Aww, summer! Time for summer picnics, get togethers and of course, swimming! What little one doesn't love to spend time splashing about! But for the little one who is not yet potty trained there's that small issue of diapers in the water.

So you head to the grocery store to pick up a pack of diapers made just for swimming. But have you ever actually tried a disposable swim diaper? Back when my son was a baby, we were given some and to be honest, I hated them! They seemed stiff and uncomfortable. They were less than pretty to look at. And they were expensive... especially if you are like my kids and in and out all day. One dip in the pool and the diaper was done. One run through the sprinklers and that's money down the drain! I don't know about you, but I'd rather spend my extra summer money on treats from the ice cream truck than on diapers!! Is it any surprise that even those non-cloth users find themselves looking into cloth options like AppleCheeks Swim Diapers for their summer fun!

How do swim diapers work?
This is a great question, because honestly, if a diaper is supposed to absorb liquid, would it not get full and heavy as soon as baby gets in the pool. With a regular diaper, absolutely!! So, what makes a swim diaper different? Where a typical everyday diaper is meant to absorb liquids and prevent leaks, a swim diaper only needs to keep solids inside the diaper and out of the pool.



Why choose cloth? Do I have to be a cloth diaper-er to use cloth swim diapers?
We could go into all of the reasons on why cloth diapering in general is a fantastic option (better for the planet, etc), but let's just keep it simple: THEY'RE CHEAPER! Buy it once and use it over and over and over. When you're done, toss it in the wash and it's ready for next time. No more heading to the store to buy more diapers, one or two are all you need! As a cloth diaper-er, of course, this is the most natural option... but even for those who use disposable, it's ideal too. In fact if you've been curious about cloth but hesitant to start, it's a great way to get your feet wet. You'll enjoy the savings and benefits of cloth, but without the pressure! Afraid of laundry? No big deal! Because swim diapers don't contain PUL, you can just toss them in with the rest of your swimming wear! Super easy!




Why AppleCheeks Swim Diapers?
We personally love AppleCheeks for their unique envelope design that is super soft and very comfortable for my little girl. They used that fantastic design to design the perfect swim solution. Rather than PUL, the swim diaper features  two layers of 100% polyester Canadian-milled mesh that allow water to move in and out of the diaper comfortable while keeping any messes in! Their signature two-size system with snaps at the waist and separately adjustable snaps at the thigh means your little one is guaranteed a comfortable, long-last fit. Size 1 fits babies from 7-23 pounds and the Size 2 fits babies 18-35 pounds! With wide size ranges, it is likely that the diaper will last you all through the summer, and possibly for several summers to come!



AppleCheek Swim Diapers truly are a fantastic swim solution for cloth and non-cloth users alike! See more of what AppleCheeks has to offer at the links below:

  3. I loved the size 1 diapers on my 4 month old, unfortunately she is between sizes now and I can't get a good fit for her extra chubby thighs. I would love to try the size 3 on my 3 year old with the 3 ply bamboo inserts, the size two is just a bit too tight.
