 8lb 6 at birth so mediums might fit.

I started ds swimming at 6 weeks - started off with a 'happy nappy' that the place made us use, very very quickly moved onto a kooshies swim nappy. They're quite good because they're like a wrap so easy to get off when wet.

A close fitting wrap or unstuffed pocket would do the job - but bear in mind the chlorine in the pool might damage the elastic so it might be best to keep one just for the pool :D

We have an imse vimse in large, unstretched waist is 12" and thighs 8", so I would think a medium would probably fit Ethan too
